Open to NEA members the mentoring program brings together small groups seeking mentoring with mentors who have varying levels of professional experience. Everyone involved is able to share experiences, challenges, information, and news of professional opportunities, while growing collectively as professionals.
Roundtables provide an opportunity for members with related interests, positions, or career goals to discuss ideas and issues, to network and socialize, and to take on tasks related to their areas of interest. Roundtables are intended to provide a means of focusing attention on, and promoting discussion of, archives-related subjects outside of NEA's meetings and official activities.
