The ILCMA Mentor Match program reflects ILCMA’s commitment to developing the next generation of local government management professionals. Mentor Match is the latest addition to an expanding line-up of our services to support members’ professional development needs. It is an online tool – including a searchable database – that facilitates the establishment of mentoring relationships. It is user-driven, allowing registered Mentees to search among registered Mentors using specified criteria to find individuals whose experience and expertise match areas in which they wish to be mentored. Likewise, registered Mentors can search for and identify potential Mentees.
Why be a Mentee?
Mentees gain encouragement and guidance for their careers, and mentors gain deeper insights into their own careers and the satisfaction of helping others.
Mentoring offers value for people at any career stage, and everyone can benefit from mentors who help them see their situation and opportunities from a fresh perspective; even successful executives seek out mentoring. Mentors are encouraged to share expertise, insight, and experiences from their life’s work to help others negotiate their own career paths, overcome obstacles, reinvigorate their passion, and plan next steps.
