Representatives from member institutions are warmly invited to express their interest in establishing this new Reference Group.

  • Contributing development of training and support materials and related promotions, reports, publications,
  • Bringing enthusiasm and a diversity of experiences and perspectives for developing individuals through becoming a mentee or a mentor.
