Fresno, Ca (PRWEB) January 01, 2012
Douglas E. Noll has been selected to be the 2012 President of the California Dispute Resolution Council (CDRC). The California Dispute Resolution Council is the primary voice for peacemaking professionals and community practitioners in California.
“Because CDRC oversees the Alternative Dispute Resolution, which dominates the resolution of California lawsuits, many special interests want to limit it, expand, change, or gain exemptions, depending upon their perceived best interests. CDRC has a reputation for integrity, honesty, and knowledge, and its opinion is heard and support sought by legislators. The CDRC is also influential in national trends and policy making involving Alternative Dispute Resolution,” Noll explains.
“It is an honor to be selected to preside over this council for the year, and is part of my ongoing mission to present peacemaking options in all areas of conflict, statewide, nationally, and internationally as a consultant,” Noll announces.
As a peacemaker, professional mediator and author of Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts (Prometheus, 2011), Noll’s skills in mediation and arbitration to solve complex and difficult conflicts will be valuable to this position for influencing policy making involving Alternative Dispute Resolution issues.
The California Dispute Resolution Council tracks legislation that is ill-advised or impractical. CDRC makes sure that Californians can resolve their disputes in the way they choose, rather than have their choices limited by the desires of special interests.
“With the likelihood of reduced funding for the courts in 2012, the Alternative dispute Resolution will become more important as a means of the people to resolve disputes fairly, efficiently, and satisfactorily. CDRC will remain the Alternative Dispute Resolution watchdog to see that Californians can resolve their disputes in the way they choose, rather than have their choices limited by the desires of special interests,” Noll explains.
