Reserve November 4-5
The Oregon Mediation Association’s 30th Annual Conference will be here soon, and it will be something really special. New workshop formats, short informative presentations, panel discussion, and other format treats await you. The Annual Members' Meeting will have a new, interactive format so you can weigh in on OMA's future direction. And of course, the Auction and other FUNdraising activities will abound.
Visit the Conference's home page for more details, and for information on how you can become a Conference Sponsor.
The OMA Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are reviving in earnest!
While the Workplace Mediation SIG has been thriving, the Elder Mediation, Family Mediation, and Neuroscience SIGs have been dormant. This is surprising, considering the high level of interest reflected on people's membership forms. OMA VP Sara Matarazzo has taken the lead in getting these SIGs moving again by updating the Google Groups distribution lists and sending out initial messages. But she needs people to step forward to maintain those lists and to periodically send "let's keep talking" messages. If you can spare an hour a month doing that, please drop us an email at OMA@OMediate.org! Remember, without participation, SIGs simply won't work.

We had a great response to our "reminder" messages. Enjoy the discounts, opportunity for learning, the sense of community, and -- very soon -- the brand new website and membership management system!
