On 10 July 2021, while Taiwan was still under Level 3 Covid-19 alert, CIArb’s Taiwan Chapter held its Accelerated Route to Membership (ARM) course with all participants joining safely from the ease of their office or home. It was the first time that the Taiwan Chapter held a full online ARM course and, thanks to the well-planned logistics and strong IT support, the outcome of the course was no less satisfying than that conducted in-person.
The course was hosted in collaboration with the Chinese Arbitration Association, Taipei (CAA), National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University School of Law (NYCU LAW) and iADR®, and was well attended by 17 enthusiastic candidates from all corners of Taiwan. Glenn Haley C.Arb FCIArb (Course Director) gave his full support and assessed the candidates’ performance remotely from Hong Kong. He was joined by assessors from Taiwan, Dr. Helena Chen FCIArb (Convenor of the Taiwan Chapter) and Alison Chang FCIArb (former Head of the Taiwan Chapter YMG), and also from Australia, Dr. Winnie Ma FCIArb (former Convenor of the Taiwan Chapter).
Thanks also to Monica Wang FCIArb (Secretary-General of the Taiwan Chapter) for shadowing the course, and much appreciation also for the staff of NYCU LAW for making this course possible.
