ACR-GNY promotes learning and dialogue within the ADR community. This Commercial & Employment Practice Group has been meeting since 2019 and typically meets the 4th Monday of every month from 6pm to 7:15pm on Zoom. The Practice Group is a confidential space where mediators can come together to share puzzling moments and give each other honest feedback.

April's guest facilitator will be Rebecca Price, Director of the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Program at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
