The WMA Fall Conference

The Washington Mediation Association Fall Conference is just around the corner, on Tuesday, October 25th. For the past several years, mediators from a variety of government programs (as well as solo mediators) have had a significant presence at the conference, and hope that many of you can make it this year.

The WMA has another great program this year that is centered around the theme of Next Steps in Conflict Engagement.  In the morning, six speakers are lined up to discuss extending mediation and incorporating other conflict resolution methods in the practice of mediation.  For those that are Washington State Bar members, the morning sessions have been approved for 2.5 CLE credits.  In the afternoon, there are UnConference sessions, where participants propose topics of learning and discussion, and then attend discussions on the topics of most use and interest to them. This mixed format has worked very well for the WMA Fall Conference in the past, and it should be a great experience for all of the participants.
