Membership Update – July 2020

Welcome to our newest members


We had a 24% increase in new members over the past three months compared to 2019.  We continue to offer supervision and discussion style professional development activities rather than microphone off lecture sytle webinars. Where there are good quality webinars available we are happy to share that information out to our members via the Mediation Institute events calendar.

Interact Online

Two of the biggest problems that mediators identify are:

  1. Gaining experience following accreditation
  2. Maintaining NMAS accreditation if they are doing other work and not mediation work ( 25 hours minimum are required every 2 years)

Mediation Institute aims to help our members to overcome these problems as part of establishing an accessible, affordable dispute resolution services. 

The Interact Online Program will provide opportunities for new mediators to develop your skills and for experienced mediators to pick up extra contract work.
