How to Avoid Making a Disaster Out of a Disaster!

 

Melvin Rubin-1This program will examine the power of the individual consumer when confronted with local and regional disasters that directly affect themselves and their families.  The speaker will address not only what the individual should know, but also the power of the consumer as part of their community in creating a conflict resolution process that provides quick relief in order to rebuild the community, while also guaranteeing the due process rights of each individual involved in that disaster.  The program will also examine man-made situations, such as the recent mortgage foreclosure debacle, and insurance and real estate frauds on a large scale.  Lastly, this will be examined as a new frontier for the ADR professional to explore as an additional source of work, income and satisfaction.
