Virginia Mediation Network’s Fall Conference, Richmond, VA, 9/28-29

If you are a Virginia conflict resolution, mediation, social justice, or peacebuilding professional I would strong recommend the Virginia Mediation Network’s fall conference to be held September 28-29, 2019 in Richmond, VA.

The conference is an opportunity for VMN members and nonmembers to network with each other, learn new information to enhance their mediation skills, and earn Continuing Mediation Education credits (CME’s) towards recertification.  The conference will provide workshop sessions related to family and general mediation topics, with a focus on empowering ourselves to be the best conflict resolution professionals we can be.  This year we are excited to welcome the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities Jacquie Johnson as our Keynote Speaker.   To see the entire Program Agenda planned for the weekend, please go to and click on the ‘Conferences’ Tab.  There you will find a complete program with a listing of workshops offered Saturday and Sunday.
