Mentorship Program

Our Mentorship Program provides members with opportunities for one-on-one coaching and professional development. The program facilitates meaningful connections by matching those new to the municipal sector with more experienced, senior professionals and municipal leaders who can provide professional guidance and support. The program is free and open to all AMCTO members in good standing. 

Goals of the Program

  • Leverage the value of professional local government experience
  • Develop the mentorship capacity of local government professionals
  • Establish meaningful relationships for members and those within the sector

We believe that by guiding and supporting program participants throughout their mentor-mentee relationship, there is an opportunity to build and develop knowledge and practical skills within the sector — allowing for the necessary transferring of tools and expertise to empower the next generation of municipal leaders.
