NASIG Mentoring Program
Gracemary Smulewitz and Dana Walker, Co-Chairs
NASIG is again sponsoring a conference mentoring program to help make new conference attendees feel more at ease, highlight membership benefits and create networking opportunities. The program will match experienced NASIG conference attendees with new conference goers.
Please see the information and forms at: http://www.nasig.org/mentoring.cfm.
To be a mentee, the only requirement is attendance at the 25th annual NASIG conference in Palm Springs, California, June 3-6, 2010.
To be a mentor, we ask for previous attendance to at least one NASIG conference, willingness to meet with your mentee at the conference, and establishing contact with your mentee prior to the conference.
Mentees and mentors are invited to the First-timers Reception on Thursday, June 3 from 4:15 to 5:00 p.m., and should strive to attend the reception.
The deadline for applications will be Monday, May 10. After all applications are received, you will be contacted within a few days with the name of your partner and general guidelines. This program has been very successful for several years and we look forward to your participation this year!
