Mentorship Program Survey

Greetings NABA family! 

In order to continue to build upon NABA’s motto of “Lifting As We Climb”, we are excited to inform you that we will be launching a mentoring initiative in the upcoming months specifically for the members of the NABA Metro DC chapter! The purpose of the mentoring initiative will be to:

  • Deepen the professional and personal relationships among members.
  • Bridge the generational gap between tenured professionals and those who are new to the professional landscape.
  • Increase the interaction and involvement of all members beyond just our regular meetings and events.
  • Add value to the Metro DC Chapter and NABA as a whole for current and prospective members.

To launch the program, we are seeking both mentors and mentees within the chapter. For the members that are willing to be designated mentors and for those looking for a mentor, we ask that you please complete the quick applications below!
