October is conflict resolution month in the state of Colorado. To create awareness and educate the public, two special events will be held.
First, a proclamation signed by Colorado Springs city council president Scott Hente declaring October Conflict Resolution month in Colorado Springs will be presented by Jan Martin, city council president pro tem on Monday, October 1, 2012. The ceremony is open to the public and will be held at the Russell Professional Building -- 105 East Vermijo Avenue -- in the fourth floor conference room at 4:00 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.
Next, the 7th annual Conflict Resolution Conference will be held on Thursday, October 18, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Colorado Technical University (CTU) campus - 4435 North Chestnut Street.
