In our 2020 Sales Mentorship program, experienced membership professionals will be matched with less seasoned peers to provide advice on best practices, a sounding board for sales challenges, and recommended resources on all phases of the sales process, goal setting, time management, sales style, and more. The mentor-mentee relationships will be self-governing, with each pair determining a schedule for calls and meeting based on their own schedules and goals.
We expect to work with 6 – 10 mentorship pairs. Applications for mentees are due by January 31, 2020, and the program will run from February – December 2020. There is no cost for the program beyond your ACCE membership dues. Mentors and mentees completing the program will receive 5 CCE credits each for their work.
NEW! The application deadline for sales mentors only has been extended until February 7, 2020. All ACCE members who are apply and are accepted as mentors by this deadline will be entered into a raffle for a FREE ACCE 2020 convention tuition. Applications for both mentors and mentees are below:
