Association Mentorship Recruitment Initiatives
SCMA has launched an on-line mentorship program in partnership with an organization called MentorCity. The link is behind our membership portal, so can’t be shared, but here is the link to our partner’s web-site. We’ve been very happy with the program and 6 months after launch had 288 members registered and 102 mentor/mentee relationships established.
Association Membership Retention Initiatives
SCMA’s SCMP designation is our core retention initiative. Designation holders must remain members in good standing to retain the SCMP designation and over half of our members hold the designation.
