Membership in Collaborative Divorce Texas is crucial to a successful Collaborative Divorce Practice. It provides access to forms, training, education, shared marketing and critically, interaction and connection with like-minded professionals. Along with membership, CDT facilitates a sense of Community. Our statewide community is expansive but it is also extremely important to participate in the collaborative community at all levels. Becoming active in your collaborative practice group, local bar or professional association’s Collaborative Law Section (or initiating one if none exists), the State Bar of Texas Collaborative Law Section and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) affords you additional opportunity to expand your practice and to grow as a collaborative professional. Each such group is an opportunity to learn from others who are also passionate about Collaborative Divorce and to network with them. This networking results in the professionals making connections that will serve their individual practice and simultaneously help Collaborative Divorce become the preferred method of divorce in Texas.
CDT is one of 15 IACP Global Partners. IACP Global Partners is a world-wide group of collaborative organizations that have made a commitment to work collectively to leverage resources, spread the word, and find ways to make Collaborative Practice available around the globe. IACP Global Partners brings organizations together to foster the growth of the global Collaborative community. Individual IACP membership also helps in the goals of the Global Partners and in expanding members’ perspectives on Collaborative Law. Participation in the education and training offered by IACP bolsters the members’ collaborative knowledge, skills and creativity and helps to create connections with another strong Collaborative Community. As international, national, state and local collaborative organizations grow so does Collaborative Divorce.
