MANO is a group of highly dedicated professionals who focus their respective practices on helping people intelligently and peacefully resolve their conflicts. Our members include attorneys, psychologists/counselors, financial planners, business, and human resource professionals, covering a wide variety of subject matter expertise and experience.
Our general meetings (open to members and non-members) are held during the first week of the odd-numbered months at a variety of locations. (Please see our Upcoming MANO Events tab for information on topics, times and locations.) Meetings generally begin at 6:30 p.m. with a half-hour of networking followed at 7:00 p.m. by announcements and a speaker presenting on a topic of professional interest. An annual meeting is held in April of each year. This meeting is comprised of a more extensive educational component together with a business meeting including the announcement of newly elected officers.
Our next training is a program co-sponsored with MANO, the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association, and The Center for Principled Family Advocacy, Oct.28-29. See Upcoming Events for details.
The work of the Organization is coordinated by an Executive Board, four standing committees (Professional Education, Public Outreach, Membership, and Annual Meeting), and the efforts of many committed members who share an interest in promoting the use and practice of mediation in Northeast Ohio. Get involved, join the Board!
