Description

Lifetime Achievement Gala: A Salute to Leaders in the Field of Conflict Resolution

Sunday, Septermber 17, 2017 at The Junior League of Houston

The Association for Conflict Resolution Houston (ACRH) Chapter, a 501c3 since 2001, is holding its inaugural benefit to raise funds for the professional commitment of local mediators to initiate Peer Mediation programs within schools in the Harris County and contiguous counties.

These conflict solution programs will teach junior and senior high school students how to have a better understanding of cultural diversity, to use communication skills that offer a better understanding of how to stop bullying and promote tolerance, and to learn how to use conflict management skills to understand and negotiate the dynamics of finding sustainable, peaceful solutions. These Peer Mediation programs will be implemented through classroom and online formats, starting in January 2018.

Our Lifetime Achievement Award Gala and Celebration will be held on Sunday, September 17th, at the Junior League of Houston. Our keynote speaker at the dinner will be Dr. Joe Folger, the world-renowned theorist in Transformative Mediation and co-author of The Promise of Mediation. The evening will also recognize local leaders in the field of conflict resolution.

To make this a very special evening that embraces and spotlights the conflict management community, we are looking for companies who will buy tables for $1,500, as community supporters, and bring their associates to lead the tribute to our community of professional and future peacemakers. To purchase a table, please contact the sponsorship committee at info@acrhouston.org

Our Association for Conflict Resolution Houston Chapter is the local professional chapter of the international organization for all conflict analysis and resolution specialists worldwide. ACRH is dedicated to making a difference in the Houston community and beyond through this Peer Mediation program that has been so successful and welcomed in other communities across the country.

The evening will include a welcome reception from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm with our honorees and keynote speakers, followed by dinner and presentation from our keynote speaker.
