Letter from the President
Welcome prospective members, current members, those seeking the services of a mediator; and/or those looking to learn more about mediation. Please explore our website.
The New York State Council on Divorce Mediation promotes mediation as the first choice when couples are separating, divorcing, or facing family conflicts. Mediation provides an environment to discuss and resolve difficult issues, allows the couple to maintain control of the outcome, and is generally less expensive than a traditional, adversarial process. If you are looking for a mediator, we encourage you to visit the “Find a Mediator” section of our site.
The New York State Council on Divorce Mediation also promotes the highest professional standards for divorce mediation. The Council had been Accrediting mediators since 1986. This professional designation requires family and divorce mediators to demonstrate their experience and skill as a mediator. We also assist and encourage mediator excellence by offering: continuing education at three conferences each year, our publications and newsletters, and a member Listserve which offers updated information and a forum for mediators to seek and find answers. If you are considering membership, please join us! You will gain the support and friendship of fellow mediators from throughout the State. You can sign up for membership by visiting the “Become a Member: Join” page.
I am honored to serve as President of the New York State Council on Divorce Mediation in its 32nd year for the 2015-2017 term. Following in the footsteps of the past Presidents, I have a great appreciation for the collective wisdom of our members that will help guide us as we move forward. We are privileged to have founding members still actively involved to ground us in our history and remind us of the work we’ve done. At the same time, we are fortunate to have new members bring fresh insights and energy to carry out our goals as we move forward. If you are a current member, I encourage you to get involved in carrying out our strategic Plan. Contact a Committee Chair at the “About: Committees” page and offer to get involved.
Thank you for visiting The New York State Council on Divorce Mediation website. If you are in need of more information, please leave a note in the “Contact Us” section of the site and we will get back to you shortly. We welcome your feedback.
