AICCM Mentorship Program

The Emerging Conservators SIG Mentorship Program will be running in 2021. Please keep an eye out for expressions of interest call-out later in the year.

A great opportunity for mentees to ask questions and receive valuable feedback on treatment, research, conference presenting, project management or other professional skills. Mentors meet new members of the profession and give back to the field by sharing their valued experience. They additionally receive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points towards their AICCM professional membership.

The mentorship program runs for three consecutive months beginning this calendar year, at a time that suits you, and requires a minimum time commitment of one hour per fortnight. The program requires mentees to submit a short proposal to your mentor, and a mentor/mentee acquittal on completion (see more information here).

Open to all AICCM members.
