A publication of the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission, "The Intermediary" is a newsletter which serves as a bridge between the Commission and the state's certified mediators, as well as alternative dispute resolution (ADR) professionals and the public at-large.
The Fall 2016 Edition iterates on its initiatives to integrate new media as an avenue to reach diversifying stakeholders, while also positioning itself for future shifts in communications.
In 2015, the Commission began spearheading this new space of disruptive technologies and its trepidatious intersection with dispute matters and legal practitioners by establishing the Ad Hoc Committee on New Media. In taking this approach, the Commission believes it may address potential concerns associated with content on websites, social media, as well as innovations with potential impact to the ADR process as they emerge.
The Chair introduces the Commission's recent activities in the first three (3) pages of the newsletter, and directs readers to pages 11 through 13, which is an excerpt of the Executive Summary of the "NC DRC New Media Research Report" presented to the full commission in August 2016.
This edition's featured highlight is also of commission member leading the New Media Committee and its initiatives, with the following excerpt on page 8:
"The Commission congratulates member Lucas Armeña on receiving his Master’s of Science Degree in Emergency Management and Business Continuity. Mr. Armeña has been a member of the Commission since 2013 and chairs the Commission’s New Media Committee. He is an avid user of new/social media and frequently tweets about his work with the Commission.
Mr. Armeña is one of the founders of Airlas, LLC, (an acronym for Air, Land and Sea), a new company which focuses on emergency management; unmanned systems, including drones, driverless cars, and unmanned submersibles; and policy and regulation relating to unmanned systems.
Mr. Armeña lives in Fletcher, North Carolina and was appointed to the Commission by Governor Pat McCrory. The Commission congratulates Mr. Armeña on his graduation and wishes him much success with his new enterprise."
The newsletter also provides information on Commission news and updates, a new advisory opinion, CME programs, ethics, training opportunities, as well as other noteworthy features and statistics.
