Forum Mentor Responsibilities

Prior to each new Forum member's first Forum meeting, he or she is assigned a mentor ‒ an existing Forum member. Mentor responsibilities include:

  • Calling new members to welcome them, share a personal perspective on Forum membership and meeting experiences, and give them a brief overview of their role as an SEA or LEA representative;
  • Answering any questions the new member has about the Forum; and
  • Attending the new member orientation session at their mentee's first Forum meeting.
