The Student Mentor Program was initiated in 2009 due to the increase in student participation along with the addition of student activities. Mentors volunteer to be available during the conference if students have questions or need help navigating, or even to introduce them to other industry personnel.

Becoming a mentor is a great way to get students more involved, possibly assist them in acquiring jobs and internship opportunities, or just help them gain a better knowledge of the industry overall.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor please email for more information and to obtain a Mentor Guidelines document.
