Greetings from John McCammon

We recently convened our 29th Annual Training Conference, during which our Neutrals enjoyed a full day of training and collegial networking. Guided by the theme “Breaking Impasse,” my esteemed colleagues Mark Rubin, Geetha Ravindra, and I led discussions on overcoming barriers to resolution. Together, we explored effective strategies and techniques to tackle these challenges head-on.

As we look to the future, we remain committed to refining our skills and techniques so that we can provide you with the very best in ADR services. 

Welcoming our Newest Neutrals
