North Carolina State University Ombuds Recaps 2016 IOA Conference

On his blog, Roy Baroff, the Faculty Ombuds at NC State, recounts his experience at the International Ombudsman Association's annual conference in Seattle.  He notes that Bernie Mayer's keynote speech gave him some ideas to incorporate into his work.  

Baroff also wrote about his own conference session:
Additionally, my session on “Opening an Ombuds Office – the NC State Faculty Ombuds Office” came as one of the opening concurrent sessions and was well attended with about 30 in number. Most had just finished three days of the IOA Foundations course and had many nuts-and-bolts questions about the workings of an ombuds office. My goal was to share the NC State Faculty Ombuds Office from start to its current status so that participants could take home ideas for their own offices. Judging by the session questions and comments, I’ll deem the program a success!
