Dear Friends and Colleagues:
AFCC (Association of Family and Conciliation Courts), Minnesota Chapter is pleased to announce a great opportunity to enrich and expand your practice and network with other professionals in the family law courts community. We've had exceptional participation in our sponsorship program for the past FOUR YEARS, and we hope to continue this established tradition in 2016-2017. We invite you to join us in furthering the mission of AFCC MN, while also publicizing your practice, business, or organization.
The mission of the AFCC MN chapter, which is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific, and educational purposes, is:
- To provide an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas and the development of procedures to assist families in conflict;
- To encourage the development of courts and court procedures emphasizing collaborative methods of dispute resolution;
- To develop and improve the provision of services that aid in the resolution of family dispute; and
- To protect the interests of children in relation to all aspects of family law, child protection proceedings, and all other legal proceedings affecting children.
We encourage you to join us in our annual sponsorship campaign, designed to not only further the goals of AFCC MN, but to provide you with the opportunities to: expand and increase your practice or business, participate in continuing education/training with CLEs and CEUs, enhance your competency in family law systems and services, and network with leading legal, mental health, and dispute resolution practitioners, policymakers, and researchers.
THANK YOU for reading this letter! And thanks to all of our past and present sponsors. We hope you'll join us or renew your sponsorship in 2016.
Judy R. Sherwood, AFCC MN President
