The Southern California Mediation Association (SCMA) continues to provide training, skill-building, professional development, public outreach, networking, and charitable opportunities for its membership and the mediation community. To further these goals, the SCMA produced the inaugural Family Mediation Institute last year. In 2019 the SCMA is again proud to present the Family Mediation Institute to be held in Orange County on Friday, June 7th and Saturday, June 8th at the Doubletree Hotel in Santa Ana. Due to the enthusiastic response last year, this years’ institute will be held at a larger venue that will comfortably accommodate more attendees and exhibitors. In addition, the 2019 two-day event will be expanded to include additional workshops and an innovative program that will allow attendees to become part of a live recorded podcast.
