2019 Spring Training
Every Spring, the Oregon Mediation Association partners with CDRCs across the state to bring you our annual spring training in multiple locations.
This year, we are asking for proposals for our presenter!
DUE: January 14th @ 8AM
An eight-hour training will be offered in each of the five locations below to include 6.5 hours of interactive, skill-based training for participants, one hour for lunch and two 15 minute breaks.
Dates: The five dates will be finalized depending on both the presenter’s availability and the schedule for each Center, but will be in the Spring of 2019 (March, April, May timeframe).
Reimbursement: The presenter will be paid $1,000 per training, for a total of $5,000. Half of the payment will be given prior to the first training, and the other half at the conclusion of the five events. The presenter will be responsible for their travel, accommodation and meal costs. An effort will be made by the organizers to find a home-stay in each location to off-set accommodation expenses.
Materials: The presenter will also be responsible for providing a master copy of the materials, that will be printed by each Center prior to the event.

Please complete and submit your proposal via email using the questionnaire below (please cut & paste into a word document). If you have any questions, and to submit your proposal, please email Jamie, OMA administrative assistant at: jamie@ORmediation.org. Proposals are due by January 14th at 8AM.
- Title of Training:
- Learning objectives, including what specific skills participants can expect to gain.
- What is your presentation style, and the approximate amount of time you will dedicate to each section of your presentation? (Example: “20% lecture and PowerPoint, 50% role-playing, 30% group discussion”).
- What are your audio/visual needs? Because of the size of the groups, it is our expectation that the presenter will incorporate some technology such as visuals or a PowerPoint.
- This training is offered to OMA members as a membership benefit and a way for them to increase their skills. A majority of the attendees are likely to be mediators. However, we also open the training to others in professions that also utilize conflict resolution skills, such as attorneys, counselors, ombudsman, HR professionals, managers, and others. How will your training address the needs both of mediators and others in related professions?
- Please review and consciously incorporate adult learning practices in your training, such as dialogue, small group discussion, or reflection. What interactive activities are a part of your training such as role plays, individual and small group exercises and other skill-building practice exercises
- List your experience leading an interactive training with groups of 10-40 adults.
- Please attach a training outline for your current presentation (draft format is acceptable), along with a suggested agenda. A complete copy of the training manual will be due one month prior to the first scheduled presentation, in order to allow time for any feedback, editing, and then final printing. Optional: Attach examples of your prior training materials.
- What is your scheduling preference? Can you provide trainings during work week and/or weekends?
