The Mentoring Committee has been hard at work creating a program that we think will beneficial to all those who choose to participate as either a mentor or mentee. The program was created from ground up with lots of checks and balances and so it’s taken a little bit longer than we anticipated to get the information out. However, by the time you receive this newsletter, you will have found an email from my professional development account email@example.com with an attachment that includes the mentor or mentee application attached. Please fill out the application and send it back by March 26. The sooner we receive applications back, the sooner we can get the program started! If you have not found the application in your inbox, please check your spam mail and if you still don’t find it, feel free to email me, Cheryl Woehr, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A big thanks to the committee, Willette Neal, Ricardo Nunez and Katerina Salas! We are still looking for a few more people to be on the Mentoring Committee as well as someone to chair it. It’s a great way to meet new people and get more involved in SIETAR USA. If you’re interested, please contact me and I’ll be happy to talk to you about it.
The Ethics Committee has been meeting to review the current SIETAR USA Living Code to make it more inclusive and bring it up to date. Kurt Nemes chairs the committee and several new members have joined, Alan Richter, Bettina Byrd, Luby Ismail in addition to Sandy Fowler and Cheryl Woehr. Once the committee has reviewed the document and suggested changes, it will be brought to a review committee before being presented to SIETAR USA members for more input.
The Webinar Committee has done a fantastic job of recruiting presenters and have programs lined up for the entire year! A big thanks to Carolyn Ryffel, chair of the committee, and members Julie Gaspar-Bates and Sandy Fowler.
