Statement on the Transition of the National Roster of Environmental Conflict Resolution Professionals
The Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation’s (Udall Foundation) John S. McCain III National Center for Environmental Conflict Resolution (National Center) has recently made the determination that future administration of the National Roster of Environmental Conflict Resolution Professionals (Roster) will need to occur outside of the auspices of the Udall Foundation. The Roster is a database of more than 300 highly qualified and experienced professionals who resolve environmental disputes and support collaborative solutions to complex public issues. It is an online tool available for public use currently administered by the National Center. Federal agencies, State and Local governments, Tribes, nonprofits, and the private sector use the Roster to locate professional mediators, facilitators, and conflict resolution service providers. While the National Center is saddened that its administration of the Roster will come to an end, staff members are proud of the work that has gone into it, including the efforts of the community of practitioners and the body of work reflected in it.
