Support the ICA’s New Professionals – Become a Mentor!

The ICA welcomes applications from mid-career and senior records and archives professionals from around the world to serve as Mentors for the New Professionals Programme

The Mentor commits about 4-8 hours a month to liaise with and support a New Professional over the period in which the New Professional is considered active. We welcome applications from any ICA members – working, volunteer, or retired – who have an interest in supporting New Professionals. These mid-career professionals can offer advice on archival and records management questions and also on more practical career matters, such as planning career moves, applying for positions, and identifying opportunities for further training.  

Mentors must be ICA members or work for institutions that hold ICA membership. To facilitate communications with this year's cohort of New Professionals, we encourage applications from potential Mentors who are comfortable speaking and writing in English and/or French. 

Full details about the Mentorship programme and the application process can be found at

We hope to confirm the 2020-2021 group of New Professionals and Mentors in September/October 2020. Please apply before October 12, 2020.
