The ANCDS Membership Committee is seeking volunteers to serve as mentors to our 2018 Student Fellows at this year's annual conference.  As a mentor, you would serve as the first encouraging link to our renowned organization, demonstrating to Fellowship recipients the feeling of being welcome in ANCDS through a positive first conference experience.

Through selection, Fellowship awardees receive complimentary conference registration and ANCDS membership for one calendar year.  As a result, many of the selected students will be first time conference attendees.  Each one brings unique experiences and backgrounds to our organization and, as a volunteer mentor, you would be a vital contributor to their successful initiation to ANCDS.  Furthermore, your guidance and expertise will hopefully serve to foster their lifelong ANCDS membership.

Mentors will be invited to attend a Mentor-Fellow Breakfast the morning of the 2018 ANCDS Annual Business and Scientific Meeting on Wednesday, November, 14, 7:00-7:45 am.  During this breakfast, you will have the opportunity to get to know the fellow assigned to you.  We also invite mentors to have lunch with their assigned fellow and to facilitate introductions with other ANCDS members throughout the course of the meeting.

Please notify Membership Committee Chair Jessica Brown, PhD, CCC-SLP, via email at [email protected], if you are interested in participating in this experience and serving as a mentor.
