Southern California Mediation Association Conference and Mentorship Program

The SCMA’s 30th Annual Conference will take place on November 2-3, 2018 at the the L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown in Los Angeles. This year’s conference theme is “Striving for Excellence: The Emergence of the Modern Mediator,” and the event will honor Avis Ridley-Thomas, who will receive the Cloke-Millen Award, and Professor Lisa Klerman, who will receive the Randolph Lowry Award. A broad diversity of workshops and programming that provide the latest and most cutting-edge thinking on how professional mediators can grow and develop their practice will be offered. More information may be found here.

The SCMA Mentorship Program is designed for new mediators who have some experience and training and who are serious about starting their mediation practice. You will be mentored by top tier practitioners on the steps and goals of starting your own mediation practice. Each class is designed to move you closer to the launch of your practice, so it is expected that you make the effort commensurate with the tasks necessary for launching your paid mediation practice.
