SPSSCS New Members and “Mentors for New Members/First Time Attendees” Breakfast
On Thursday, May 16, a New Member/First Time Attendee Meeting will be held during the continental breakfast at 7:30am – 8:00am. This will be a wonderful opportunity for SPSSCS Member Mentors and Mentees to meet, as well as to interact with the Board of Directors and get to know more about the organization. Our goal is to create a welcoming environment and facilitate long-lasting professional relationships and friendships.

Please sign-up on the Registration Form, if you would like to serve as a “Meeting Mentor” (SPSSCS Members Only) or if you are a new member or first-time attendee and would like to be a “Mentee” (members or non-members). Our administrative staff will pair everyone together and send notification to both the Mentors and Mentees explaining who their contact person is and how to meet her or him in New Orleans.
