About the IAM
Welcome to the International Academy of Mediators
On behalf of the board and our more than 210 members, welcome to the International Academy of Mediators (IAM), a membership organization comprised of many of the world’s finest mediators.
The IAM was founded in 1996 to provide a forum for commercial mediators who meet IAM’s experience requirements to discuss best practices, grow as mediators, and support each other personally and professionally. Members meet at IAM’s annual in-person or virtual conferences, present concepts in the IAM Blog, exchange ideas through a member-only Listserv, provide resources through an ADR form library, and serve as mentors to rising mediators worldwide.
