Sponsoring Mediation Settlement Day — Thursday, October 18, 2012
This annual event is sponsored by: FINRA Dispute Resolution, in conjunction with the New York State Unified Court System and over one hundred national and regional alternative dispute resolution programs, bar associations, community-based programs, public service and non-profit organizations, and schools concentrated in the New York City area and extending beyond to upstate New York, New Jersey, Illinois, California and Washington, DC. A detailed list of sponsors and supporters is below, along with links to some of their Web sites. Traditionally, the same sponsors participate annually and we add new sponsors each year.
Sponsorship is free and simple. It can involve as little as putting up the Mediation Settlement Day poster in a visible place leading up to the Kick-Off Event on October 17, 2012 and through Mediation Settlement Day on October 18, 2012. A printable version of the Mediation Settlement Day poster is available online. Other ways sponsors can participate include:
FINRA helps to coordinate the Mediation Settlement Day events each year and provides mediation at reduced rates throughout the month of October. See Mediation Settlement Month for more information.
