SBE Kicks Off First Mentoring Program

Participants are comprised of 32 mentees and 18 mentors

INDIANAPOLIS � Assignments have been doled out and the mentoring has hopefully begun for participants in the first year-longSBEMentorship program, which teams up broadcast engineers who are new to the field with a seasoned colleague who can share his or her knowledge.

The inaugural launch program attracted 32 mentees and 18 mentors, with many mentors doubling up. Mentees were paired with mentors based on mutual experiences and relevant career goals.

�This program provides a fast-track for those SBE members who are new to broadcast engineering to gain practical insight and knowledge from some of our more experienced SBE members. Through this, we are able to tap the knowledge resource to grow an engineering talent resource. I extend a personal thanks to the volunteer mentors who are participating in the SBE Mentor Program,� said SBE President Jerry Massey, CPBE, 8-VSB, AMD, DRB, CBNT.

The Mentor Committee is co-chaired by SBE board members Jeff Keith, CPBE, and Eric Schecter, CBRE.

SBE has more than 5,000 members, which means there is certainly a large pool to grow this program.
