Inspired by the MPCA/ACA’s mentor program, our support for new presenters and attendees pairs them with more seasoned veterans to help make their experience at the National Conference more enjoyable.
What are the benefits of the program?
For mentees, the program provides an opportunity to network and provides a friendly face throughout the conference weekend. Mentors gain the chance to share their insights and experience.
How does it work?
Mentors and mentees are grouped based on their common interests. Before the conference, you will receive an e-mail with contact information for whom you are paired with. It is best to begin contact as soon as you receive this information.
After we make contact, then what do we do?
Mentors and mentees have a variety of activities to choose from throughout the conference weekend. Activities to choose from include (but are by no means limited to) the following:
- A meet-and-greet for mentors and mentees will be scheduled early during the conference. Attendance at this session is recommended but not required.
- Information about the Popular Culture Association
- Visiting the book exhibit and panels
