Mentorship

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

We are excited to announce the launch of our 2022 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. 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.
  3. Book Club: In 2022, the GMC Book Club is merging with the mentorship program! Mentor/mentees may choose to include a book discussion in their meetings or join the Zoom book chats with other GMC members and mentorship program participants. We will read two books in 2022.

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 previous mentee: “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.”
