Membership Guidelines


Individuals are eligible for this membership category if they are active volunteer conflict resolution practitioners in organizations providing conflict resolution services in their community to people and entities that cannot afford to pay for them; and, if these individuals also provide conflict resolution services for a fee, then more than 50% of all their conflict resolution services are provided without compensation. This is ACR’s way of supporting the work of community-based programs and recognizing the work of volunteer conflict resolution practitioners. To be eligible for this membership level, your membership application must be submitted with the Community Volunteer Member Application completed by your Program Director.
