The NAPR mentoring program is exclusively for members in good standing. Members will be able to interact confidentially with a select group of individuals selected for their knowledge and passion for the industry. NAPR members will have access to these mentors to seek advice and guidance in starting, growing, maintaining and in many other aspects of their business. The mentors are listed below with any relevant information for instance if they have a particular niche or specialty.
Members will be able to submit a brief request through the website. Please include some background information concerning the type of assistance you are seeking. A board member or mentor will then contact you with any further questions and to arrange the mentoring for you.
Any members who feel they have something to offer the mentorship program and would like to participate are encouraged to contact the association office to express your interest. We will contact you to discuss. Mentorship is a great opportunity to give back to your profession. It is also a way to meet others in the industry, forge lasting friendships and add to your network.
