Our 2018 WMA Fall Conference: Opening the Mediation Umbrella: Expanding and Redefining Our Practices, held in Tukwila on October 11th, was a resounding success, thanks to the many Sponsors, Speakers and the dedicated participants! Located at the Tukwila Community Center, the Fall Conference was a dynamic opportunity for learning, networking and collaboration. The morning Speakers: Rick Brady, Jamie Clausen, Astrid Aveledo and Roger Moss helped us to expand our perspectives about our mediation practices. In the afternoon, attendees shared with each other in roundtable discussions on topics important to the practice of mediation.<br />
