Meeting needs making life better

CMC 10th ANNUAL CONFERENCE

WEDNESDAY 11TH MAY 2016

CONGRESS CENTRE, LONDON


CMC DINNER

GRAY'S INN

TUESDAY 10TH MAY 2016


NEW FOR 2016

Members who bring along a user of mediation can do so at half the member price!


The profession of mediator, if that is what it is, is more than merely assisting disputant parties to reach a settlement, it is to enable them to reach the right settlement for them – meeting their true needs and, hopefully, making their lives better.

 

The CMC conference offers an opportunity to debate the many issues which arise from the practice of mediation, from the point of view of those who seek to use the services of mediators, the expectations of government, and the concerns of mediators themselves.

 

There are no closed categories of participants in our conference. For this reason we encourage members to bring along users of mediation, whether experienced or otherwise to widen the debate we wish to encourage.
