SCMA Professional Development Groups (PDG’s) are member-led peer groups located throughout Southern California. PDG’s connect local SCMA members for the purpose of sharing, supporting, and staying up to date with current and ongoing developments in the mediation field.
Each PDG meets at a different time and place, typically once a month. SCMA members are encouraged to join their local PDG group but are welcome to attend any of the planned PDG meetings in other areas. Professional Development Groups are free of charge to SCMA members and are currently held in:
- Downtown Los Angeles
- Long Beach
- Orange County
- Pasadena/San Gabriel Valley
- San Diego
- San Fernando Valley
- South Bay
- West Los Angeles, Santa Monica
Note Due to the recent pandemic situation the PDG groups have ceased to hold any in-person sessions. Those PDGs that are continuing to meet are holding their sessions via the zoom meeting platform.
Upcoming PDG Events
Watch for meeting announcements for each area on the SCMA Calendar or from emails that are sent out to all SCMA members on the listserv.
