#ASAE18 Component Hackathon: Take These Innovative Chapter Ideas, Please!

Membership Hack: Career-Stage Mentorships
Each year, members of the Illinois Park and Recreation Association have the opportunity to apply to IPRA’s ProConnect mentorship program. It works to increase engagement with other members and staff by grouping members based on compatible characteristics, geographic location and career stage. Find out how you can create a similar program at your chapters.
