Career Mentoring Lunch with Colleagues

2015 Lunch with PAA Colleagues
Early Career Mentoring


 Thursday, April 30, 2015 ● 12:00-1:30 pm ● Hilton San Diego Bayfront

The PAA Membership Committee and the Association of Population Centers are pleased to announce co-sponsorship of the annual “Lunch with Colleagues and Mentors.”

Are you an advanced graduate student, new Ph.D., post-doc, junior faculty member or professional?  Would you like to talk with other young professionals and more senior mentors to discuss career planning and opportunities in diverse settings? Are you interested in strategies for finding appropriate mentors and collaborators, fulfilling research, publication, teaching, or administrative responsibilities, and balancing other work or non-work commitments?   Come join senior colleagues for lunch on the first day of PAA, and widen your professional networks in an informal setting.

Senior mentor colleagues will be recruited based on participant interest. Lunch groupings will be small (approximately 4-5 people per table) and based on common interests and a desire to create linkages across institutions.

We are able to accommodate up to 40 early professionals and requests will be honored on a first come, first served basis.  Fee for lunch is $20.00.  To register select Career Mentoring Lunch under “Events” on the online pre-registration formSOLD OUT!
