The 501c/Association Mentoring Network (AMN) is a volunteer-founded and run network of professionals working in and serving the 501c/association community. The AMN provides connections for those seeking to mentor or be mentored.

Our Mission
The mission of the Association Mentoring Network is to connect 501c/association professionals across the spectrum of experience to share experience, knowledge, and wisdom in support of those dedicating their careers to the service of 501c organizations.

Our Values
The AMN believes that the sharing of knowledge and experience creates a better, more promising future for the profession of 501c/association management. Mentoring is a noble endeavor that benefits both the mentor and the mentee in a process of shared learning and professional growth.

By working across generations, we believe that society will benefit through improved association performance because of the dovetailing of experience with new ideas that creates well-rounded 501c/Association Management Professionals in the future.

We believe in “paying it forward.” We encourage those who have been mentored to become a mentor.

We believe in Micro-Mentoring. Everyone can mentor whether it is a five minutes conversation, or it is a five years process. Success is found in the sharing of knowledge with those who seek it.

What We Do
The AMN creates a network of 501c/association professionals, gathers information about how they want to participate, and then supports the creation of mentor/mentee relationships. These relationships can last a short time or become a relationship that lasts a lifetime.

Mentors and Mentees create their own relationship and process after deciding they are a match. There is no contract or other legal obligation; we ask Mentors and Mentees to develop an action plan together that outlines how often they will meet, how they will meet (virtually or in person), and what their goals are for the process.

The AMN is hosted by The 501c League; membership is not currently required. However: this will change on July 1, 2019 when the AMN becomes a member benefit of the League. Please see the news at the top of this page for more information. 

Joining the AMN provides access to the Mentoring Forum.
