Start the process:
The Mentor Council is an exciting program offered by the CMA for the benefit of its members.
The Mentor Council consists of CMA members who are considered leaders in the industry because they are up on the latest technology and methods. Mentors have experience presenting seminars at industry gatherings and writing articles for the trade press on matters relating running a successful and profitable business.
A member who wants to receive insights into problems they may be experiencing in their business would contact the Council for a consultation. To start the process, a member fills out the form below, and then a determination is made by the Council to pair the member with a Mentor that has experience in a similar business situation. After a few emails from the Mentor clarifying what the member hopes to accomplish with the session, a phone conference is scheduled. The phone conference typically lasts an hour to an hour and a half, and follow up calls may be made to monitor the member’s progress.
The goal of the Mentor Council is to engage new and existing CMA members through one-on-one interaction with other members in the group. This interaction often leads to long-lasting friendships among members.
