Association for Conflict Resolution - Chicago Chapter

ACR-Chicago Programs

ACR-Chicago offers events that are designed to appeal to people from a broad range of practice areas including mediation, arbitration, human resources, employment, litigation, restorative justice, and education. 

Our traditional programs take place in the evening hours and are generally hosted by one of our partner organizations. Past programs have covered on a wide range of topics, including neuroscience and mediation, employment mediation, ethics, and restorative circles with youth.

ACR-Chicago also offers a TalkAbout series, which are programs that take place over the lunch hour. These programs are very informal -- presenters approach the program as a conversation about a topic of interest to them and to the community. 

The programs are a fantastic networking and learning opportunity. They are free to members and are $20 for non-members.
