Career Advancement and Mentorship Program

The Career Advancement and Mentorship (CAM) Program sponsored by the Northeastern Agricultural and Resource Economics Association (NAREA) is a mentoring program held in concert with the NAREA Annual Meeting.  The CAM program is a unique opportunity for pre-tenured faculty and early career scholars to develop and enhance professional networks, receive one-to-one mentoring from an experienced member within the environmental and agricultural economics community, and to attend a dinner and panel session on issues of concern to early career scholars.

The CAM program consists of two parts:
1) Dinner and panel session to be held during the NAREA Annual Meeting. There is no fee for this program, but space is limited.
2) A biennial year-long one-on-one mentoring program held on odd years.  Even years will serve as cohort reunions and opportunities to review on year-long accomplishments and debrief on program goals.

Those interested in attending the 2013 dinner and panel session will be able to register for the CAM program dinner at the time they register for the NAREA Annual Meeting. Those interested in the 2013-2014 year-long mentoring program will need to apply by April 30, 2013. We expect that up to 10 mentors and mentees will participate in the mentoring part of the program, and that matching will be done based on mentor and mentee preferences and interests.  We hope to include pre-tenured faculty at universities and researchers involved in outreach at both governmental and non-governmental organizations in this program.  Space in both the CAM program dinner and the year-long mentoring program is limited.
