3.  <Kowin Mentor Club> launched with Senator Martin

On February 15th, our 22 mentors of the Mentorship Leadership conference 2011 gathered at the Fasken Martineau reception hall, famous law firm located in downtown. Senator Yonah Martin came from Ottawa specially to support this event. KOWIN Montreal President Dr. Seong-Sook Yim and Secretary general Jae-Ran Lee were also presented. President Yim’s proposal to launch a <Kowin Mentor Club> was unanimously passed. The first program of the <Mentor Club> is the “Dinner with Mentors/Causerie avec mentors”. Through this program, student youth and next generation members  will have a chance to meet the mentors in a informal context and have career counseling sessions. Per session, a group of 4 or 5 students can attend to dinner with a mentor and have a time to network while having dinner together. Proposed meeting times: Every 2nd Wednesday or Thursday of each month starting April 2012. Now online registration for “Dinner with Mentors” is opened on the Kowin website where you can also see the complete list of mentors in the section Kowin Event- next generation.

If you are interested in Dinner with Mentors (Causerie avec Mentors) please do registration by clicking the linkhttp://www.kowinmontreal.com/xe/dwm.  Sponsors providing the venue for this  program would have a chance to promote their brand names with logo on the Kowin’s website for a year. If you have any questions regarding the conference, please contact our staff atkowinmtl@gmail.com; or 438-885-9216.
