Fall Conference

The 2022 WMA Fall Conference “Mediation Ethics: Is Trust the Bridge We Use to Cross the Cultural Divide?” 


Thursday, November 3rd from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (PDT) on ZOOM.

Additional time for networking and socializing from 3:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. (PDT) with a virtual BYOB cocktail party!

This year’s WMA Fall Conference brings into focus two concepts – the current thinking about ethics in mediation in our community as well as at the global level. And, because mediation does not occur in a vacuum, our speakers will also explore how ethics in mediation intersects with diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).

WMA is applying for approval of at least 4 CLE credits from the Washington State Bar Association under the category of “Ethics” and/or “Professional Development.”  Attendance at the Conference can also be applied to support your WMA certification application.

This is the Best Conference You Can Imagine!

About the Annual WMA Fall Conference

The annual WMA Fall Conference creates the forum for on-going conversation and dialog about conflict resolution trends, practices, and futures and provides the opportunity for practitioners to develop and maintain professional relationships.

The conference format will blend sessions that are pre-planned  with sessions proposed at the conference (a modified unconference format). Session conveners are encouraged to emphasize discussions engaging the participants. Any participant may elect to convene a session on a relevant topic.

CLE credits are available for the morning sessions. WMA CERTIFICATION requirements including those for diversity and ethics can be met by attending sessions.
