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 2017/2018 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 Matches: We will pair 1 mentor with 1 mentee. Mentors will have the opportunity to review the Mentee applications and choose the top 4 mentees who’s career path goals best match their skill set. We will do our best to match you with one of your top 4.  


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.
  • Mentors:  It is your responsibility to contact the Mentee to schedule appointments.
  • Mentees: it is your responsibility to come to the meeting prepared to lead the conversation about what you would like to get out of the meeting.
  • Our hope is that Mentors and Mentees are able to meet once a month.
  • Do your very best to attend the three Mentor Events held by the BOMA Emerging Professionals Group. Please see the program schedule for details.
  • Reach out to your Liaison if you have any questions or concerns.
