A WORD FROM MARY
What a month this is!!! All of the Conflict Resolution Month in Colorado activities I have attended have been informative and well worth the time and effort!! I have learned a great deal this month.  Huge thanks to everyone who created these opportunities!!
  
It is helpful at this point if event hosts send in the number of attendees for each of your activities so we can complete our 2015 Conflict Resolution Month in Colorado Summary. Send to mzinn@zinnmediation.com. Thanks to those who have already sent in this information.
  
I hope to see you as we review, reflect and celebrate together at the Synergizers Meeting on November 4....Remember to submit your lunch order. (Link to submit at bottom of newsletter) And... yes, there will be cake!!
