More Ombuds News

Ombuds are definitely making strides in the news. According to this recent article, the city of Corvalis has decided to put an Ombuds back on payroll.

Sue Roni, a conflict management specialist, is the Ombuds for the city. She handles a range of complaints, including discrimination claims. Sue, who has a pretty impressive background including psychology, ethics and education, serves and educates her community about the role of the Ombuds.

What does this mean to you? The opportunities for the profession are growing. Keep your ears open. Better yet, why not propose something similar in your town?

Try. Fail. Learn. Grow!

I checked out the Ombuds association website after the teleconference last week. There are THREE opportunitites this year to get training at the conference.

I am going to try to make the one in October in Philadelphia.

Are there more training/educational opportunities available that would allow "certification" in this area?

Looking forward to learning!
