Mentoring Program 2019-2020

Thank you to everyone who applied - 2020/2021 mentee applications will be made available soon!

This year-long program is designed for aspiring chief business officers (CBOs) and aspiring chief financial officers (CFOs) whose next career step could be CBO or CFO of an institution of higher education. WACUBO intentionally targets this group because, when the next "higher up" is the college or university CFO or CBO, it can be challenging to find a mentor.

Mentees will be matched one-to-one with experienced, senior-level CBOs/CFOs who will serve as mentors.

The WACUBO Mentoring Program builds bench strength in those headed for CBO and CFO roles by supporting their professional development and through leveraging the expertise and talent of senior CBOs and CFOs in the region.

2019/2020 mentees have already been selected and can look forward to the following: 

  • Orientation workshop, in person: Sunday, May 5, 2019 in Vancouver, BC, prior to the Annual Conference.
  • Monthly virtual one-on-one mentor/mentee meetings: May 2019-April 2020; timing to be arranged between the mentor and mentee.
  • Closing workshop, in person: Sunday, April 26, 2020 in Las Vegas, NV, prior to Annual Conference.

Throughout the year-long WACUBO Mentoring Program, mentees will participate in regular mentoring sessions with a senior level mentor, and engage in meaningful dialogues on topics such as developing as a leader in higher education, navigating change and transitions, building key relationships, and personal branding.
