“IACP Forums are an amazing experience. I have learned practical skills that I brought home and now use every day. Equally important, I feel like I found “my people” when went to the Forum! I was so energized to be part of an international group of peacemakers making lives better everywhere.”
– IACP Incoming President, Brian Galbraith, Collaborative Lawyer from Ontario, Canada

“As a financial neutral, I find there are few others in my profession working with family law matters, and fewer doing Collaborative work. By attending Forum, I connect with financial professionals, nationally and internationally, doing this same work, and I cultivate a network of folks I can call when I need to process a scenario or have a technical challenge I want to discuss with a colleague.”
– IACP Incoming Treasurer, Cheryl Panther, Collaborative Financial Professional & Mediator from Tennessee, USA

“I consider attending my first Forum as possibly the biggest game-changing thing I have done in my career. I came to my first Forum feeling discouraged and frustrated about whether Collaborative Process would ever really happen for my own practice and for New Zealand! I left my infant son, took the long flight to San Antonio, and allowed myself to completely take in everything Forum had to offer me. My only regret? That I hadn’t taken this step much, much sooner! I came away from that Forum buoyed and enthused by the sheer energy that is unique to this community.”
– IACP Incoming Board Member, Selina Trigg, Collaborative Lawyer & Mediator from Christchurch, New Zealand

“Forum is unlike any other conference I have ever attended. My relationships with colleagues around the world are deep and meaningful and the conversations rich with learning for me, both personally and professionally.”
– IACP Board Member, Julia McAninch, Collaborative Mental Health Professional & Mediator from Tennessee, USA
