Leadership and service are based upon an applicant’s contributions to the collaborative community over the course of his/her career prior to application. It is not possible to quantify this requirement. The Credentialing Committee is looking for significant service, dedication and leadership by the applicant, which in most instances will require leadership and service in more than one activity.
Leadership and significant service improves the quality of the collaborative community, whether it be on a local, state, national or international level and may include:
- Committee member or chairman of local or statewide practice group or collaborative organization;
- Trustee of CDT, IACP or a local collaborative organization;
- Leadership role in the Collaborative Section of a local or state bar organization;
- Author of blog, newsletter, book or other publication on the subject of collaborative divorce;
- Trainer or speaker at a conference, training, meeting or workshop concerning the collaborative divorce process;
- Mentor in the CDT Mentoring Program; and/or
- Course instructor on collaborative divorce for a graduate or paralegal program.
