Suzanne M. Duvall Named
TMCA’S Outstanding Credentialed Mediator for 2015
All 2015 TMCA Credential mediators are listed in the 2015 “Supplement to the Mediation Benchbook” which mailed last Fall to more than 1200 District, County, Federal and Supreme Court judges. This annual Supplement is another way TMCA puts credentialed mediators at the fingertips of influencers and decision-makers while fulfilling its mission to promote quality mediation throughout Texas.
The Mediation Benchbook provides Texas judges and others that utilize mediation a resource that includes mediation statutes, sample mediation orders, TMCA guidelines and grievance process, and the Texas Supreme Court ethics orders. Inside the Benchbook’s front cover is a list of Credential holders by county. This was the first time TMCA listed its Credential holders by county. Since this Benchbook was mailed to all District, County, Federal and Supreme Court judges, we wanted these decision-makers to be able to easily find Credentialed mediators within their counties/regions. The Benchbook was funded by your dues and an educational grant from the James W. Gibson Scholarship Fund.
