ABOUT THE SCMA:
The Southern California Mediation Association (SCMA), founded in 1989, is a professional organization devoted to promoting mediation as a tool for resolving conflict. The SCMA’s mission is to promote mediation, excellence in the practice of mediation, and community awareness of the mediation process through education, dialogue, and outreach. SCMA is founded on the principle that mediation empowers parties to design their own solutions to disputes that might otherwise prove costly and cumbersome to resolve in court.

SCMA provides resources for its members and the public to learn more about mediation and to equip them with the skills and tools to resolve conflicts through the mediation process.
