Ghana National Association of ADR Practitioners (GNAAP) will hold its 2018 Mandatory Continuing Professional Development Workshop (MCPDW) next month
The annual two-day workshop, which would be held from December 7 at the Credit Union Training Centre, Kasoa, Central Region, has the aim of advancing the professional development of mediators in the country.
It is in collaboration with the Institute of Paralegal Training and Leadership Studies (IPLS).
This year’s residential event is focused on continuous education on Case Lodgement, Consent to Mediate and Terms of Settlement Drafting.
In addition, the workshop would discuss new trends in the ADR industry, as well as fashion out measures to address emerging challenges to enhance mediation services.
Isaac Nana Asare, Administrator of GNAAP, told ADR Daily that the workshop, which is expected to be attended by dozens of ADR practitioners, provides a platform for ADR practitioners in the country to share experiences and ideas for enhanced professional practise.
According to him, it is a capacity building and networking workshop which falls in line with the policy of the GNAAP towards the promotion of the ADR profession in Ghana.
