The League’s Mentorship Committee held its spring event to wrap up the 2017-2018 year with 27 people in attendance at Whisk and Measure in March.
The night kicked off with drinks from the espresso bar, followed by break-out sessions.
Half of the participants had an opportunity to mix and mingle with other members, while the other half learned to decorate sugar cookies with buttercream frosting.
It was an especially “sweet” lesson of three different floral designs.
The committee received great feedback from the attendees on the event.
“This is why I love the mentorship program,” said Active member Lauren Anderson. “It gives you more touch points, more opportunities to connect with other people in the League. That’s why I joined my first active year.”
Committee leaders tried a different approach in planning the event. Instead of a straight social, the committee offered a new activity at a small business, leading to a higher attendance. Plus, this was a great, hands-on activity to support a local business.
Overall, this year was successful with increased participation and great feedback for more improvements.
“I’ve really enjoyed my mentorship experience,” said active member Kimberly Johnston. “It’s been great to connect with another League member and have another familiar face at League events.”
The committee looks forward to growing participation and is excited to see how many more relationships are able to develop with a longer mentorship year, as the 2018-2019 mentorship year will begin in June.
