Greetings! Now that March Madness is over (and how ironic that Duke was the site of our 10th anniversary conference), it’s time to make plans for the 30th anniversary conference.
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.
The only requirement to be a mentee is attendance at the 30th Annual NASIG Conference in Washington, DC.
To be a mentor, we ask that 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.
We invite all mentees and mentors to the First-timers Reception on Wednesday, May 27 at 5 pm. 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 Wednesday, May 13, 2015. After all applications are received, we will contact you with the name of your partner. This program has been very successful for a number of years and we look forward to your participation this year!
Please feel free to contact us for additional information about the mentoring program.
