Mentor Program

NABPAC Mentor Program

The NABPAC Mentor Program provides members with assistance in a wide variety of areas, from day-to-day PAC management to fundraising, compliance, strategic planning and career development. Multiple individuals from NABPAC member organizations can participate in the Mentor Program and will be individually matched with the NABPAC mentor that best fits their needs.

The formal mentor relationship through this free service is designed for a six (6) month duration, but this experience will forge lasting friendships and build on the long history of peer-to-peer advising for which NABPAC is known.
