As you make your travel arrangements for the upcoming annual conference in Boston, please consider making room in your schedule for the Career Mentoring program workshop.
Friday, April 23 from 8 a.m. to Noon
This four-hour workshop will be modeled on the successful 2005 ARLIS/NA Mentoring Program workshop led by Margaret Law. The workshop will feature an introduction to mentoring, viewing of the 2005 presentation on DVD, discussion, role-playing, and breakout sessions with mentor/mentee pairs. Characteristics of mentors, mentees, and the mentoring relationship; methods of communication; and benefits and potential pitfalls of mentoring will be discussed.
In order to facilitate optimal matching of mentor/mentee pairs, a short application form must be submitted prior to the annual conference.
Application Form is Now Open:
We will especially need mentors of all backgrounds – whether you’ve been in the profession for a handful of years or are a veteran (and have the battle scars to prove it!). Please email Sarah Carter (scarter2 [at] ringling [dot] edu) with further questions.
