- streamline the work of the conference by focusing the efforts on the actual areas of disagreement
- lay a foundation for resolution by beginning the process of negotiation and resolution in advance of the conference
- allow the conference to be concluded by the signing of the formal written settlement agreement
- eliminate any expense, lost time, or possible disputes regarding the terms of the settlement after the conference and expedite production of the settlement check(s)."
