Mentoring Program

PMI Metrolina Chapter wants to provide avenues for members to get to network and grow professionally by developing contacts in the industry. The mentoring program is a great way for the chapter to provide this opportunity. The program not only benefits the mentees but the mentors as well. Mentoring provides a great way to give back to the project management profession. It gives participants the opportunity to grow their network while at the same time earning PDUs!

The mentoring relationship will be conducted between the mentor/mentee pairs and their meeting frequency and schedule will be agreed upon at the beginning of the program. The partners will then conduct their meetings, give one another feedback and rate the overall program. The chapter will provide training in March on how to have an effective mentoring relationship. The time commitment will be up to the mentoring pair. The chapter will also support the mentoring pairs with an online discussion forum. Please help us kick off this rewarding program. Regardless of your career level, you may participate as a mentor or mentee.

You can visit the PMI Metrolina Chapter Mentoring Program for more information and to register to be a mentor or mentee. Once you sign up, you can check back for updates or we will contact you to complete the next step in the process. For more information regarding mentoring contact Mark Cichonski at mark@4cchangepartners.com.
