Why Topical Mentoring?

In the quest to recruit and retain younger members, how can professional associations increase the value of membership? Mentoring programs directly address the mission of professional associations: to connect industry professionals (or students) and facilitate the exchange of industry knowledge and career (or academic) advice to help members further their professional development. With topical mentoring, members focus on a specific concept and its real-world applications.

Topical mentoring is particularly valuable to students and less experienced professionals. With topical mentoring, you can:

  • Enable members to deepen expertise in narrow topics
  • Improve retention and grow membership
  • Increase engagement among members

For associations, finding and working with a well matched mentor adds hugely to the value of a young person’s membership. This well-networked demographic will then spread the word, making attraction and retention of millennials more effective.End Quote

Software for Topical Mentoring

Facilitate Personalized Matches

Mentees want to deepen their expertise by connecting with a mentor who has the precise experience they seek but it’s time consuming to sift through member profiles on a case-by-case basis to find a good match. With Chronus, there is no need. Our MatchIQ® algorithm and sophisticated filters allow mentees to find the best mentor for their learning needs.

Match Diverse Participants in a Mentoring Program

Measure Program Value

Reaching out to mentoring program participants one-by-one and compiling feedback isn’t a realistic option to understand program impact. With Chronus software, leverage our built-in surveys to get real-time feedback from participants and members.

Impact of a Mentoring Program

Decrease Administration Time

When running a mentoring program isn’t your only job, you need an efficient solution. That’s why Chronus provides automated workflows, self-matching for members, and automated campaigns so you can manage the program in a few hours a month, freeing up time to focus on other mission-critical responsibilities.
