Register your interest in becoming a mentor or mentee in the Emerging Conservators SIG Mentorship Program for 2023!

This is 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. We hope this program can expand each participant’s network and be the catalyst for longer-term relationships.

This year we are changing the mentorship program to make it more accessible and manageable for those involved. As such, the casual conversations between mentors and mentees will be the main focus.

Mentors will still be able to offer advice on conservation treatment, research, paper submissions, project management, presentations, business skills, environmental and sustainability projects. However, the project aspect has been discontinued due to time constraints.

If you have a previous mentor/mentee connection and an incomplete project from the 2022 Program that you both wish to continue, we can accommodate this (more details in the form).

Please reach out if you have any questions.
