JEA Mentoring Committee co-chair

Just two weeks ago, more than 25 of us in the mentoring program — mentors and Mentor Committee members — were in Washington, D.C. for the JEA/NSPA convetion.

We’ve asked Peggy Gregory, who was one of the coordinators for the Mentor Forum, to share a summary of the activities from the forum. Bill Flechtner, another of the coordinators, has provided photos.

The discussion of the day’s activities and other mentor activities during the convention will be divided into several individual blog posts. We thought this would be a good way to let those who weren’t able to attend to share in what happened.

We’d encourage those who attended to post comments to the blog posts, adding information about an activity, sharing a comment about what you learned or an observation you had.
