TVOC’s mentoring scheme

Thinking of having a go at organising or planning an event, or doing some mapping, but not sure where to start? Or whether you have enough experience? Well help is at hand through the club’s mentoring scheme.

The club has a small team of mentors who can advise and guide you before you decide to take on the role, and also to advise you on how to deal with any problems you come across once you are underway. They will be glad to share with you the benefit of their experiences.

Set out below is a list of mentors (and approximately where they live) in each of the three areas of organising, planning and mapping. From the relevant list, choose a mentor with whom you would like to work – for example one who lives locally to you, or you already know – and then contact them directly. Their contact details will be in the Members List, or if you have mislaid your copy, email the Membership Secretary asking for the details.
