Frequently Asked Questions

What is the SMP?

SMP seeks to provide interested parties in mediation the necessary platform to mould the standards necessary for mediation to be a thriving profession, and to provide the cross-pollination of views and perspectives between professionals and various stakeholders.

Why Should I Join the SMP?

If you have an interest in mediation, or want to be plugged into a community of like-minded practitioners, the SMP is the organisation for you. You get to plug into the mediation network, and be involved in a myriad of different social and professional development activities to grow and become a better professional.

What were some of the recent events?

Some of the recent events held include a members’ guided tour of the National Gallery to discover Singapore’s unique legal heritage; a talk by District Judge David Lim on his practical perspectives in ADR; a Family Mediation Workshop Refresher Course; and co-organising larger events like “The Singapore Convention: Life after August 2019”, a think tank day-long event.

What are the things that you do apart from organising Events?

We are duty bound to advance the field of mediation in Singapore. At past events we have invited speakers from other jurisdictions to speak about their extensive experience in order to learn from them; organised town hall discussions regarding the Mediation Bill and more.

Do you invite non-members to events?

It depends. Some events are more exclusive as they are for those who are committed to the organisation. While other events are open to non-members; members are of course given priority for registration and have a discounted fee.

Why are there membership categories for the SMP?

We have tiered membership categories because members join us at different seasons of their mediation journey. We want to help them reap the necessary benefits of where they are at, yet ensuring that nobody gets left out. New to mediation? No problem, we still want to include you, share the space and grow with you.
