Free Judiciary Teleconference: How to Settle Big Arguments
(ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Oct. 7, 2010) It's hard enough helping two people resolve a problem. How do large numbers of people or several federal agencies learn to work together to make decisions, especially when they each have their own unique point of view? Find out how experts use alternative dispute resolution to help large agencies work together to make tough decisions about plans and policies that can affect all of our futures.
The Maryland Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO) will offer a free teleconference about “Dispute Prevention: Facilitating Large Complex Public Policy Decisions” on Thursday, Oct. 21, from noon to 1 p.m.
The featured presenter is Doug Brookman, a nationally recognized mediator, facilitator and trainer. His company, Public Solutions, facilitates effective decision-making among arguing parties in complex, public settings.
This free lunchtime teleconference is designed for people who work with mediation or alternative dispute resolution, and also for people who want to learn more about peacemaking. Members of the public are invited to join the conversation.
