Subject: [keycontacts] Will you be a mentor?
I am serving as the SAA mentoring program coordinator for the Membership Committee. The program matches a new archivist with an archivist who has been in the field for a while and is willing to serve as a resource person to offer advice and share work experiences. The time commitment is very manageable, and it is usually e-mailing or speaking over the phone once a month or more often depending on the mentor and protegé. Sometimes there is a possibility of meeting in person if both persons
live or work in the same area, but this is entirely up to them.
I am currently trying to find prospective mentors for new archivists from all over the USA. One requirement is that both mentors and protégés are current SAA members. More description about the Mentoring Program is available on the SAA website at
Don't be shy! You might think you don't have anything to offer, but the
truth is that your advice and experience is worth millions to someone
that's just starting out. Don't you wish you'd had a mentor too?
Interested? Have any questions? Comments? Concerns?
