The conference will be held in the Student Union Building, situated on UNM’s main campus, from Wednesday, October 24 thru Friday, October 26 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This year’s conference theme is “Facilitating Developmental Relationships for Success” and calls for proposals that critically and innovatively analyze different types of developmental relationships and how they contribute to the long-term success and prosperity of an individual. The conference will allow professionals from a multitude of disciplines to share valuable insights that contribute to the future of mentoring.
