CPRA Mentorship Program

CPRA is pleased to announce a new mentor program facilitated by the Emerging Leaders Network and the Directors Section. This new program has been developed after much collaboration and research through a special steering committee. Later this year, the CPRA Mentor Program will officially launch and run as a pilot program through next year. Several pairings will be made each year for many years to come.

Below are some highlights of this program:
- Interested applicants must be CPRA members and can apply online from Oct 1 – 31.
- The program will officially launch at the annual Holiday Luncheon in December and conclude the following fall of 2020 at a special ELN event.
- Over the course of the program, mentors and mentees will be expected to participate in 3 formal events (the above 2 and a Lunch & Learn event) and meet twice informally on their own.
- Mentors and mentees will provide feedback throughout as well as at the conclusion of the program. Participants will be asked to serve on the committee to oversee the next class of mentorships.
