Apply to join a committee

Help shape our work - the Dispute Resolution Committee is recruiting.

Why apply?

Resolution’s success is the result of work and time provided by members for members. Your contribution is vital to the work of Resolution and has a direct impact on the professional lives of your colleagues, peers and the families you work with.

Becoming a member of a Resolution committee is a rewarding way to share your knowledge, expertise and talent with Resolution’s members.

What is the Dispute Resolution Committee?

The Dispute Resolution (DR) committee works across all areas of family dispute resolution, leading innovation in process and practice.  The committee aims to:

  • Facilitate the practice of DR through training, standards, best practice, support for practitioners, and publications.
  • Promote all forms of DR to the Resolution membership, the public, and stakeholders across the sector.
  • Influence policy across the sector, ensuring it is user-led and responsive to member and client needs.
  • Ensure its membership and work reflects the diversity of the Resolution membership.
  • Develop the practices and process of DR to best suit clients in an evolving family practice world.

Who can apply?

We encourage applications to join the DR Committee from any member or associate member of Resolution.  We would like to improve the diversity of the Committee and would particularly welcome applications from members of diverse racial backgrounds, members with disabilities and YRes members.

We are keen to welcome more financial and therapeutic professionals and would also welcome applications from those interested in DR who have not yet become qualified or experienced in it.

What’s involved?

The DR Committee meets six times a year, at the moment online; opportunities to meet face to face in the future will be discussed and agreed in due course.  Making an active contribution is important, preparation before meetings is usually required, as is some work to complete tasks between meetings.

How to apply

Please complete the application form below by 4th June and, at the same time, complete our anonymous diversity survey. The diversity survey is entirely optional and separate to your application and will be used to monitor whether we are attracting a diverse range of applicants. It can’t and won’t be used to select Committee members.
