I'll be on the call.

Very intrigued by the "newly formed task force on standards and certification of mediators." Is there any source for news or developments on this you could share a link to before we meet?

Will be good to hear your voice and to have your input. 

The task force was recently formed following some informal discussion among the participating groups which are the ADR Section, Resolution Washington, Washington Mediation Association, and Washington Association of Family Courts and Conciliation.  The first meeting of the task force was this past Monday. So far, no links to share. Our committee meeting will be prior to the next meeting of the task force.  Alan Alhadeff is the ADR Section representative to the task force. There will be opportunity for participation by others.
