APEGGA recognizes the benefit to society of mentoring, and how it supports the goals of the Association. The transfer of skills and knowledge from experienced professionals to less experienced members of the Association provides continuity, successional management, and continued learning for all involved. Mentoring empowers less experienced members with skills they may traditionally have acquired through trial and error.
All members of the Association are encouraged to be actively involved in mentoring activities, either as mentors or protégés. To that end, the Association is committed to assisting its members by facilitating the formation of effective mentoring relationships. This document is designed to provide Association members with an introductory guide to mentorship. It should not be used as the only resource. There is an accompanying orientation seminar, and APEGGA encourages you to consult the print and electronic references listed in Appendix 1.
Current business magazines and journals such as Fast Company, Fortune, Business Week, and Entrepreneur frequently include material on mentoring. There are also 'technical' publications for human resource professionals such as Performance Improvement and Training and Development. Colleagues in other professional associations and provinces are also excellent sources of background and current material on mentoring.
All members are reminded to conduct themselves at the highest professional levels when dealing with other APEGGA members, as well as non-members. Everyone should be aware that the mentoring program outlined here focuses on non-technical aspects of professional practice/life, and that the confidence of employers remains foremost. All persons involved with mentoring activities outside their own employment situations should notify their employer, and establish and document their employer's approval. Each individual is bound to protect the proprietary information of their respective businesses.
