Calling all Mentors!

Join the APA-IL Mentoring program and make a difference in a fellow planner's career. The program relies entirely on professional volunteers who are interested in mentoring a local protégé. The Mentoring Program tries to make this relationship as easy as possible by matching you with a protégé with similar interests and willing to meet at times and locations convenient for you. Here are just some of the reasons APA-IL members have signed up to be a mentor:

  • "I'm interested in helping the next generation of planners to find their career path, as well as extend my own networking circle."

  • "I had an outstanding professional mentor early in my career, and I would like to pay it forward."

  • "I think it is an interesting way to help someone get a start, develop contacts, and share experiences. I also think we are constantly learning, and by talking to someone who is being exposed to the latest subjects and trends, it will help me stay current.”

To apply, take 5 minutes to fill out the 2015 Mentor Application. If you have registered to be a mentor in the past and are still interested in participating, please fill out the 2015 Application. We want to make sure your information is current - thank you!
