Mediation Institute Membership Update May June 2022

Lots of interesting PD opportunities this month.

We’re working on getting greater interaction between members and think that hosting networking events may help with that. Scroll down to see all the events that are on in June that you can engage in.

The easiest way to see what is on and RSVP is to do it through the Mi Mediator Network – https://network.mediationinstitute.edu.au/events

In-Real-Life Networking

Mediation Institute established to fill a need for mediators and those who want to become mediators to train and participate in professional development without the need to travel or disrupt their lives while developing and deepening their skills.  Prior to COVID we held infrequent social gatherings and some in person training sessions.

That said there are some opportunities coming up and the Mi Mediator Network can provide a tool to help members of the network to catch up.  You can create an event to catch up with other members in a location near you.  Get in touch if you need help with how to do this.

Those attending the State of Family Law Conference being hosted by Smokeball and FamilyProperty may find that an opportunity to catch up.

I’m going to be presenting at the Melbourne Conference and also attending the Australian Institute of Family Studies Conference in Melbourne.  If you’re also attending either of those events it would be great to catch up in person.

I hope to see you soon,

Joanne Law
