NVMS Board

NVMS

I am happy to say that I will assume a seat on the Board of Directors for the Northern Virginia Mediation Service at the Board Meeting Scheduled for July 29, 2014.  I have been associated with NVMS in tangential ways for some time, as an instructor for courses and as an occasional donor.  Taking a seat on the Board will begin a more formal long-term relationship, to which I look forward.  I very much believe in the NVMS mission:  “NVMS provides the community with accessible, affordable, and appropriate conflict resolution and education services. We help people find collaborative approaches to achieve acceptable and enduring outcomes.”  I’m sure working with like-minded practitioners and supporters will be a pleasure.

4PS, CCAT & SMU

4PS

SMU Logo

I am part of a new adventure, one that we hope will lead to an established online dispute resolution consulting practice.  Robin West, David Leffler, Jeff Aresty, Julia Morelli, and I have formed a company called Fourth Party Solutions Corp.  The 4PS above is a temporary visual for the company while we finalize formation and get our act together as a business.

On the 2nd of June, I will present one of the plenary keynotes for the 2014 Council of Canadian Administrative Tribunals (Conseil des tribunaux administratifs canadiens) in Ottawa.  The keynote will focus on the use of technology in the practice of arbitration, using the National Mediation Board’s program as an example of some basic possibilities.

With regret, I have decided not to return for the second year of my contract with the SMU Dispute Resolution program.  Many personal elements went into the decision, and I hope to maintain a relationship with the department as an adjunct, in much the same way I was teaching for them before beginning the new contract a year ago.
