The New England Chapter’s Informal Mentoring Program is open to all NE Chapter members. Members may apply to be a mentor or to be mentored, or both. If at all possible, you will be matched by the Mentoring Committee with someone in your geographic area.
Mentoring is done on an informal basis once a shared goal-setting exercise is done. The pair can be in contact for an entire year, or less; length of time and frequency of contact is up to those involved. It may or may not involve one or more face-to-face meetings, Skype, telephone , email, or social media.
This program is in the experimental stage, and we want it to work well, so we encourage you to apply and help us to make it better. We want this to be a good experience for everyone involved. If you feel that your first match is not going to work out for some reason, contact the Mentoring committee for a re-match.
Please send questions, suggestions, or concerns to the Mentoring Committee (Ellen Petraits, Sarah Long, Ashley Peterson)
