AEJMC Mentorship Program

The Political Communication Interest Group (PCIG) is calling on seasoned conference attendees and first-time attendees to participate in AEJMC’s second mentorship program. The program pairs first-time attendees with mentors who can help them navigate the conference and make the most of their experience at AEJMC. All participants are expected to attend the new member breakfast at the conference. Additionally, mentors also answer questions first-time attendees may have and often introduce them to conference offerings and opportunities.  Participation in the program helps to strengthen respective interest groups and divisions, while providing newcomers with a great opportunity for networking and involvement in the organization. We’re expecting an exciting program in D.C. this year. More than two dozen mentors volunteered at last year’s conference in Chicago and the program continues to grow. As a 2012 mentee, I can attest to what an invaluable opportunity the mentorship program is in terms of meeting new people and becoming a more active member of AEJMC.

First-time attendees wishing to participate in the program and those looking to volunteer as a mentor should contact Jason Turcotte, PCIG membership chair: jturco2@lsu.edu. For more information about the mentorship program, feel free to contact us.
