Mentorship

The Mentorship Program provides invaluable mentorship by pairing student event planners with industry professionals.

We have a database of event professionals worldwide who have volunteered to mentor our student members.

The program takes place three times a year — spring, summer and fall.

Once assignments are emailed out, participants have three months to develop a mentor-mentee relationship.

Frequency and method of communication (ex: email, phone, video conferencing, etc.) is determined by the participants. Mentors and mentees are expected to maintain a minimum of two communication exchanges per month throughout the duration of the program.

Event professionals, including past mentors, may apply for a mentee up to three times a year. When applying, professionals indicate their areas of expertise. This information is used to pair them with a student whose interests match their expertise.

Please note that only 25 mentors are selected per program and assignments are not based on location. Mentors must have a minimum of five years of professional experience in the events industry to apply.
