2018 is coming up, and there are lots of ways that you can get involved to help make 2018 a great year for OMA!
The Standards and Practices Committee is recruiting OMA members who are interested in the improvement and education of mediator ethics and standards and practices. The main charges of the Standards and Practices Committee include reviewing and maintaining currency of the OMA Core Standards of Mediation Practice, the Ask OMA’r column, the OMA Mediator Complaint Process, presentations at the OMA annual conference, and engaging in statewide conversations such as mediator certification and proposed legislation.
While the time commitment is not significant, a strong candidate is a person who is motivated to improve the practice of mediation. We are seeking individuals from various practice areas who are committed to jumping into the committee’s work alongside experienced committee members. The primary task of 2018 is a review and update of the OMA Core Standards. The committee holds monthly telephonic meetings and the monthly time commitment is approximately 5 hours.
If you are interested in the advancement and education of mediator ethics and standards and practices or would like to know more about the committee’s work, please contact Lisa Amato, the committee convener at firstname.lastname@example.org.
