Mentorship

Are you ready to join APMP GMC’s mentorship program?

Serving as a mentor is an excellent way to give back in your profession and earn CEUs toward your APMP certification. Participating as a Mentee is an excellent way to meet someone new in our profession and learn from others’ valuable experiences.

GMC’s Mentorship Program pairs Mentors and Mentees on an annual basis. The program includes a kickoff session, monthly one-on-one virtual (or in person if geographically practical) meetings between Mentors and Mentees, monthly reporting on successes, challenges, and outcomes, and of course…CEUs for participants!

Are you ready to join APMP GMC’s mentorship program?

We are excited to announce the launch of our 2020 mentorship program to support the growth and development of our chapter members. This year’s program consists of three pillars:

  1. Mentor/Mentee Relationships: Foundational to the program are individual mentor and mentee pairings. After applying as either a mentor or a mentee, you will be matched according to your region, industry, job function, background, and goals. After matching, it’s up to the pair to determine the frequency, direction, and goals of the relationship.
  2. Challenge Chats: Back by popular demand are our quarterly Challenge Chats to discuss hot topics and tackle key industry challenges. Each webinar will be focused around a theme and include experienced mentors available to facilitate the discussion, share their experiences, and answer questions.
  3. Mentorship Mondays: On the first Monday of the month, we will serve up insights, tips, and activities directly to your inbox to help spark conversation starters during your weekly chats.

Whether you are new to our industry or a proposal veteran, there is no shortage of professional development that is possible through this program.

Take it from one mentee from our 2019 season: “I have so appreciated our mentor-mentee relationship this year. Both personally and professionally, it has been exactly what I needed. I know your review of my practitioner application played a huge role in passing the next level of certification. But most of all, I am thankful for your friendship. From your listening ear, to challenging me and encouraging me, thank you.
