Apply to take part in the relaunch of the New England Archivists Mentoring Program. This year-long program will begin in March 2017. Applications and more information are available on the NEA website.

The program is structured in several Mentoring Circles, small groups that consist of four to six mentees and two mentors. Diverging from the traditional one-on-one mentoring model, the NEA Mentoring Program aims to:
-- Encourage the exchange of experiences, challenges, and opportunities to facilitate goal-setting for career and personal development
-- Build competence and character to reach those goals
-- Foster self-confidence, communication skills, and collective growth

Mentors and mentees are matched to a circle depending on their interests, goals, and availability. The application process includes an initial survey to determine everyone’s interests and support the initial matching. All participants should be current NEA members able to commit to a full cycle of the program (seven to nine months).

Please visit the NEA Mentoring page on the NEA website to learn more about the program and to apply to join. Applications will be accepted through February 15, 2017, and applicants will receive further information by March 8, 2017.

Help us promote the event by printing and posting the flyer in your staff kitchen or break room. If you have any questions about the program, please contact NEA Membership Committee Co-Chairs Pam Hopkins ( and Heather Mumford (
