LLAMA Mentoring Program Seeking Mentors and Mentees
Do you want to share your experience and expertise by encouraging and
nurturing a future LLAMA leader?
Do you want to develop your leadership and management skills by learning
from a current LLAMA leader?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you are just the
right person to participate in an exciting 10 month formal mentoring
The LLAMA mentoring program is designed to encourage and nurture current and
future leaders and to develop and promote outstanding leadership and
management practices. Mentees in the program benefit from mentor experience
in areas such as career planning, job assistance, shaping careers, and
succession planning. Mentors provide training and guidance for mentees,
sharing leadership and management skills and practices.
Mentees and mentors are supported as part of a formal and structured program
which is designed with an eye on sustainability, legacy, realism, structure,
expectations, and an emphasis on professional development. Data collection
and evaluative instruments have been developed and are used to ensure that
feedback from participants contributes to and improves the program.
Mentee participants must be current or potential LLAMA members. Candidates
may self nominate or may be nominated by others. Mentees are required to
attend the Annual Conference in Chicago to participate in the program's
formal orientation and to meet their mentor.
Mentor participants must be active members within LLAMA. Mentors are
required to attend the Annual Conference in Chicago to participate in the
program's formal orientation and to meet their mentee.
Both mentors and mentees submit biographical and career information to
assist in the matching process. Matched duos meet at a reception and
orientation during the annual conference and continue their mentoring
relationship throughout the 10 month period following the conference.
The program is limited to 25 mentee/mentor duos per year, so early
application is encouraged.
Applications for mentee and mentor candidates are being accepted through
December 1st, 2008 and can be accessed online
