Join your committee for 2018

Member group committees are a vital thread in the fabric of Resolution Institute.

If you wish to express your interest in joining a committee, please complete an application form by the closing date. Should the committee receive more expressions of interest than positions are available on the committee, an election will be held. Find out more about annual meetings here http://www.resolution.institute/events/category/networking

Resolution Institute members are diverse in

  • their needs
  • their particular fields of DR and the processes in which they practice
  • the time they commit to DR (compared with other professional or lifestyle areas) and
  • the places where they live and work including geographical location

Resolution Institute is therefore similarly diverse. To respond to diversity the Board encourages groups of members to establish Chapters, Special Interest Groups, practice and networking groups and online communities, in ways that meet their needs most appropriately.

Each member group committee operates within a framework outlined by the Board in the Member Group handbook here http://www.resolution.institute/documents/item/1305
