SCMA has created various Professional Development Groups to provide peer support, peer review and case analysis, to analyze and study ongoing developments in the laws surrounding mediation, as well as any other topics of interest to their members. Professional Development Groups typically meet once a month in the evenings for approximately two hours, throughout Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Santa Barbara, and San Diego Counties and have between 10 to 20 members. Professional Development Groups are free of charge to SCMA members and are currently held in:
- Desert/Palm Springs
- Orange County
- Pasadena/San Gabriel Valley
- San Diego
- San Fernando Valley
- Santa Barbara
- South Bay
- West Los Angeles (Santa Monica)
Watch for meeting announcements for each area on the SCMA Calendar.

Non-members may attend a total of two free SCMA programs (Professional Development Groups or Professional Development Seminars) to meet members and experience the high quality of our programs. And non-members can still attend all fee-paid programs by registering at the non-member rate. Check the schedule of meetings on the calendar.
