Announcing the 2012 NASIG Mentoring Program

NASIG’s Mentoring Group 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.

Information about the program is located at: http://www.nasig.org/mentoring.cfm. Sign up to be a mentor or mentee using the form located at http://www.nasig.org/survey.cfm?pk_survey=16.

The only requirement to be a mentee is attendance at the 27th Annual NASIG Conference in Nashville, TN.

To be a mentor, we ask you have attended a previous NASIG conference, be willing to make contact with your mentee prior to the conference, and be willing to meet with your mentee at the conference. Of course we hope you’ll also check on your mentee during the conference, especially at group social events, just to make sure they aren’t lonely.

Our Guidelines for Mentors and Mentees is available at http://www.nasig.org/committee_mentor_guidelines.cfm.

We invite all mentees and mentors to the First-timers Reception on Thursday afternoon, June 7. This is a great time to meet up with your mentor or mentee for the first time and get to know one another.

The deadline for applications will be May 10, 2012. After all applications are received, we will contact you with the name of your partner. This program has been very successful for several years and we look forward to your participation this year!

For additional information about the Mentoring program, please contact the committee co-chairs:

Sarah Sutton, Chair, sarah.sutton@tamucc.edu
