  1. The event took place last night and was well received. Thank you, John, panelists, and sponsors. Panelists shared their paths to becoming ombudsman, their experiences in the field, and practical advice for aspiring ombuds.

    This was a welcome event for those of us who share the passion but do not hold Ombuds positions.
