Call for Community Mediation Surveys

In July of this year, NAFCM wrote to let you know of the partnership between George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analyses and Resolution (S-CAR) and the JAMS Foundation to develop and implement a two-phase data collection process in order to determine the present state of community mediation.

The first phase of this two-phase data collection process–the online survey–is now released. Please use this link to access the survey: SOCM 2019 Center Survey. The online survey will remain open to be completed by you, as a community mediation center, until 11:59 PM local time on Tuesday October 23rd.

All community mediation centers that participate in this online survey will be eligible to be selected as a host for a community listening session.

Phase two of the data collection will begin before the end of the year with the community listening session selection process. Administration of the listening sessions will be completed during the latter part of March 2019. Up to 24 community mediation centers, chosen from the pool of centers who participated in the initial online survey, will be selected to host a community listening session. Each selected community mediation center will receive up to $1,200.00 financial support to defray the cost incurred by participating in the training, implementation, and reporting process of hosting a listening session.
