Texas A&M University School of Law

Fort Worth, TX 76102

We are so excited about holding our Symposium in person* this year! Our annual Symposium was last held at the Texas A&M University School of Law in 2017 and it proved to be an excellent venue.

We have reserved a block of rooms at the nearby AC Hotel Downtown Fort Worth (a Marriott property). Our room rate is $169 per night and you may book your room at this link. This discounted rate will expire 9/21/22 and reservations may be cancelled up to 72 hours prior to your stay to avoid any cancellation fees. We encourage you to go ahead and book a room, as needed, to lock in this rate.

Parking at the hotel is valet-only and we have been extended a 50% discount on the hotel’s valet and overnight parking rates (discounted to $12.50 for valet and $17 for overnight parking).

Around the law school, street parking as well as parking within designated lots will be free of charge.

*Though we would love to connect with you in person, for those who would prefer to watch our Symposium online, our Symposium will also be live via Zoom.

TEXAS BAR JOURNAL CENTER-SPREAD ADVERTISEMENT

Watch for our center-spread ad in the June 2022 issue of the State Bar of Texas' Texas Bar Journal! Every year since 2007, TMCA has placed an ad in the Texas Bar Journal listing all current Credential holders. This exposure to more than 120,000 Texas attorneys helps fulfill TMCA's mission to "Promote Quality Mediation Throughout Texas."

 

TMCA'S 2021 MEDIATION BENCHBOOK SUPPLEMENT

Each year, TMCA mails our "Supplement to the Mediation Benchbook" to more than 1100 County, District, Appellate, Federal, and Supreme Court judges across Texas. This Supplement includes all current TMCA Credential holders listed by county of primary practice. Our 2021 “Supplement to the Mediation Benchbook” is another way TMCA puts credentialed mediators at the fingertips of influencers and decision-makers while fulfilling its mission to promote quality mediation throughout Texas.

The Mediation Benchbook, Second Edition, mailed to the same judges, provides Texas judges and others that utilize mediation a resource that includes mediation statutes, a sample mediation order, TMCA credentialing criteria, information about TMCA's grievance process, and the Texas Supreme Court ethics orders. The Benchbook is funded by your dues and an educational grant from the James W. Gibson Fund.

 

FOR 2022 TMCA CREDENTIAL RENEWALS ONLY DUE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC

We hope you are safe and well. In June 2020, TMCA’s Board of Directors established a “COVID-19 Compassion Committee.” The task of this committee was to assess the impact of the pandemic on Texas mediators and to recommend to the Board any changes to 2021 and 2022 renewal requirements that could ease the burden on current and prospective TMCA Credential holders during this uncertain time.

For TMCA 2022 renewals only:

  • For Candidates for Credentialed Mediator whose fourth year as such occurred in 2020 or fifth year occurred in 2021, that candidate may continue as a Candidate for Credentialed Mediator through the year 2022.
