In-person Events Postponed; Online Connections Expanded

The Nebraska Mediation Association takes the health and safety of our communities very seriously. In response to the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel all in-person events for the foreseeable future. When the situation is safe, we will re-open for in-person trainings and events.

Although we can't meet in person, we welcome you to join one of our online webinars. Additionally, NMA will be offering Basic Mediation Training and Family Mediation Training online for fall 2020.

We're here for you. Click the links below to contact us and to learn more.
