Are you looking to have more one-on-one time with a club management professional? If you answered yes, this program is for you! Mentors and mentees will be paired a few weeks prior to heading to Orlando to get to know one another and come up with a game plan for your time together at Conference. Schedule Royal Cup coffee breaks, a lunch or two, a “field trip” to the Club Business Expo, and/or make suggestions for which education sessions to attend based on interests and learning opportunities… the possibilities are endless!
