About the Program
MePA’s Mentorship & Professional Development Program is designed to connect members with peer members who provide advice and guidance on everything from licensing to early career opportunities to retirement planning.
Who are Peer Mentors?
Anyone who is a MePA mentor can be a peer mentor. Whether you are a graduate student who can share your experiences with an undergraduate student, an ECP who can provide advice to someone setting up a private practice for the first time, or a retired member who can share the ins and outs of retirement planning, your experience can help others.
How are Mentors and Mentees Matched?
When mentors and mentees complete an application, they can choose the areas where they can provide expertise/request expertise. Based on this, the executive director will make a possible match and then contact the mentor with the match request. If the mentor is available and agreeable, the connection will progress.
What is the time commitment?
A mentor has the option to choose whether the commitment is short term (one or two calls) or long term (once or twice a month for up to a year or more). The Executive Director and Policy Council are always available to answer questions that may arise about the process.
