About NJAPM's Peer Groups

NJAPM Peer Mediations Groups

Peer consultation meetings are a great way to get to know your colleagues, to network and to discuss difficult cases with a group of your peers. Group meetings also provide an opportunity to share marketing ideas and update each other on current mediation issues. Accredited members receive one half hour credit for each meeting attended. Most groups meet once a month, usually for breakfast or lunch. They are friendly, informal meetings where newcomers are always welcome.

If you would like to attend a meeting in your area, contact the closest group contact person for times and places. Watch for listserve announcements posted by group hosts.

Mediators share their insights on difficult cases.  You do not need to be a member to attend and there are no fees. Each attendee pays for his/her meal. Contact the group leader to confirm meeting time and location.

If there is no group close to you and you would like to form a peer consultation group, contact the chairperson.
