SMALLER MARKET MIXER ZOOM – 10:00-11:30a

The past has seen festive and successful NATAS Mixers in Sacramento, Fresno, and Hawaii.  Now, Smaller Markets, it’s your turn!  We’ll “gather” with Eureka, Redding, Chico, Monterey, Salinas industry professionals at 10am on Saturday, January 23.  As much as we’d like to rub elbows and network in person, the Mixer will be on the familiar Zoom format, to follow COVID-19 protocol.

Lexi Sisk, our Smaller Markets Vice President, will moderate the Mixer, introducing representatives from the various markets: Shane Calvert from the Redding / Chico area; Riley Carroll for Eureka; and Chris Carpenter for Monterey / Salinas.

The area reps will lead individual Zoom “Breakout Rooms” by area. There will be a brief time to get reacquainted with people from your region, and time for a discussion on your region’s main concerns, needs, requests, ideas, news, etc. Basically, we want to hear how NATAS can help you.

Afterwards, the three Breakout Rooms will reconvene into the main session and we’ll hear some of the points discussed. A beginning to a ongoing conversation about pertinent issues and activities specific to that region of the Chapter.

“Obviously we hope that Zoom attendees eventually become members of NATAS!” said Chapter Membership Chair Patty Zubov. “But these area-specific mixers are to help regions understand they are part of our bigger Chapter, with about 1200 total members. We’re here to involve and boost everyone!”

There will be a Question & Answer period, and examples of NATAS Member Benefits.

There will be a giveaway of Door Prizes, just like in our in-person Mixers!

The Reno region and the San Francisco Bay Area will be having respective Mixers in the near future. Stay tuned.

MENTOR MATCH UPDATE ZOOM – 11:30a-12:30p

Our Chapter had a Mentorship program in past years – we’re resurrecting it now. The “Mentor Match” web page explains the program further, and contains a Questionnaire to sign up, for both Mentors and Mentees.

January is “National Mentorship Month”!  And it makes sense to follow the Smaller Market Mixer with the update about the Mentor Match program. It’s perfectly suited for smaller market members to take advantage of connecting with our larger market professionals. For Student Members to learn from Small Market professionals as well.

Basically, NATAS connects the Mentee with an appropriate Mentor depending on the discipline needing improvement. The two will agree on times to connect, and approximately how long the Mentorship will last. During this Zoom session, some of our past Mentors and Mentees will describe how it worked successfully for them!

As an example, we’ll play a piece of video and have a Mentor offer comments and advice during the session.

Although the Mentorship program is a Member Benefit, this Double Zoom is open to non-Members as well.
