IAIP Mentoring Program


Take advantage of this priceless IAIP member benefit – the opportunity to be matched with an experienced member to serve as your mentor. Areas of focus may include (but are certainly not limited to) career path coaching, how to “Go All In” with IAIP, networking skills, and leadership development!  

Program Goals

1. acquaint new members with the structure and benefits of IAIP from the International level down to the local or MAL level (or how to “Go All In” with IAIP!)
2. assist more seasoned members with further refining specific skills, learning more about a particular aspect of the insurance industry, gaining a new designation, or learning a new technical skill. 
3. provide helpful feedback that will encourage the member to build upon and perhaps revitalize the skills they already possess

As a mentor, you are a guide, role model, and resource. Take this opportunity to share your association and professional experiences by advising, influencing and supporting new members.

A mentor/mentee relationship provides many opportunities, offers many challenges, and has many rewards. Experience them for yourself.
