The Ghana National Association of ADR Practitioners (GNAAP) is set to hold its national Mandatory Continuous Professional Development Workshop (MCPDW) aimed at enhancing the expertise of ADR practitioners in Ghana.
The MCPDW, slated for December 15 and 16, at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Millennium City, also provides a platform for ADR practitioners in the country to share experiences and ideas for enhanced professional practice.
Being held in collaboration with the Institute of Paralegal Training and Leadership Studies (IPLS), the meeting offers the opportunity for ADR practitioners to discuss and fashion out solutions to emerging challenges in the profession.
Dozens of ADR practitioners, including members of GNAAP, are expected to attend the professional training event which would, among other things, assess some ADR cases across the globe.
Isaac Nana Asare, Administrator of GNAAP, told ADR Daily that more than 400 ADR practitioners are expected to participate in the capacity building and networking workshop.
According to him, the objective of the workshop falls in line with the policy of the GNAAP towards the promotion of the ADR profession in Ghana.
