8:30 am to 4:45 pm
University of Texas Joe C. Thompson Conference Center, Austin
You won’t want to miss TMCA’s 10th Annual Symposium! While David Letterman made the Top Ten List famous (infamous), we are doing our best to bring you the Top Ten Lists mediators can count on to improve her or his mediation skills and practice. Will Pryor will present “Ten Keys to Happy Mediating” that will, hopefully, put a smile on your and your clients’ faces. Audience favorite Ross Stoddard will bring ethical awareness to help change those inevitable OMG moments into AHA moments. You will learn about the “Top Ten Judicial Decisions Impacting Texas Mediators” from commercial litigator Talmage Boston and work through the ins and outs in Rule 169 cases with the help of Judge Bruce Wettman. Bringing a worldly view, Joey Cope will share what he learned about Texas mediation during his recent travels to Rwanda and Kenya. To “top off” your mediator’s Top Ten List, 10 veteran mediators will intersperse practical insights throughout the day.
To register, print and mail this registration form with your payment. To read all about the Symposium, please view our 2014 Symposium brochure. For directions to the Joe C. Thompson Conference Center, click here.
See you in Austin this October!
TMCA Center Spread in June 2014 Texas Bar Journal
TMCA featured its Credential Holders in the center spread of the June 2014 issue of the Texas State Bar’s magazine, the Texas Bar Journal. The Texas Bar Journal is the only legal publication that reaches every attorney in Texas. Circulation is 100,000 and growing. A recent readership survey indicated that 96% of Texas attorneys read the Texas Bar Journal. To help market TMCA Credential Holders to Texas attorneys, TMCA has placed an ad listing all of our Credential Holders in the Texas Bar Journal every year since 2007.
This 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 is the first time TMCA listed its Credential holders by county. Since this Benchbook was mailed to more than 1200 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.
Late summer 2014, TMCA plans to mail its annual Benchbook supplement to this same list of judges. The supplement will include an updated list of Credential Holders. You must be a current Credential Holder in order to be listed in the supplement.
