More than 400 Attendees, Presenters, Exhibitors and Sponsors made their way to sunny Downtown Los Angeles to attend the SCMA Annual Fall Conference on October 22-23, 2017 at the LA Hotel Downtown. The theme of the 2017 Conference was “Mediation in the Real World: New Thinking, New Practices.”
Our Friday Evening Reception Dinner kicked off with award presentations to Mary Culbert and Marco Turk. Which led us into a full day Saturday starting off with Keynote Speaker and 2017 Cloke-Millen Peacemaker of the Year Award Recipient, William Ury, cofounder of Harvard’s Program on Negotiation. Mr. Ury’s Keynote Speech can be found here (link).
The 2017 Conference covered many topics, such as cultural intelligence, peace dialogue training, non-traditional mediation jobs, cognitive biases and more.
The SCMA would like to again extend many thanks to our sponsors and exhibitors for aiding in the success of this year’s conference.
We hope to see you again in 2018 to be held on November 2-3, 2018 in Los Angeles
