Practitioner Speed Mentoring
SIOP welcomes all interested practitioners to attend the eighth annual speed-mentoring event, to be held during the 2017 SIOP Annual Conference. This event is also available on a more limited basis to students who are either ABD or in their second year of a terminal Master’s program.
Practitioner Speed-Mentoring Event – Friday, April 28, 2017, 5:00-6:30 pm, Southern Hemisphere IV, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel
Registration will remain open through March 31.
At this speed-mentoring event, practitioners will have the opportunity to participate in two separate 25-minute roundtable discussions with one or two seasoned professionals on predetermined topics of interest. This event is a terrific opportunity for practitioners to seek guidance, knowledge, and wisdom from mentors who have “been there and done that.”
