On Thursday, 10 October 2019, the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Dispute Resolution Section Ombuds Committee invites you to the celebration of the ombudsman profession.
The Ombudsman profession has existed for centuries yet remains relatively unknown and underutilized. Ombuds Day serves as an additional opportunity to educate and raise awareness among the public about the history and practices of the Ombudsman profession including the various models, the roles they play, the services they offer and the value provided.
Ombuds Day is an opportunity to celebrate and show pride in our growing and evolving profession. Ombuds Day on 10 October 2019 will be the second annual event. This year’s theme is “Ombuds: Unusual name. Important service”.
Interested in hosting your own Ombuds Day event or activity? Perhaps obtain a state or local Ombuds Day proclamation? Find materials, templates, inspiration and more in the Ombuds Day Toolkit.
