Welcome to the New VOMA Connections
VOMA is pleased to announce the new and improved VOMA Connections. As we enter the last year of this century and prepare for the next, our newsletter is changing. Our name, VOMA Connections, symbolizes the purpose of the newsletter - to connect you, our members, and others to the latest in the field of victim offender mediation and conferencing, nationally and internationally.

In addition to our new name, you will notice a whole new design and graphics, thanks to Mark Dixon, who comes to us from Eugene, Oregon with many years of professional experience in magazine lay-out.

The new VOMA Connections will include a variety of information - articles, interviews, case studies, a research and resource section, program information, photos, and more. In addition, look for our regular sections (world connections, member connections, training connections, etc.) for lots of interesting news.

A particularly exciting addition to the newsletter is upcoming in 1999the Research and Resource Bulletin highlighting critical research in a brief and easy to read format along with the latest in videos, books, assessment tools and other essential resources. Watch for this valuable contribution by Dr. Mark Umbreit and colleagues at the Center for Restorative Justice and Mediation, University of Minnesota.

The next issue of VOMA Connections will feature an in-depth look at the nuts and bolts of fundraising and development. If you would like to contribute ideas for maximizing funding and resources, please submit your article to VOMA Connections by Feb. 1, 1999.
