Mentor Program Overview

Program Goals:

What we have learned from Mentor programs is that mentees learn from mentors and vice versa. We all have a unique sets of skills, unique strengths and weaknesses, differing levels of experience depending on the task at hand and the ability to teach others and learn new things. Sharing information and ideas and discussing challenges in an environment of trust is how we grow. The goal of this program is to build knowledge, foster learning and connect people within our industry.


What is new for the 2016/2017 Program Year?

We have made a few changes this year to align with our program goals and with what we have learned from past participants about the strengths of our mentor program.


  • Mentor Pods: Mentor pods will consist of four people, two who are new to the industry and two who have had more experience. The idea is for Mentor groups to set up a reoccurring meeting time each month.  Those who are able to make the meeting will attend.
  • Monthly emails from The Liaison:  We will send out monthly emails to the group with videos and articles that can be a starting point for discussion.



  • Be an active participant of the program.
  • Please make an effort to reach out to those in your mentor pod to create meeting times that work for the group, and do your very best to follow-though with attending the meeting. The goal is for mentor pods to meet once a month.
  • Do your very best to attend the four Mentor Events held by the BOMA Emerging Professionals Group that will include both an educational piece and networking experience. Please see the program schedule for details.
  • Reach out to your Liaison if you have any questions or concerns.
