Mediator Roundtable

As needed, Northern Community Mediation will offer one-to-two hour workshops for those individuals who mediate for NCM. The purpose of these round tables is to focus on a specific subject matter that is of interest to the mediators. They also provide the staff of NCM an opportunity to update the mediators on evolving information, as well as discuss best practices.

In the fall of 2019, NCM will be hosting a Mediator Round Table focusing on divorce and parenting time. Details will be available the beginning of the summer.

State of Michigan
