Professional Biography The Public Disputes Program, established in 1987 by Andrew M. Sachs, helps groups in the public, private and non-profit sectors to resolve conflicts and solve difficult problems by providing meeting facilitation, multiparty mediation, collaborative process design, and training and education in multiparty conflict resolution.  Operating from the Dispute Settlement Center, Inc., an independent, community-based, not-for-profit organization founded in 1978, the Program’s primary focus is on community and local government engagement, including citizen participation in local land use planning; cross jurisdiction concerns among municipalities, counties and school districts; and consultations with federal/state/regional agencies on truly effective processes for interacting collaboratively on the local levels.  Also provides training to build the capacity of local groups to participate effectively in collaborative/consultative processes.
