Become an ARMA Mentor:
ARMA is looking for additional mentors, as they have about 100 mentees signed up and only about 30 mentors. This is a highly rated member experience, and typically mentors report that they get a lot out of it. Key details: Time commitment is about 1 hour/month, and mentors/mentees must be ARMA members.

Parts 1-5: Reminder, year-round testing is now available! Part 6: The next testing windows are November 4-15, 2019 (Fall) and February 3-14, 2020 (Winter) IRCM
