April 7 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

WHEN:  Saturday April 7, 2018
TIME:  1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

After receiving mediation training, many mediators opt for the most known and traditional path of mediating litigated cases. While there are many benefits to this route, mediators that are not part of the large panel providers often find it difficult to get information about the quality of their mediation practice to potential consumers of mediation services.  Therefore, their skills may go underutilized, which is a loss for the community.  The good news is that there are many non-traditional and unexplored career paths for mediators that would put those skills to use and are very fulfilling and rewarding for the mediators that choose to pursue them.

Join us on Saturday, April 7, 2018 from 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM at USC Gould School Of Law and learn how private companies and public institutions are realizing that mediation is a very cost-and time effective alternative for resolving internal disputes. As a result, there is an emerging demand for people with mediation skills and training who are familiar with conflict resolution strategies and negotiation principles. Immediate Past SCMA President Jason Harper leads a panel of mediators who have successfully pursued alternative careers and want to share these pathways with you.  Learn how you can incorporate your mediation skills into non-traditional mediation careers. Sign up today!

Color Coding

All community events are shown on the calendar in blue, while all events that are for SCMA members only are shown on the calendar in yellow. This lets people see at a glance what type of event they are able to attend.

Narrow Your Results

At the top of the page there is a section that says “Narrow Your Results”.  This area has drop down menus with checkboxes next to each item. Go through each menu section and click any or all of the items that match what type of event you’re looking for. Then click the button that says “Submit” to view your filtered results on the calendar below.

Change Calendar View

On the top right side of the calendar there are two fields – one says ‘Events In” and has a field where you can select which month to view. Next to that is a field that says “View As”. The default setting is “month”, so you can view the events like a regular calendar. If you prefer, though, you can opt to view the events in a list instead. Or, click “map” to view a map that highlights where each event is located. Finally, you can view as “photo” to see all a list of the event titles and their associated images.
