This year’s conference will offer full MCLE credit for participants and presenters, and will have varied programming to accommodate the unique interests of the mediation community. While we are looking for proposals in all areas, our conferences traditionally include collaborative law (focusing on family law practice), world-view/community mediation, the business and marketing of mediation, as well as advanced “practicum” training.
In keeping with our theme, “Mediation in the Real World: New Thinking, New Practices,” we welcome unique, cutting edge proposals with outside-the-box and/or interactive, presentations, as well as those which may be more traditional, theory-based or practice-oriented. We are asking that proposals focus on the learning outcomes and skills that participants attending the presentation will be able to utilize. We encourage workshops that focus on different forums, career opportunities, and emerging markets for mediators, and while proposals likely to generate broad interest and appeal will be accepted, we also welcome more narrowly-tailored ideas.
Proposals must be submitted on or before July 21, 2017, and we expect to notify panel organizers by August 11, 2017 if they have been selected to present at the conference.
