The application deadline for the PMPI Mentor Me program is quickly approaching! Please submit your application to serve as a mentee or mentor by 5pm on Monday, April 15th.

What is the Mentor Me program?
Mentor Me is a mentorship program designed for students to learn from industry professionals. Members have the opportunity to serve as mentors to students, providing both the opportunity to grow from one another. Students will benefit from learning outside the classroom and receiving guidance in the meetings industry, while industry professionals will benefit from having a direct influence on the student’s career growth and success in the program.

This student program is designed to meet the student’s specific needs and expectations. Once the student is paired up with their mentor, they have one academic calendar year (September 2013 – May 2014) to fulfill their goals and objectives.

What is expected of a Mentee?
A Mentee has to be committed to making the experience successful and valuable. Mentees must take the initiative to attend PMPI events and communicate regularly with their mentor. Mentees should also identify their goals and objectives for their participation in the program.

What is expected of a Mentor?
A Mentor must be passionate about the student’s success. A mentor commits to holding four, one-on-one meetings with their mentee throughout the year. Some examples of one-on-one meetings can be "Take Your Mentee to Work Day" or invite them out to a PMPI Educational Experience or event. Each mentor will receive monthly modules to help guide the mentoring process. The mentor can utilize these resources or develop his/her own process. Mentoring can focus on a variety of topics including: personal and professional development, career advice, ethics and leadership, etc.

The deadline to submit your application is 5:00pm on Monday, April 15th!
