The 2021 Washington Mediation Association Fall Conference: “Geography Unbounded”
As always, the WMA Fall Conference will be a dynamic opportunity to learn, network and collaborate with your fellow mediators. This year you can again attend from the comfort of your home, home office or workspace! Our morning panel of speakers will discuss what adaptations mediators have made and can make to work effectively in our new virtual environment and what to consider if you want to expand your business across state or international boundaries. You will also learn how to better use technology to expand and enhance your client sessions. Are there questions you wish you could ask an expert about Zoom and other platforms? An expert on our panel can answer your questions! In the afternoon, we will learn from each other in roundtable discussions about current issues and topics at the forefront of our profession.
