Conflict Resolution Month 2012 is off to a fantastic start!!
The initial momentum captured the Senate and House on March 26, 2012 with the passage of Senate Joint Resolution 12-026!! Sponsors: Senator Linda Newell, SD 26 and Representative Robert Gardner, HD 21.
That momentum will now travel throughout the State as we engage citizens in every community to think CONFLICT RESOLUTION!! To this end, various communities and organizations will be sponsoring events in October that generate awareness of the resolution of conflict in a non-confrontational & meaningful fashion.
We have many volunteers that have obtained Conflict Resolution Proclamations in their municipality, county, college, high school, etc. in the past. Each year we add to this burgeoning list of supporters.
Is YOUR Community supporting Conflict Resolution Month? Would you be willing to approach your County Commissioner, City Council Member, Mayor, College Dean, etc. and ask them to support October as Conflict Resolution Month?
For more information you can visit the web site at: http://www.conflictresolutionmonth.org . Conflict Resolution Month is also on FaceBook – Become a Friend! You can contact Rita Hyland at Rita@RitaHylandConsulting.com for further details and to volunteer. We stand ready to assist you in your endeavor. We can provide you with templates and sample Proclamations for your respective municipality, county or college.
Thank you and let’s make this year a Banner Year for Conflict Resolution Month!!
