Global and Local Partners assisted by finding appropriate speakers and participants, by ensuring that users and key leaders who use and pay for ADR services were invited to speak and/or attend the Series, by sending targeted mailings to their members to attend local events, and by encouraging participation and support by other local and regional stakeholders.Global Partners were recognised by the COG and listed on the GPC Series’ website, in mailings, and in the programmes of all local events, as well as on all final reports. Local Partners were recognised by LOCs and identified in local publications and materials, as approved by the LOC.
