Dear NAMIC Supporter:

In celebration of National Mentoring Month, NAMIC has launched a new online mentoring platform.  The platform provides  L. Patrick Mellon Mentorship Program  mentors and mentees with the necessary resources to build an effective and efficient relationship.
In the words of Academy Award Winning Director, Spike Lee, while delivering a keynote address at the 29th Annual NAMIC Conference -  "If you're not mentoring somebody...uh oh, uh oh now. If you're not mentoring somebody, you're not doing your job."
Create your profile today and join the movement of expanding boundaries and opening a world of possibilities for the next generation of leaders.  You must be a current NAMIC member to enroll as a mentee. Industry executives are encouraged to serve as mentors (membership is not required).
