About Utah Council on Conflict Resolution

What is UCCR?

The Utah Council on Conflict Resolution (UCCR) is a statewide umbrella organization for all persons interested in enhancing the network of professionals performing or promoting conflict resolution in the State of Utah. The UCCR is committed to serving the community by strengthening the professionalism and integrity of the practice of conflict resolution in Utah. This will be conducted through education and participating in related public policymaking.

What services does UCCR provide?

UCCR is first and foremost a membership organization. We are supportive and loyal to our membership.  We have an updated website directory to include a list of all members and their professions. We include updated resources on our website for ADR practitioners and organizations around the state to help us get better connected and to better serve our clients.

Further, each year, we continue to host the annual UCCR Symposium which gathers local practitioners, national and international experts to discuss the recent developments in dispute resolution and to build our skills as professionals.

Who is eligible for membership?

UCCR membership is available to anyone interested in dispute resolution.  The current membership includes many professions including attorneys, retired judges, educators, human resource providers, mediators, and arbitrators.

What is the governing body of UCCR?

UCCR’s governing body is a board of trustees. Board members include representatives from many areas of dispute resolution practice as well as organizations responsible for providing dispute resolution services. For specifics see UCCR Board of Directors and Leadership Committee.
