On Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019, The American Bar Association’s Section of Dispute Resolution Ombuds Committee invites you to participate in the second celebration of a profession that has existed for centuries, yet remains relatively unknown and underutilized: the ombuds. This year’s theme is “Ombuds: Unusual Name. Important Service.”
Ombuds Day serves as an additional opportunity to educate and raise awareness among the public about the history and practices of the ombudsman profession, including the various ombuds models, the roles they play, the services they offer and the value provided.
The Rocky Mountain Regional Ombuds Day Event at CU Boulder will include:
- Ombuds Expo
- Ombuds panel discussion (livestream of panel discussion available)
- Keynote speaker Ken Cloke, JD, PhD, LLM, a world-recognized mediator will present “Conflict Revolution: Designing Preventative Systems for Chronic Social, Economic and Political Conflicts” (livestream of keynote available)
- Catered reception
- Ken Cloke book signing
