Conference Update

Thanks to all who submitted proposals for the 2018 Fall Conference. We had 30% more proposals than last year and an excellent range of workshops! The Conference Committee has been busy reviewing the proposals and creating a draft schedule. Stay tuned for exciting details coming later this month, including registration.



The Fall Newsletter is Coming and We Need Your Help!

The fall newsletter will be hitting member mailboxes this October, and we need a name! We received over a dozen suggested names, narrowed it down to four, and now we need your vote to help us choose the final name. Click here to vote. 

Also, thank you to all who have submitted content already! We have received several excellent articles already. Our goal is to have a wide variety of content from OMA news, to information that can help you in your mediation work, to stories of interest about members and mediation and dispute resolution work going on in Oregon. Have something you’d like to share? Send notes, images, or articles up to two pages in length to OMA@ORMediation.org. Content Deadline is September 1st.
