The Request for Proposal for workshops for the 2017 Conference is now available:
(We encourage you to use the form in the Microsoft Word format. If needed, you can download a printable PDF here.)
Please submit your proposal(s) using the form. To be considered for the conference you must submit your proposal by November 7, 2016.
As in recent years, the conference will begin earlier this year: March 23-24, 2017. Like last year, we'll meet again on Thursday and Friday. New this year is the format of a half-day on Thursday, March 23, and full day on Friday, March 24.
We anticipate more than 300 individuals with a diverse array of professional backgrounds will attend in March, including dispute resolution professionals, lawyers of all practice levels, law students, human resource management, and insurance claims representatives. Creative, cutting-edge proposals are strongly encouraged!
If you have any questions about your proposal contact Kathy Kline, Conference Coordinator.
For inspiration to create your workshop proposal, see those that have been presented before. You can see all the offerings from previous conferences on the Previous Conferences page.
The Conference Workshop Proposal Process
The Northwest Dispute Resolution Conference Program Committee requests proposals for conference workshops early in the fall before the conference. Presenters are informed in January that their proposals have been accepted. The conference is usually held in the last weekend of March.
