(Emerging Conservation Professionals) Luncheon

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

AIC’s Emerging Conservation Professionals Network (ECPN) and CAC’s Emerging Conservators Committee (ECC) are hosting a mentorship and networking luncheon. The luncheon is open to both emerging and established conservators with the specific intent to foster mentorships. After registering for the event and before the meeting, participants will be asked to complete a questionnaire on their career interests and experiences. ECPN and ECC will use the information provided by the questionnaires to arrange thoughtful seating that pairs potential mentor and mentees at the tables. While participants enjoy a provided lunch, speakers will address the group to give tips and advice on how to cultivate mentorships throughout their careers. Afterwards, each table will be prompted to discuss provided topics, in the hopes of encouraging people to find mentors/mentees at their site. Since the luncheon occurs on the first day of conference, participants will have the opportunity to continue discussions throughout the remainder of the meeting.
