The IADC has entered into a strategic, two-year cross-promotional partnership with the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR), a global non-profit organization that advances dispute prevention and resolution practices and provides high quality solutions.
Through the collaboration, IADC members will gain access to the CPR’s numerous resources and publications, as well as preferential rates for CPR membership and attendance at CPR events, including the organization’s annual meeting that convenes panels on a variety of topics of interest to the alternative dispute resolution community. Both U.S. and international IADC members can apply to serve on CPR’s Panel of Distinguished Neutrals.
As part of the partnership, the IADC recommends CPR to its membership as an ADR provider whose arbitration, mediation, and dispute resolution services and rules can be utilized worldwide by the IADC’s approximately 2,500 members and their clients. In addition, the IADC will promote membership with the CPR among IADC members and will facilitate attendance by CPR corporate members at the IADC’s Corporate Counsel and International Corporate Counsel Colleges, which provide content of particular interest to the in-house community.
The IADC and CPR also will explore joint programming opportunities through the new collaboration.
“We believe the IADC’s collaboration with the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution will be a great partnership that delivers enhanced benefits and new professional development opportunities for our members,” said IADC President Amy Sherry Fischer.
CPR President and CEO Allen Waxman said, “With our goal of enhancing and improving the dispute prevention and resolution process, we look forward to a fruitful collaboration with IADC, and to providing our innovative dispute resolution services, thought leadership, tools and resources to an even broader audience.”
