    Welcome to IMA Member Spotlight, where we take a closer look at individual IMA members and why they became a mediator. 

    Meet our first Spotlight, Scott D. Brand, CPM, and owner of Scott D. Brand Conflict Resolution. A multi-faceted professional based in Salmon, Idaho, Scott also mediates with the Supreme Court of Nevada and nationwide with AEP Meditation & Notary Services. He’s been an IMA member for two years and is a valued member of the IMA Board. 

    Here are a few questions IMA posed to Scott and his responses:

    Q: When and why did you become a mediator? 

    A: Simply, I really enjoy helping people solve problems. I wanted to help empower others to solve their own conflicts and control their own destinies versus going to court, handing over all self-determination to a stranger, and losing the power to dictate the outcome in their lives. I believe in people making hard choices for themselves instead of sitting on the sidelines and allowing a third party to determine their fate. Watching stress and negativity fade away and being replaced with a sense of calm is rewarding. 

    Q: What types of mediation do you practice?

    A: Child custody, divorce, property, small claims, estate, HOA.

    Q: When you’re not working, how do you enjoy spending your time? 

    A: When I’m not working, you will find me riding my mountain bike, floating on the river, spending time with friends and family, hiking with my dogs, or planning my next adventure.

    Q: Please share with us one fun fact about yourself.

    A: I have four dogs I rescued from the animal shelter. 

    Thank you, Scott for participating in our first IMA Member Spotlight!

    Congratulations to IMA President Carol Barkes, CPM, who is among 50 women recognized by Idaho Business Review as 2022 Women of the Year

    “2022 marks the 17th year the Idaho Business Review has been recognizing incredible women from across the state of Idaho. This year’s list of honorees represents a broad spectrum of industries, and we are privileged to have them among our community,” said Idaho Business Review Publisher Cindy Suffa in the publication’s award story. 

    Idaho Business Review reported, “This selection committee reviewed the applicants and selected the 50 honorees based on four categories: professional achievement, leadership, mentorship and community service…Each year, the Idaho Business Review announces an overall top winner as the Woman of the Year (based on scores from the judges and Idaho Business Review staff members), who is unveiled at the awards gala and introduced by the former year’s winner. Last year’s Woman of the Year was Odette Bolano of Saint Alphonsus Health System.”
