AWMI Mentoring Program
AWMI is proud to offer a formal, broad-based mentoring program that allows us to match AWMI members with a mentor on a short-term/ad-hoc (< 3 months) or long-term (3 months or greater) basis. The program is open to all AWMI members in good standing (defined as dues paid in the current year).
