On Thursday, October 14, 2021, the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Section of Dispute Resolution Ombuds Committee is hosting the 4th annual celebration of a profession that has existed for centuries yet remains relatively unknown: ombuds/ombudsman. This year’s theme is “Ombuds: Exploring Options to Resolve Conflict Together.”
Nora Duncan, AARP CT State Director & Mairead Painter, CT Long Term Care Ombudsman will be featured speakers and as a result, you are invited to attend at no cost (usually $50), courtesy of the ABA Dispute Resolution Ombuds Committee. The event will feature informative fireside chats with ombuds/ombudsman and leaders from the technology, immigration, K-12 education, and long-term care sectors discussing the value of ombuds/ombudsman programs. They will share their unique perspectives about the operations and benefits of their programs.
You may use code CT21 at registration if you are interested in attending. The direct link to register for the virtual event is https://ambar.org/ombuds2021. You will not get to enter the code until the very end, where it is applied & the cost zeros out. For more information about ombuds/ombudsman and Ombuds Day, please visit OmbudsDay.com.
