Southern California Mediation Association

2021 Virtual Annual Fall Conference

Friday, November 12th - Saturday, November 13th, 2021

2021 Annual Conference

The Southern California Mediation Association is excited to host its 2021 Annual Fall Conference; The Magic of Mediation. As SCMA continues to adapt to the ever changing climate caused by the global pandemic, we created a hybrid of in-person and virtual activities for this year’s conference. SCMA is thrilled to announce we will be bringing back the tradition of having an in-person Friday Evening Awards Dinner on November 12th in Downtown Los Angeles. Pursuant to the new ordinance signed by the Los Angeles City Council, the Awards Dinner is open to vaccinated guests only. The Saturday conference will remain virtual.
