MEDIATORS BEYOND BORDERS                          
Saturday, October 15, 2011, 10am-1pm

Larry Loebig WISR PhD Candidate & Marilyn Jackson, PhD, WISR Faculty, Facilitators. 
This will be an organizational Meeting for WISR’s Student Chapter of Mediators Beyond Borders (MBB).  WISR is applying to Mediators Beyond Borders (http://www.mediatorsbeyondborders.org/) to be a college with a student chapter of MBB.   This was briefly discussed at the recent WISR 3rdAnnual Conference.  There it was decided that we should have this organizational meeting to: 1) Review the Chapter Constitution submitted to MBB to see if any amendments need to be made to that Constitution; 2) have participants share stories with one another about their relevant experiences engaging in mediation, and the nature of their interest in actively participating in WISR’s MBB Chapter; 3) plan next steps for organizational activities, and/or steps to explore what some options might be for activities; and 4) discuss how to involve others at WISR. WISR’s MBB Chapter is open to all currently enrolled students, as well as to prospective students who have submitted their $600 enrollment fee.  It is also open to WISR non-degree learners for a $100/year fee which gives them access to a blog on Wisrville (http://wisrville.org) and to membership in MBB, as well as participation in all WISR seminars and group learning activities (but not to for academic credit).  For those who cannot participate on site at WISR, but who would like to participate by phone line hook-up to WISR’s on site speakerphone, you may contact Marilyn Jackson (mail@wisr.edu) for the telephone conference line number and access code.

 II) MARRIAGE FAMILY THERAPY (MFT) SEMINARS are designed for students pursuing an MFT license.  Other interested persons are welcome to attend but are requested to RSVP. They will be held at WISR from 10am to 2pm with a short break.  Bring a bag lunch.
