AAEA is launching a new Mentoring Program and is looking for interested mentors and mentees to apply. The program will last for a year, but will start with a workshop in Seattle immediately preceding the 2012 Annual Meeting. Applications for both mentors and mentees are due by May 18, 2012.
The 12 month program begins with a comprehensive matching process. Once partnerships are formed, a formal Dynamic Mentoring Connections training will take place at the 2012 Annual Meeting in Seattle on Saturday August 11, 2012 for all matched participants. While the program encourages mentoring pairs to commit to a minimum of two meetings (email, phone, etc.) per month devoted to mentoring activities, mentor pairs will determine the length and frequency of the mentoring meetings. A mid-year energizer webinar and year-end celebration will also be provided as part of the program
The program can accept 15 matched pairs of mentors and mentees. If accepted, mentees will be expected to pay the $125 registration fee. There is no registration fee for mentors.
You can find more information about the program, including the links to apply, on the Mentorship Workshop page of the Annual Meeting website.
