This is an exciting time for the SCMA as our membership reaches record highs and our programing and events continue to expand and are well attended. It is a good time to reflect on the history of our organization. Recently, at the Past President’s Breakfast in April, our SCMA former Presidents shared stories and remembrances of their time in office. This wonderful compilation of stories included many achievements and successes of the SCMA in promoting and supporting mediators in Southern California, but these were tempered by recollections of some challenges that the organization encountered along the way. This dialogue inspired our current President, Dr. Jack R. Goetz, Esq., to lead an initiative with the Communications Committee and key members of our community to draft a history of the SCMA featured in the “About SCMA” section of our website. The new section features the many layered story of the early days of SCMA’s creation to the present day.
