CSCCa Mentoring Booklet Revisions Forum

A volunteer mentoring booklet committee was tasked with reviewing, updating, and improving the mentoring booklet. The committee is asking all approved CSCCa mentors to attend this meeting for a review of the updates, and more importantly have a dialog with the panel about the changes. As our profession grows and our industry evolves, we must remain diligent in continually self-evaluating and making improvements to our internship program. We need your feedback and input to assist us in continuing to be the gold standard in the collegiate strength and conditioning profession.
