Topic:  Dan Simon will lead a discussion on Transformative Mediation


Transformative Mediation:  Learn it and remember what you love about mediating.

Dan Simon claims that transformative mediation is the method most likely to lead to a durable settlement, as well as to provide a meaningful process for the parties.  In this hour Dan Simon will explain the philosophy which is fundamentally different from how we were all trained. He’ll explain the underlying theory, demonstrate the techniques, and lead a discussion about them.


See Dan’s website below
As always we will allow time for any other topics/issues you wish to share or get input from the group.
Parking option:  1) Parking in the 1500 building lot is hourly and a maximum of

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.
