Mentorship Pods

Mentoring is beneficial for people at every level of choral experience. Mentorship Pods will connect members of the profession at every level—from students to retirees—in an effort to share experiences and advice. The Pods will consist of one student member, one person having three or fewer years of experience in the field, one person having 3-10 years in the field, one person having 10-25 years of experience, and one person having 25 or more years of experience and who may be retired.
