The Society has a mentor program for new CPAs, to provide a contact person within the profession. It's a way to learn about the profession, how to get involved, career ideas, etc. To participate, as a mentor or a new CPA, simply call the Society office at 701-775-7100. To participate, the mentee and mentor are to be members or affiliates.
If an ongoing committee role doesn't sound right for you, there are other ways to be of service to your profession - on your own schedule -- such as writing an item for the web or newsletter, being a "host" for a new CPA at Convention, or contacting nonmembers to encourage joining.
