Mentorship Programs for Associations – Building a Highly Successful Program to Engage and Retain Your Members
Associations are increasingly aware of the potential value of association-led mentorship programs. Current members find a reason to stay, young industry entrants a reason to join, and leadership capabilities are cultivated within the association itself and the industry as a whole. Industry or association goals such as creating highly engaged members or perceived value for the cost of yearly membership are made easier to achieve. Mid-late career members are also brought back into activity within the membership by participating mentors.
There is resounding agreement that mentorship programs add value. Running a program that fails is brand damaging, but running a successful mentoring program can garner results that no other program in the membership service can. Too many associations are eyeing the benefits of mentoring but telling themselves they can’t afford it or don’t know how to implement one. In this webinar, we will unpack how to implement a highly effective program that achieves results such as 90% satisfaction rates, 46% of mentees saying it’s one of the best things they’ve done in their careers and 100% of participants saying they would participate again and/or recommend to others. What’s more, we will show you how to do so with a limited budget.
Join Alex Richardson, CEO and Founder of Art of Mentoring as he explains the ways his team help associations and member-based organizations to achieve their goals and enrich the value of their membership. Drawing on existing case studies and examples, Alex will take a look into how other associations have achieved remarkable success using strategic mentoring, and what sets them apart from other types of mentorship programs.
