Michigan Community Mediation Association (MCMA)

MCMA is a non-profit, 501 (C) (6) organization made up of the executive directors of the 17 Citizen Dispute Resolution Program (CDRP) centers in the state of Michigan. It is headquartered at the Oakland Mediation Center in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Gabrielle Reihanian is the executive director of MCMA.

MCMA is a professional organization that promotes mediation, particularly community mediation programs. It does so through the implementation of marketing strategies, development of legislative relationships and enhancement of partnerships with local and statewide companies and authorities. MCMA also provides its members with professional development opportunities.

On October 4 and 5, MCMA held its annual meeting at Tree Tops Resort in Gaylord, Michigan. Some of the topics discussed were increasing diversity within the statewide pool of mediators, funding challenges that are facing the CDRP centers for the 2022 fiscal year, and MCMA’s strategic plan.

A highlight of the event was a video presentation by Chief Justice McCormack. To view the video, click on the link below:
