Three Ombuds Organizations to Hold Joint Conference in April 2009
Three North American Ombuds groups -- The Association of Canadian College and University Ombudspersons, The Forum of Canadian Ombudsman, and The International Ombudsman Association -- will convene next Spring to celebrate the bicentennial of the Ombuds profession. The conference, "Evolution of the Ombudsman [1809-2009]: A Rich History, A Promising Future," will take place April 15-18, 2009, in Montreal. Sessions will encourage interdisciplinary dialog and sharing best practices. Potential presenters should note that the Joint Conference Planning Committee is accepting session proposals through Friday September 26, 2008. (FCO Conf Info; IOA Conf Info.)
