New MII President appointed

Following a very successful term as President of the MII, Karen Erwin stepped down on 16th November 2012 handing over the Presidency to Gerry Rooney.

Gerry, who has served on Council for the past seven years, will hold the office for a three year period.  On taking over the role Gerry acknowledged the excellent work and growth of the Institutes membership under Karen’s leadership. Whilst thanking Karen, the Council and the various Committees of the Institute for the sterling work over the years, Gerry identified the exciting challenges that lie ahead for the MII, particularly as Mediation is growing as an option for Dispute Resolution, and the Government is considering  new legislation on Civil and Commercial Mediation.
