Conference Information

VMN 2015 Summer Mini Conference

Welcome to the Virginia Mediation Network’s regional meetings/workshops for Summer 2015. This 2-hour training is entitled “Unbelievable Stories about Avoiding, Breaking and Surviving Impasse”. Like the March regional meetings, the session will involve a 90-minute original video of presenters. And, based on feedback from the March meetings, the live discussion with the site host will be interspersed throughout the video presentation. There will also be social/networking time at each site.

     VMN Immediate Past President Jennifer Phillips will facilitate the discussion along with panelists and VMN members Walter (Skip) Mertz and Paula Young, Esq. and attorney Jeffrey Molenda, Esq. Panel members will examine ways to avoid impasse and look at techniques to break impasse when it does occur. There will also be a discussion about how to survive impasse looking at what happens from a court/litigation perspective when participants remain in impasse. VMN President Mone’ Ardura will again provide the opening remarks.

     The workshop has been approved by Dispute Resolution Services for 2.0 hours of General/Family Continuing Mediator Education credits.

     Pre-registration is required. The cost of the workshop will be $10 for VMN members and $60 for non-members.After that time the cost will be $20 for VMN members and $80 for non-members.
