     Please, note that all meetings take place from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. in the BAMC Conference Room (upstairs) unless otherwise specified. Our generous sponsor, Jeanne Koerber of RE/MAX Success will continue to provide lunch for us. However, you are welcome to bring your own brown lunch, if you prefer to do so or are unable to send in your RSVP 24 hours before a scheduled meeting.

We are, especially, thankful to our Section meeting sponsor, Jeanne Koerber of RE/MAX Success, for providing free lunch at all of our meetings. You are welcome to bring your own brown bag lunch, if you prefer to do so or are unable to send in your RSVP 24 hours before a meeting. We continue to welcome your ideas and suggestions about our meeting and CLE topics, as well as how to launch and/or grow our Collaborative practice.

We are very excited to announce that on Tuesday, February 28, one of the leaders of our Collaborative Community, Suzy Eckstein, will give a presentation on Collaborative Law and Resolution of Estates and Trust (Civil Non-Domestic) Matters. This topic should be of interest to members of BAMC who practice civil (domestic and non-domestic) law, as we will have an opportunity to acquire transformational information about empowering our clients to resolve their disputes out of court, while maintaining their privacy and preserving or maintaining mutually beneficial relationships. 

Collaborative Dispute Resolution Professionals (CDRP) monthly meeting venue has changed. All CDRP meetings will take place at Season’s 52 at 11414 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852, unless otherwise indicated.

Collaborative Practice Training Institute (CPTI) will present Mediation and Interest-Based Negotiation Skills Training from March 1 – 4 in Washington, D. C.  Early Bird rates expire February 1, 2017! Please, contact Morna Ikeda, the CPTI Administrator, at or 571-246-7584 for further information.

Those who have not met the mediation training requirement for Collaborative practice might wish to register for Mediation Matters’ 40-Hour Basic Mediation Workshop. In addition, the 24-hour Business and Employment Mediation Training Workshop will take place from February 17 – 19. Please, direct your inquiries to:,, or call 301/581-0330.

Save the date for CDA/CDRP Spring Institute which will take place on April 28, 2017 at Lakewood Country Club, 13901 Glen Mill Road, Rockville, MD 20850. Program details will be announced as soon as available. Watch this space!

We are committed to listening to you, as we strive to serve you and accommodate your needs. Please, help us by letting us know how we can serve you better.
