Developing Leader Mentorship Program

NAIOP Edmonton is proud to open the third annual Developing Leader Mentorship Program, providing Developing Leader members with valuable opportunities for personal and professional growth through focused, one-on-one networking sessions with leaders in the Edmonton commercial real estate community. This program has received incredible feedback from Mentors and Mentees alike since its inception in 2016. 

How it works:

  1. You choose 2 mentors you'd like to talk to

  2. NAIOP sets up mentees with their chosen mentors

  3. Mentees meet with each mentor twice (4 meetings total) between May 1st and August 30th.

  4. The mentee is responsible to schedule dates with the mentor
