AACR’s annual meeting will be held on Saturday, May 11th at 9:30 a.m. in the Lecture Theater at the University of Advancing Technology. Among other things, an election of AACR’s 2019-2020 Officers and Directors will be conducted. The general meeting will be followed by a presentation by Gabriel Goltz on implicit bias. His informative talk will explore the unconscious attribution of specific qualities to individuals or social groups, a subject critical to those of us striving for objectivity in dispute resolution. There is no charge to attend the meeting or presentation.
The lecture is COJET eligible, and CLE certificates are available for $10.
