Saturday afternoon, we will enjoy the popular Bonus Marketing For mediators, after the training conference ends - from 12:45 to 1:30 pm. This bonus session is optional (and included in the registration fee) and no CLE credit will be offered.  We will have a roundtable discussion on the what to do's, how to do's and when to do's, led by an AAM seasoned mediator.  Bring your questions and ideas about marketing for this lively conversation.  A light snack will be served to attendees. You may select this optional bonus section on the registration form.    

Be sure to build in time to venture around Charleston!  It is beautiful in April and there is so much to see and do!  There is a FREE Charleston DASH Shuttle that makes a loop all day and into the evening for those that prefer to ride and not walk. The nearest stop is just across the street from the Francis Marion.

We hope you will join us!  As others have reported after their first AAM seminar, "these trainings are not to be missed"!   You will take away new tips and information, and meet many new mediator colleagues!  

You are invited to join us for "Dinner with a Group" if you arrive on Thursday evening.  Information will emailed to you when it is available.  A group dinner reservation will be put into place at a very nearby restaurant for everyone to enjoy dinner together as they arrive and check in on Thursday evening.  This has become a fun time before the conference - time to get to know others and reacquaint before the conference begins!
