The NACO Mentorship Program seeks to connect county officials who are new in their role with others in that role who are experts. The program seeks to establish clear and easy to understand communication channels between mentors and mentees, build confidence in the use of resources, and to create ongoing rapport amongst the network.
The mentors and mentees meet virtually once a month to discuss upcoming events, use of tools, opportunities for greater efficiency, and best practices. The groups also stay connected daily via an instant messaging group.
Currently there is an established Mentorship Group for Treasurers and Clerks/Election Commissioners/Registers of Deeds.
