The International Academy of Collaborative Professionals Annual Forum is always an invigorating time for me. We teach, learn, grow and share ideas with like-minded and committed Collaborative professionals from around the world. This year we all gathered in Chicago, IL for the 20th Anniversary of this terrific event. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my time with IACP members from countries across the globe and am excited that in 2022, for the 22nd Annual Forum, the IACP will be coming to Orlando, FL. This will be a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our wonderful state and the talented professionals who call it home.  

My goal is to help make the 2022 IACP Forum the biggest yet and I encourage my colleagues to continue to educate themselves and grow as family law professionals. All of us should utilize the Collaborative Process and make it the go-to option for dispute resolution, especially in family matters.
