New Program for MPMA Members
Mentoring is not just for individuals! Does your institution need a mentor to help take it to the next level? Check out the Resourcing Museum Professionals (RMP) Professional Interest Network.
A mentor helps to ease the awkward moments upon entering the museum profession. Remember how you didn’t know anyone at your first conference, you didn’t even know the “dress code” or who to call when you stumbled over projects at work?
A mentor helps you blossom into a more meaningful contributor to the museum community.
A mentoree reminds the experienced professional of the “good ol’ days” and the excitement and wonderment of starting something new.
A mentor and mentoree can become lifelong friends.
Mentors and mentorees are matched according to similar job responsibilities or areas of interest.
Once individuals are paired together, the arrangement is informal and can be whatever works for each match.
Mentors and mentorees come together by phone, email, etc., before the conference. They meet at the Mentoring Meeting and attend the Opening Reception together. They can arrange other meetings.
