Welcome to this special issue of
ACResolution Magazine, based on ACR’s
“New Voices - Emerging Professionals”
Initiative. This Initiative was the result of
the vision and dedicated work of Susan
Terry, whose article outlines its evolution,
culminating at Conference 2014 with presentations by seven students, recent graduates, or newcomers to our field who are
the authors included in this issue. For me,
these seven authors represent the future of
our profession. I am sure after reading their
articles, as well as Marisa Shepard’s inspiring article about the ACR student initiative,
you will agree that the future of conflict
resolution and ACR is in good hands.
As I near the end of my career, I
am confident that ACR and all the differing
forms of conflict resolution it embraces,
will continue to grow, flourish and prosper.
Thanks to everyone who works so hard for
ACR, including our Board members, Executive Director, Section and Chapter leadership and every member who so unselfishly
volunteers time to ACR. I also want to
thank Bill Stempel and Cindy Alm for their
work as co-editors of ACResolution Magazine. On behalf of ACR, thanks to all of you
who give so freely and generously of your
time to ACR. Enjoy your read!
Together in the spirit of ACR,
Nancy Flatters, President
The photographs will typically stand on
their own rather than illustrating articles.
They can be on any subject—flowers,
wildlife, portraits (as long as you have the
subject’s permission), travel scenes, and
whatever else your camera captures—and
they don’t have to have anything to do
with conflict resolution. Space allowing,
we’ll select a few images for each issue
(preferably ones that haven’t been published previously) and include them, with a
credit to the photographer.
For more information on image quality, publication rights,
and other matters, email email@example.com. Please include
“ACResolution Magazine Photography” in the subject line.
Are you a photographer?
We’re looking for interesting and appealing
photographs by ACR members that we can publish
from time to time in ACResolution Magazine.
