Young ICCA recently announced the appointment of three new office holders to the organization’s Mentoring and Events initiatives. Eric Z. Chang and Gloria Alvarez will lead the Young ICCA Mentoring Programme, while Prince-Alex Iwu will be the new Young ICCA Events Coordinator.
Young ICCA is the young practitioners branch of the International Council for Commercial Arbitration (“ICCA”). ICCA is the leading worldwide nongovernmental organization (with official status as NGO accredited by the United Nations) devoted to promoting the use and improving the processes of arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. It is the largest network of international arbitration practitioners in the world.
As a Coordinator for the Mentorship Programme, Eric will help connect young practitioners with more senior members of ICCA who are some of the most respected arbitration professionals in the world.
The Mentorship Programme represents a continuation of Eric’s involvement in and contribution to Young ICCA and ICCA. Previously, Eric Z. Chang co-sponsored and moderated the Young ICCA Conference in Los Angeles, which focused on the current legislative reforms to international arbitration in California and how to develop a practice there. In April 2018, Eric participated at the biennial ICCA Congress held in Sydney, Australia, as a panelist at a Young ICCA event.
