The Western Central Chapter of APA has been working to develop a mentorship program for chapter members that aims to pair new planners in the field with seasoned planning professionals for professional guidance, networking and personal growth. This program would be similar to the model introduced at the APA National Planning Conference.


If you are interested in participating in the program, please complete one of the forms and return to your state representative listed below. Also, mentees do not have to be a WCC member to participate, so please pass along if you know someone that might be interested in participating.  You will be paired with a mentor from your state. Some facets of the mentorship program remain under development, but we hope to continue to build a platform for communication and professional growth in the coming year that all who are interested are welcome to participate in.  Please feel free to download the applications listed below:
