Call for members: IMI Qualifying Assessment Program Appraisal Committee

IMI is recruiting three further members for its QAP Appraisal Committee.

What does the committee do?

The IMI QAP Appraisal Committee receives applications from organisations who wish to have their program approved as a ‘Qualifying Assessment Program’ and audits existing programs, in order to ensure a continuity of compliance with the existing standards. These programs assess experienced mediators, in order to confirm their quality as ‘IMI Certified Mediators’. Work is conducted on a voluntary basis, with a commitment of ~3-5 hours per month.

Once a QAP application is received and checked for completion by the IMI Team, a call for volunteers is made to the Appraisal Committee. Once 2-3 volunteers are available, the application is sent to them for review and feedback. The application is assessed against IMI’s criteria. If the application needs improvement, it is sent back to the applicant; otherwise, it is given a final assessment by the Appraisals Committee Chair.

The work of the Appraisals Committee is vital, as QAPs are the ‘quality gateway’ for mediators to become IMI Certified. View current members here.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for volunteers who are:

  • Advocates for IMI and mediation
  • Willing and available to vet QAP applications
  • Analytical
  • Able to identify potential conflicts of interest
  • Interested in helping organisations and new Qualifying Assessment Programs
  • Interested in helping to continually improve the QAP appraisal process and the international mediator credentialing scheme
  • From an organisational background, especially if they have participated in assessment system design (desirable)
  • Senior in years’ mediation experience and knowledge

This committee is subject to IMI’s Committees and Taskforces policy.

How may I apply?

To apply, please send an email to [email protected], indicating your interest and credentials. Please include a link to your IMI Certified profile (where applicable), LinkedIn, or attach your CV.
