Pursuant to several years of effort by the New Hampshire Conflict Resolution Associations, formerly the New Hampshire Mediators Association, and other interested persons and with the support of state legislators, NH RSA 328-C was enacted in 1990, thus creating the New Hampshire Marital Mediator Certification Board. On January 1, 2010, the name of the board was changed to the Family Mediator Certification Board. The board consists of eleven members appointed by the Governor or by statute:
|Karen Borgstrom, Esq. (Chair)||Attorney||10-16|
|Elizabeth Christensen, C.F.M.
|Ellen Dinerstein, C.F.M.
|Candace Dochstader, C.F.M.
|Honorable Michael Garner||Marital Master||04-14|
|Karen McCall||Public at Large||04-15|
|David Phillips, Esq.||Public at Large||04-15|
|Marianne Rousseau, C.F.M.||NHCRA||9-16|
|Honorable Lucinda Sadler||Family Division Judge||11-14|
|Robert Sturke, Ph.D., C.F.M.||NHCRA||01-16|
|Terry Sturke, M.S.||Mental Health Professional||04-14|
The Board usually meets on the first Wednesday of every month to review applications, address any complaints and discuss other issues relative to certifying family mediators.
The next meeting of the Board will be April 2, 2014 in Room 405 of the State House Annex, Room at 4:15 PM. The Board meeting scheduled for March 12, 2014 has been cancelled.
This website was created as a resource for information about the Family Mediators Certification Board. As new rules are adopted, they will be posted here.
