    Affiliate Summit Mentor Program
    In response to some of the feedback here about the last Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas, Affiliate Summit is starting up a Mentor Program where Affiliate Summit veterans will team up with first timers to help them get the most out of the conference.

    The Affiliate Summit Mentor Program is being headed up by affiliate Teresa Caldwell.

    Mentors will be asked to have a 15 minute call and/or email exchange leading up to the conference, as well as a breakfast, lunch or dinner during the conference (paid by the person being mentored).

    Additionally, there will be a page on the Affiliate Summit site to recognize mentors and provide a link back to their site, as well as acknowledging their good deeds in the new Affiliate Summit magazine, FeedFront.

    If you'd like to participate, complete the short form at http://blog.affiliatesummit.com/affi...entor-program/

    I am in. Do we get a chance to review the people wanting mentoring at all? I just want to make sure no previously hostile people get assigned to me.

    Yeah, we'll get a process in place so you can approve/deny your match.

    Do the mentored get to approve or deny mentors as well?

    We anticipate having a bigger demand for mentors than there is for people that want to be mentored, so the plan is to assign mentors to those being mentored.

    I would be interested in helping, even without the free food. I'm going to have to look closer to see how much time I think it would require, though. My family will be with me in Boston, and I prioritize family even higher than free food.

    If I qualify, I would like to be a mentor as well.

    We'll be running a booth at AS, but I can make time for a shared meal.

    - What a terrific idea!

    Does a mentor need to have a certain amount of Summit experience? One previous Summit ok?

    Plus, she'll work for fruit. Limes, in particular. In Coronas, of course.

    With this crew I'd probably sign up to be mentored just for the experience of dining with y'all.

    I'm with Rexanne I think this is a great idea, and I have mentored more than a few people at past summits already. Ask the CafePress crew that surrounded me at 2 Summits Mentoring 10-15 people at each was a challenge that was well worth the time and effort.

    I'll sign up as a mentor in January for ASW. I am most likely not attending Boston (the first Summit I have missed since 2005! *sniffle*)

    If anyone chooses Connie as a mentor, they should at least also invite Donuts along.

    This way they get both sides of the story: Connie's way... and the GOOD way

    I want Connie as my mentor!!!! Am I eligible??????? Sorry Connie that I am not a young hot man, but hey I am thinking you could mentor me by going to a few places where we can meet a some young hot men, with washboard stomachs....Johnny Dep look a likes will work fine for me....If the rules are that you are only able to get a mentor if it is your first summit, then what about pairing up mentors? If so I still want to be with Connie....
