Are you…
  • New to the public affairs field?
  • A new Council member?
  • Looking for ways to build your skills and advance your career?
  • Someone with experience in the public affairs field?
  • Interested in helping to advance a colleague’s career?
  • Interested in broadening your management experience and people skills?
  • Interested in meeting the future of the profession?

If any of the above applies to you, take advantage of the Council’s Public Affairs Mentoring Program. This service pairs Council members looking for a mentor with experienced professionals in the field.

Being a mentor is a great way to help someone new to the public affairs profession. Mentors will receive guidance on how to be a mentor, as well as Council recognition of their service. To facilitate building a relationship, mentors are asked to commit to participating for one year.


“My mentor, Jennifer Brooks from Northrup Grumman, has been amazing. We meet for regular lunch dates and talk about both of our PACs and ways to improve. She is always responsive on email and has become not only a mentor but a friend. This has been a fantastic program to participate in and has helped the Apollo PAC by leaps and bounds.”
