A&AA Section Mentoring Program

At the 2013 ASA meeting in New York, the section council agreed that our members might benefit from having extra resources throughout the academic year, and so we are reviving the section's mentorship program! Thanks to those who carried out the program before.

This mentorship can take place at any time in the calendar year, not specifically at ASA meetings. The section council is considering a separate opportunity for mentoring at the next ASA meeting.

Monday, Aug. 18, 2014 2:00-4:00pm:  Section Mentoring Opportunity

Kusina Ni Tess Restaurant
(237 Ellis St, 94102, very close to the Hilton San Francisco)

At last year’s members’ meeting, attendees requested more in-person mentoring opportunities. Mentors will be on hand to discuss topics that include, but are not limited to, publishing, getting a job, pursuing tenure, teaching, work/family balance, and promotion to full. Please come to learn, share, or just to socialize. Food and drinks/beer will be served, courtesy of the section!

Please RSVP by July 25th.
