*BCMA Mentorship Applications are now open! *

This is the third year we are running this program as an effort to connect
emerging museum professionals with mid- or late-career professionals, to
help build lasting relationships, and to strengthen connections within the
museum and gallery sector.

The BCMA mentorship program will provide emerging museum professionals
(EMPs) with a loosely structured mentorship pairing with a suitable
professional in a similar field. Currently, the mentorship relationship is
slated to run for approximately eight months (November 2021 to June 2022),
with mentors and mentees ideally meeting about once a month. The BCMA
mentorship program is a member benefit program – i.e. only available to
BCMA members in good standing.

EMPs are commonly described as professionals in the first 10 years of their
career, often in entry-level positions, able to secure only temporary
employment, needing to volunteer for experience, or just entering their
first career position. The group is often categorized as having suitable or
high levels of education but limited experience in their chosen career
paths. EMPs are not considered "young professionals" based on age, but
rather categorized by experience in the field.
