Mentors available to support EDs! Contact us now to participate

February 10, 2016
AFHTO’s Executive Director Mentorship program launched in February 2016 and is in full swing, with over 15 mentor-mentee pairs matched so far. Developed in response to member requests, the purpose of the program is to provide peer support for any member EDs or Administrative Leads who feel they could benefit from it. This includes those who are new to the role and want help getting oriented, experienced EDs who are steering their teams through change, and others who simply feel that they could use the support and guidance of a peer. We’re committed to supporting our mentors through training and network-building, and we make every effort to match mentors and mentees whose teams work in similar environments, taking into consideration geography, size, governance structure, academic or Francophone status, and other characteristics that reflect the diversity of our membership. The program is already starting to bear fruit, with mentors and mentees alike telling us that they have benefited from their relationships. If you feel that you could benefit from the ED Mentorship Program, please contact Bryn Hamilton, AFHTO provincial lead for Governance & Leadership, and we will find a match for you. If you’re looking for a particular kind of support, such as guidance through a particular change or challenge – please let us know.
