ASLA-NCC Mentorship program kicks off Thurs, Jan. 24th
Mentorship Program: Kick-Off Meeting
Dear ASLA Member, At long last the new ASLA-NCC Mentorship Program is set to take flight, and it is my pleasure to invite you to our kick-off meeting on January 24 at the San Francisco AIA office. The Mentorship Program has been in the making for two years, as we have listened to your requests and reviewed best practices from around the country in order to facilitate constructive professional connections for members like you. However, we are not done yet; for the program to reach its full potential, we need your participation. The mission of our Mentorship Program is to foster an exchange of ideas, expertise and camaraderie among Northern California landscape architecture professionals of all levels. The program organizes participants into small, regionally-defined groups of two to five ASLA members. Ideally, each group will include a senior practitioner (15+ years of experience), mid-level practitioners (5-15 years of experience), and entry level or Student ASLA members. In this scenario mentorship can happen on every level: each participant will have something to learn and something to teach.Your tenure and your specific experience in our profession make you uniquely qualified both to help another landscape architecture professional thrive, and to receive support in turn. Even if you have never been part of a mentoring relationship before, you can energize our new program with your ideas and insights. By coming to our kick-off meeting, you will have the opportunity to build your mentoring group from the ground up, matching your unique professional interests with the expertise and needs of others there and immediately beginning to reap the rewards of mentorship.Many ASLA-NCC members have already signed up to participate in the Mentorship Program, and it is not too late for you to join as well. You can learn further details about the program on our website, and sign up through that page. We welcome and encourage every member to engage in this valuable and highly rewarding program.
When: Thursday, January 24th
Where: AIA San Francisco, 130 Sutter Street, Suite 600
