Mentoring Matters during the COVID-19 Crisis! In addition to boosting confidence during difficult times, mentoring can help fight isolation. Mentoring is a two-way relationship that benefits organizations and individuals. It doesn’t matter how much or how little experience you have; there is always room to grow, both professionally and personally, with the opportunity to develop friendships along the way. We like to think of it as a partnership where both parties benefit! If you’re interested in becoming either a mentor or mentee complete this form by Friday, Sept. 25. In early October we will work with you to make the best matches possible, and plan a virtual meet and greet to kick off the program for the year.
LAST REMINDER: IT’S TIME TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP DUES! Current memberships ended June 30! If you are a current member please remember to renew your membership for July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021. Dues were to be paid no later than August 1st. New members may join the organization by paying their dues at the same link, so please forward this newsletter to your colleagues to share all of the exciting things that we are doing and encourage them to sign up today!
Don’t forget that one way to entice a colleague to become a member is to invite them to attend a Career Connections event as your guest. This is a great way to see firsthand what we’re all about.
WE WANT TO KEEP YOU CONNECTED! Have you or a colleague received a promotion or moved to a new office? Are you continuing your education here on campus, EIU, Parkland or elsewhere? Please let Hannah Stites know and she will share that information in the next newsletter. Our goal is to make as many connections as possible to ensure you are successful in whatever it is that you are doing!
Please remember to let us know if you are planning to retire soon so that you can be an IAP retiree member! We will miss you very much, but we hope that you’ll come back for a visit!
