Attending the conference for the first time can be an overwhelming and exciting experience. The NASPA Annual Conference First-time Attendee Subcommittee would like to invite you to participate in this one-on-one mentoring program. This is a way for us to continue to build community and to give first-time attendees a chance to personally connect with someone in the field.
For potential MENTEES, this is a chance for you to build your NASPA network on-site at Annual Conference before you arrive and a chance for you to connect with a mentor on-site while in Austin. We know that you are excited to join us and want you to have a chance to connect with as many attendees who can make your on-site conference experience great!
For potential MENTORS, this is your opportunity to share your experience as a seasoned Annual Conference attendee and professional! We are looking for mentors who are willing to connect with first-time attendees throughout the conference.
Mentors and mentees will connect prior to the conference to make plans to connect once on-site. This could mean getting coffee or a meal together, attending an education session or reception together, or just finding time on-site to meet and get to know each other. We encourage participants to discuss everything from work, work-life balance, career goals, and other topics that can help both mentor and mentee find a connection together. We hope your experience will go beyond Annual Conference and well into your professional lives.
To participate, please fill out a profile that best describes your desired participation. You are welcome to sign up for this mentor-mentee opportunity through March 27, 2020. Matches will be made starting in mid-February and will continue through March 27th.
