For Newcomers To Collaborative Practice Or First-Time Forum Attendees:

  • I am not trained in Collaborative Practice; can I still attend Forum? Whether you're looking for your first Collaborative Practice Training or would benefit from a refresher, register now to attend IACP's Introductory Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice Training which will take place on Thursday, October 27, 2022 and Friday, October 28, 2022, on-site at Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center before the start of IACP's 2022 Annual Networking & Educational Forum.  After completing your basic training, we highly recommend that you ALSO register and stay with us in Orlando for our 2022 Forum until October 30. Attending Forum as a newcomer to Collaborative Practice will enable YOU to start your Collaborative journey having already built important networks, participated in the latest dialogues & skills building, and gained the visibility YOU need to put your best foot forward as a Collaborative Professional. Please note, our 2022 Forum Introductory Interdisciplinary Collaborative Practice Training and 2022 Annual Forum are two separate events and require two separate registrations to attend both events.
  • What if I’m new to the community and don’t know anyone at Forum?  At IACP, we are committed to creating inclusive and accessible spaces for new, developing, and experienced Collaborative and family dispute professionals to converge, converse, and learn from one another. During IACP’s in-person 2022 Forum, IACP’S Membership and Outreach Committee will also host a Welcome Inn event. This interactive event enables attendees to meet other Collaborative colleagues, build their network, discuss Collaborative Practice, ask questions, and learn how to make the most of IACP Membership, which will elevate your Collaborative career! Throughout Forum’s dynamic workshops and networking events, you are bound to meet new people. Ask any experienced Forum attendee, as a Collaborative community we work hard, and we play hard! This is a welcoming community, so introduce yourself to someone new, join a conversation or a table, and leave with life-long friends. While Forum offers many unique opportunities to meet like-minded professionals during our educational offerings, we also make time for other socializing and community building during downtime between events, at welcome receptions, around our shared hotel, and most famously, at our Saturday night party!
