At the last meeting the committee approved amending 26-09-015 (4), see above. The proposal is before the ADR Executive Committee.
The Forum for the proposed ICAA (International Commercial Arbitration Act) is tentatively set for October 23, 2013 at the WSBA offices and will be webcast. Anyone who can help in planning and executing the event, let me know.
We are presenting the ICAA to the WSBA Legislative Committee on Sept. 13th.
A subcommittee to examine the issues raised by Advisory Opinion 2223 (mediators drafting agreements) is being formed. Anyone interested in participating should contact Rina Goodman or myself.
HB1353 (early mediation) may get on the agenda for the Judiciary's Committee's fall working session. If anyone knows, or even if you don't, someone on the Judiciary Committee, particularly it's chair, and is willing to contact them about the bill, let me know please. The CLE on early mediation is set on Feb 14th.
FYI, as I mentioned last month, I was going to ask around to the mediators I know, who practice in areas other than divorce and family, to see if anyone was interested in a possible group addressing Advisory Opinioin 2223. So far, no one, which is kinda what I expected. Most don't write or chose documents for unrepresented parties. If anyone pops-up who's interested, I'll forward their names.
