New President Hilary O. Betson shares vision for MTMA

First, I would like to state that I am honored to be the association president. Thank you for trusting me to bring your goals to fruition during my tenure. I am so happy to be realizing my dream of practicing only in alternative dispute resolution and am so grateful to have so many fantastic Montana mediators at my side.

The best way to advance mediation and our organizational vision is to recognize one another and capitalize on our relationships and tremendous skillbase as a group. We make a great team!

I hope to grow our membership and the value of membership by increasing focus on our networking in local communities and organizations and as a group. We can lean on each other’s expertise and learn from one another. We have vast knowledge at our fingertips regarding not only mediation styles or particular techniques but also marketing mediation to diverse groups and expanding the reach of true conflict resolution practices throughout the state.

I am honored to take this charge and look forward to hearing your ideas on how we can move forward. Onward and upward.

Here’s to calming hearts and minds, solving problems, and reducing conflict so Montana and the world can be a better place.

Hilary O. Betson, J.D./M.P.A., CM
Attorney and Mediator
