Part of our mission is to provide a resource for Ombuds to use in broadening their networks, publishing articles and becoming more aware and involved in the diversity of activities occurring in the Ombuds and Dispute Resolution worlds as a whole. The ABA Ombuds Committee welcomes any ombuds wanting to learn about their projects to attend their monthly committee meetings once you join.
We welcome Classical, Executive, Organizational, Advocate, and other Ombuds in the Federal, State, Corporate, and Academic Sectors. Our ability to do this is because our work falls under the ABA category that allows for Group rates.
