Free Mediation Service to HOAs
The most common form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is mediation. During a mediation, a neutral third party works with the parties to reach an understanding or to settle a dispute. Mediation is an informal process and revolves around exploration while focused on solutions. It is unlike litigation in that it is a non-binding, private process and parties are not required to settle their dispute.
In order for mediation to work, parties must be motivated to settle the dispute and should demonstrate a willingness to work together to reach a compromise.
The CAI Rocky Mountain Chapter Executive Director, Mrs. Bridget Sebern, has a certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution from MSU Denver. Mrs. Sebern has 17 years of substantive expertise in matters of community associations. She holds a certificate as a Resilience Practitioner, she is a Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher, and she is actively working on obtaining her accredited certificate in Integrative Coaching.
Mrs. Sebern offers facilitative mediation to HOA Boards and community associations. This type of mediation empowers parties and helps them take responsibility for their own disputes and the mutually agreeable resolution of said disputes. In mediation, Mrs. Sebern asks questions to get to the root of the issue, searching for underlying interests, and assists in finding and analyzing resolution options.
