The Mentoring Program is designed to help make new conference attendees feel more at ease, highlight membership benefits and create networking opportunities. Prior to each annual conference, a call goes out on NASIG-L for experienced NASIG attendees to sign up as mentors. Mentors are matched with first-time conference attendees, including grant winners. Mentors and their partners meet at the First-timers reception at the beginning of the conference.
Announcement about the program goes out a month before the conference. Sign-up should be complete 2 weeks before the conference. Assignments are completed within several days after the sign-up deadline. Reminder about online-evaluation form sent out to NASIG-L a month after the conference.
