Virginia Mediation Network Membership 2021
Starting January 5 the Virginia Mediation Network began using a highly-rated member management software called Wild Apricot. The most exciting part of this new system is that members can elect to have their memberships automatically renew on personal anniversary dates. This will allow new members to join mid-year and have the benefit of a full year’s worth of membership. It will also allow current members to renew easily and not miss out on any of VMN’s member benefits.
Payments will be handled much the same way as with PayPal, but it will be through AffiniPay, the internal payment plan of Wild Apricot. Members will be able to edit individual profiles and access the new ‘store’ to purchase items that identify you as a VMN member or supporter. We are elated to introduce this new member service program.
The Virginia Mediation Network (VMN) is an association of professional mediators in the Commonwealth of Virginia whose mission is:
- To provide an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas and the development of solutions to all forms of dispute.
- To enhance the professional skills of mediators by promoting educational development in conflict resolution.
- To increase the public understanding and acceptance of the role of mediators in dispute resolution.
- To act as resource to organizations and institutions through which mediation services are provided.
- To promote professional interests and skills of mediators at the local and state level.
