Mentor Program

Mentoring is an important feature of the Arts Northwest Conference. It is a connection that allows newer colleagues to get the most out of their conference experience as more seasoned attendees share their wisdom and lend some support. Arts Northwest will match first-time attendees and mentors before the conference. Mentors are expected to attend the New Colleagues / First Timers' Orientation on the first day of the conference and to be available to their assigned person/people throughout the conference.
Please check the appropriate box on the registration form to indicate your desire for a mentor, or your willingness to take on this role or email us at to sign up
