Good evening brothers! It's #membershipmonday just in time for the impending snow!

Our focus over the last week or so shifted from the newest members of our family to the more experienced. Continuing that trend, tonight let's talk about the importance of mentoring.

Speaking generally, the most well-known example of mentoring in APO is the big/little relationship. A big imparts their wisdom, guidance, and support to their little. It's the first impression for a pledge to see how our family works while simultaneously learning how to hopefully take on the role themselves in subsequent semesters should they cross.

But that's not the only time we see mentoring happen. We see it when a new E board is elected and officer transition occurs. We see it when brothers collaborate. When signature projects are passed down, when information is exchanged, when knowledge is shared, that's mentoring. Anyone can be a mentor just as anyone can be mentored.

Being a mentor is one of the most important responsibilities we have as brothers. It's a key to help retain your brothers because mentoring provides guidance, provides support, provides purpose. Funny thing is, that's not the best part. You know what the best part is? It's seeing those whom we mentor thrive and succeed. Guiding and encouraging our fellow brothers are just a few of the ways we can help keep our family together, invested, and engaged. It's a never-ending responsibility that is necessary but deeply rewarding.

That's all for now peeps. Come back next week for another installment! In the meantime, be safe in this crazy weather and feel free to send questions our way!
