COE Student and Young Professional Mentor Program

This professional networking program---a joint endeavor of both the A&WMA-UMS and the CSWEA-MN Section---is designed for students and recent graduates to have the opportunity to network and be mentored by an environmental professional at the Upper Midwest Section's annual Conference on the Environment.  For young and established professionals, this is a great opportunity to network with students and recent graduates and introduce them to other professionals at the conference.  Mentors and mentees will meet for the continental breakfast prior to the start of the Welcome and Keynote speakers.  Participants are also encouraged to meet during lunch and other breaks throughout the day.
