The Special Interest Groups are reviving in earnest!

While the Workplace Mediation SIG has been thriving, the Elder Mediation, Family Mediation, and Neuroscience SIGs have been dormant.  This is surprising, considering the high level of interest reflected on people's membership forms.  OMA VP Sara Matarazzo has taken the lead in getting these SIGs moving again by updating the Google Groups distribution lists and sending out initial messages.  But she needs people to step forward to maintain those lists and to periodically send "let's keep talking" messages.  If you can spare an hour a month doing that, please drop us an email at OMA@OMediate.org!  Remember, without participation, SIGs simply won't work.
