On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Washington Mediation Association and all of our members, welcome to the WMA website! We are the premier network of mediation providers in the state and the foremost promoter of mediation. Our mission is to advance the use of mediation as an effective form of dispute resolution and to serve as the hub for all that is mediation related in the State of Washington. Smart consumers know that confidentiality, maintaining control of outcomes and feeling a sense of fairness throughout the mediation process contributes to the probability of finding answers to disputes, preserving relationships, empowering both parties and building empathy.
