About Mediation Settlement Day


Mediation Settlement Day (MSD) is a free annual event hosted by ACR-GNY that celebrates the importance and value of conflict resolution for the greater New York community. 


Each year a theme is selected for MSD activities. ACR-GNY convenes members of the conflict resolution community for a conversation on the selected topic and to celebrate the new Frontline Champion Award honoree/s.


About the Frontline Champion Award


The ACR-GNY’s Frontline Champion award recognizes individuals who have made a meaningful impact on the field of mediation or helped others through their commitment to the effective practice of mediation. Frontline Champion honorees are named and celebrated at each year's Mediation Settlement Day event.
