We are happy to announce that registration is now open for the October 18 session of our popular Dispute Resolution Skills for FOIA Professionals training. The free day-long session will be at the National Archives in downtown Washington, DC, location.
During our training sessions, we help FOIA professionals develop a working knowledge of Alternative Dispute Resolution techniques, learn how working with OGIS can help resolve disputes that the agency is unable to resolve, practice active listening and good communication, and develop strategies for working with difficult people. These skills help attendees improve their interactions with FOIA requesters and colleagues within their agencies.
Session participants regularly give the program high marks, and seats fill up quickly. To reserve your seat, please register on Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dispute-resolution-skills-training-session-october-18-2016-tickets-27754922721.
