Plan to attend the very popular and often sold-out Speed Mentoring event.  ASCPT recognizes that all members, regardless of career stage, have a unique perspective to share, and all members can benefit from peer-to-peer learning opportunities. Pre-registration for this session is required if you’d like to be a mentee; you do not need to register if you’d like to serve in the mentor role. This event is a one-off opportunity for 1:1 consultation with other members. There are no conditions to serving in either role, and both experiences are sure to be rewarding! 

If you are interested in being a mentor, please contact meetings@ascpt.org.
