SGAC Mentorship Program Launches Inaugural Session
SGAC's Young Professionals Committee designed this flexible, virtual program with a singular goal in mind to connect state government affairs professionals across industries, ideas, backgrounds, and demographics.

By joining the program as a mentor, mentee, or both, participants can expect to:
- Create cross-generational and cross-industrial connections with other SGR professionals; - Engage in a semi-structured dialogue with other SGR practitioners by discussing a variety of personal and professional development topics; and - Increase their awareness and understanding of diverse opinions within the state government affairs industry.
