We are excited to share an opportunity to join our mentorship program connecting students, young and veteran alumni members to grow the next generation of our industry.   This program will create opportunities for members to engage in small groups, or one-on-one settings, to share experiences and perspectives, ask for advice, and build a stronger CM community.

Students and Young alumni will benefit having 1-on-1 interactions from veteran alumni with insight and guidance. Having a mentor outside your organization can stimulate more genuine conversations around challenges and solutions. Mentors too can benefit understanding different perspectives and expectations from the younger group. We anticipate this program strengthening the CMAC relationship with the students who are graduating and recent graduates. which will lead to enhancing our industry and Cal Poly!

Please use the following links to register for the program. Registration will capture enough information to observe common interest groups. Mentees will be connected with recommended Mentors through periodical virtual calls
