About the program:

While this year's mentorship program may look a little different, during this time of uncertainty, we want to ensure the industry stays connected now more than ever. As such, we are pleased to launch the second year of the CAEM Mentorship Program. 

After a successful inaugural year of the CAEM Mentorship Program, CAEM is pleased to expand the program to not only foster mentor/mentee relationships, but enable peer-to-peer relationships. This year, mentee and mentor applicants will have the ability to select whether they'd prefer to be partnered with a mentor, mentee, or both! In facilitating a peer-to-peer program, we hope this fosters a greater sense of community during these unprecedented times.

Activate your event and exposition career with CAEM! The 2020 CAEM Mentorship Program will match leaders in Canada's event and exposition community with emerging business professionals to inspire and enable them to become the event and exposition leaders of tomorrow!

To qualify you:

  • Must have less than 4 years experience in the industry or other business-related role;
  • Must identify as a high-potential employee;
  • Must provide a resume;
  • Must provide a reference from your current employer, instructor or industry professional;
  • Optional: submit a video no longer than two (2) minutes on why YOU should be a CAEM mentee;
  • Must be passionate about the events and exposition industry!

Time Commitment:
The structure of the program is such that each mentor and mentee will interact for a minimum 12 hours over the course of the year (1 hour per month). These hours could be completed in-person, over the phone, through email or other electronic means.
