You’re invited to participate in the Oregon Mediation Association’s 32nd Annual Conference. This year’s conference offers a broad scope of relevant, professional-level conflict resolution presentations and workshops in different field-oriented tracks, as well as the opportunity to meet and engage with practitioners in the field.

Whether you are a mediator, attorney, social worker, human resources professional, student, educator, ADR practitioner, counselor, or someone who is interested in conflict management and resolution, you’ll find multiple interesting and useful activities that will enrich your knowledge and sense of community.

This year, we are partnering with the University of Oregon School of Law and the Conflict and Resolution (CRES) Master’s Program. Along with providing a full range of workshops, plenary and keynote speakers, and networking opportunities, this year’s conference is celebrating the ever-expanding diversity of dispute resolution and our community. To that end, we are working to develop workshop tracks relevant to different fields under the greater dispute-resolution umbrella.
