Strategic Action Plan Print

We are a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Our mission is to promote awareness and encourage use of mediation to resolve family conflicts. We believe that mediation should be considered as early in the process as possible, and that mediation can enable people to find peaceful, personal, and private solutions that most often save time, money, and stress.

Our vision is to focus on mediators, the courts, the public, and other professionals such as attorneys, mental health professionals, and community organizations, and we will:

  • Inform them about the benefits of mediation in the resolution of family conflicts
  • Provide continuing education and resources
  • Promote the highest standard of ethics in family mediation
  • Provide networking and other opportunities
  • Cooperate with other dispute resolution organizations to raise awareness of the benefits of mediation, cooperation, and collaboration processes.

Our key goals are to:

  • Serve as the primary resource for mediators practicing in the area of domestic relations, including providing assistance with continuing education, ethical standards, networking opportunities, and with building and maintaining practices.
  • Serve as a resource for courts and other organizations to incorporate mediation into the process of resolving domestic relations conflicts.
  • Serve as a resource for the public by offering information about mediation, the benefits of using mediation in resolving domestic relations conflicts, and access to qualified mediators.
  • Serve as a resource for others who interact with people who have domestic relations conflicts, including attorneys, mental health professionals, financial professionals, and community organizations, and provide them with information about mediation, the benefits of using mediation in resolving family conflicts, and access to qualified mediators.

We have initiatives in progress in each of these areas, and we welcome new members to participate with us in these efforts.
