From the Newsfeed: 2019 PNCWA Mentoring Program Announcement

We would like to invite you to participate in the 2019 PNCWA Mentoring Program. This program was developed to encourage experienced professionals (mentors) in our area to pass on their knowledge and experience to young professionals (protégés). Here’s how it works:

  1. Fill out the online survey:
    1. BOTH mentors AND protégés need to complete the survey.
    2. Please complete the survey by January 18, 2019. We will start pairing teams the end of January.
    3. Please note that the survey can be completed at any point during the year, so you can still participate in the program if you miss the survey deadline. However, after the initial pairing in February, we won’t do another round (or rounds, depending on need) of pairing for a month or two (if we get additional respondents to the survey). Therefore, please complete the survey by the deadline if you’re interested in participating so you have as much of the year as possible to dedicate to the program.
  2. Accept the mentor or protégé you’re paired with, or request a change, if desired.
  3. Commit 6 hours of your time to meet as a team between February and the 2019 PNCWA Annual Conference in September.

PNCWA has developed a Mentoring Guide to help teams get the conversation going during their meetings. The Guide can be downloaded from the PNCWA Mentoring Program website ( Mentoring meetings can cover any topic the teams like, but suggestions in the Mentoring Guide include technical skills, interpersonal skills, career path, and resumes. Mentoring teams are also encouraged to set goals during their first session to provide a roadmap for the year.

The mentoring program is just one of the many benefits of being a PNCWA member and presents a great opportunity for our members to connect with and learn from one another. Continue
