We are excited to announce that registration for this year's Northwest Dispute Resolution Conference is now open!

Check out the workshop descriptions and our inspiring line-up of local, national and international speakers. This promises to be a fun and timely program, beginning with Narcissists in Mediation (Dr. John Medina) and ending with a plenary on How Reality is Experienced, Shaped, and Changed: Working with Diverse Perspectives That Impact Effective Communication (Nina Meierding). As you will see, there is a skills training track designed especially for advocates; those programs cover both mediation and arbitration.
