First, WAMS is supporting the American Cancer Society by sponsoring a Relay for Life Team at the Mt. Tahoma High School Relay for Life on June 12 and 13. Relay for Life is the world’s largest not-forprofit fundraising event. More that $2 billion has been raised since Relay was first held in 1985. This is a worldwide movement that takes place in 19 countries outside the United States. The American Cancer Society Relay for Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. For more information about this program, please visit www.RelayForLife.org.
Next, WAMS mediator John Cooper has recently been advised by the International Mediation Institute (IMI) in The Hague (Netherlands) that he has been added to its list of Certified Commercial Mediators. The IMI is an international collaboration of several ADR organizations around the world whose objective is to establish a panel of certified mediators for international commercial disputes. IMI’s website is found at http://www.imimediation.org.
