About AAM

The Austin Association of Mediators is a voluntary professional membership organization of mediators and those who support the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in the Central Texas area. Mediation has a cross-section of practitioners that reach into many different fields of expertise. Our members have backgrounds as diverse as the field of conflict resolution - legal, mental health, business, human resources, public policy, ministry and more.

As a professional organization, we provide education and networking opportunities to our members and other ADR professionals, and serve as a primary resource for those who are seeking mediation services in the Central Texas area.

We also seek to promote community knowledge of mediation and other alternative dispute resolution techniques. In doing this, we promote the use of mediation in all its forms. Our goals are to:

  • Educate the public about mediation
  • Serve as a primary resource for those who are seeking mediation services
  • Promote the use of trained mediators who meet the minimum standards established in Texas law
  • Provide professional education and networking opportunities
  • Assist members with identifying professional and volunteer mediation opportunities

For those seeking to find a mediator, feel free to look at our Professional Mediator Directory and Pro Bono Mediator Directory to see if there is someone who will meet your specific needs.

For those interested in becoming members or in learning more about our organization, we welcome you to attend any of our Upcoming AAM Events or e-mail our Membership Coordinator.

Our history: The Austin Association of Mediators began in 1980, initially incorporated as the Austin Family Mediation Association. In recognition of the growing diversity in the mediation field, the name was formally changed to the Austin Association of Mediators in 1991.
