Welcome to the PMI-Eastern Iowa Chapter Pilot Mentoring Program!
PMI EIC released our mentorship program shortly after last month's email blast, and we have already received applications for potential mentees and mentors! Thank you!!
The goal is to have 5 pairs (5 mentees + 5 mentors) that we can match in the shortest time possible so they can start interacting about what they want to learn. We need just one more mentor to complete pairing!
The Mentoring Program, which is available for chapter members, pairs experienced PMP-certified project managers with individuals who are new to the project management profession or looking to expand their knowledge in a specific area. This is a new program for the Chapter in 2021.
We have introduced this pilot mentorship program to share knowledge and experiences, so we can be the best project managers we can be.
The mentorship program will include chapter members as mentors, mentees, or both. While getting involved, chapter members can enjoy sharing or learning many varied topics.
Not only can you make an impact on someone's life, or learn something new that you can immediately apply on your projects, you can also earn PDUs. As a mentor or as a mentee, you earn one PDU each for each hour spent working together.
Let us know what your interests are, and we will match you up with someone who is seeking knowledge, or someone who can provide their experiences.
Thank you for the interest!
