Why Participate?

  • Experienced planners get to meet enthusiastic new professionals and share insights and lessons learned from their careers.
  • Students and new professionals get to ask for advice on career development and get help networking.

Time Commitment

  • Participants attend an orientation session and at least one other conference event together. Beyond this, it is up to each mentor and mentee pair to decide how much time they spend together.
  • This is a low-time-commitment program. It only takes place during the conference, and is different from other mentorship programs offered in the state.

What Happens After I Sign Up?

  • You will receive a confirmation email within a few days of signing up.
  • You will receive information about your pair and the orientation session in September or October.
  • We encourage you to learn about your pair prior to the conference. This could include reading their profile on LinkedIn, doing a phone call to introduce yourself, and sharing resumes.
