PCA Mentor Program

Due to popular demand, we are hoping to re-institute the mentoring program at PCA this year.  However, for it to be effective, we need people to get involved both as mentors and mentees.  

To get involved, we ask you take a few minutes to complete one of the following short (8-question) surveys.   Please know that no data will be saved; after this year’s conference, all survey results will be deleted.  If you are uncomfortable with/cannot access the survey link but wish to be involved, please email Ed Janak at edward.janak@utoledo.edu or Ludovic Sourdot at LSourdot@twu.edu.


To become a mentor, we ask that you meet any of the following criteria:

  • Be a “frequent flier” in PCA (attending at least five national conferences); and/or
  • Be involved in PCA at the national or regional level (i.e. area chair, board member, journal editor, conference organizer, experienced session chair).

If you are interested in serving as a mentor, please fill out the mentor application form


To receive mentoring, we ask you be either/both of the following:

  • First-time presenter at the national PCA; and/or
  • A graduate student.

If you are interested in receiving mentoring please fill out the mentee application form.
