NEWWA Mentoring Program
Most of us have been there—we’re new to the profession, new to the association, and know little to few people. Walking into a reception, event, or even course can be very intimidating, especially when you look around at all the different groups laughing and talking together. You may wonder: “how can I fit in?” and “where do I start?”
15 years ago, NEWWA and its Membership Committee recognized this issue, and from there the Mentoring Program was born. The program, which lasts from 6-12 months, pairs a new member (mentee) with a more “established” member (mentor), to help the new member gain greater knowledge of NEWWA and the profession, and hopefully make a friend in the process.
The program started in 2008 and since then has seen more than 50 mentees complete the program, with 30 mentors assisting along the way. Want to learn more about the association or water profession in general? This 6-12 month program is the way to go. A mentee may begin the program at any time and is allowed 6-12 months to complete it.
There are great opportunities for both new and young members to get involved as a mentee, and even greater opportunities for existing members to become a mentor! If you’re interested in either, please contact the Mentor Program Coordinators:
Lauren Underwood - firstname.lastname@example.org
Emma Page - email@example.com
Michaela Bogosh - firstname.lastname@example.org
