TAPA Mentor Match Program

The TAPA Mentor Match returns for 2021!

About the Program


TAPA 2021 Mentor Match Registration is here


The mission of the Tennessee Chapter's Mentor Match is to bridge the gap between planning students, entry-level planners and established planning professionals by providing connection opportunities. The program seeks to expand the professional network of planners within Tennessee and increase TAPA membership and participation. 


Mentor and mentee pairs will be matched based on interests and location. Matches will meet for a mandatory one-time meeting scheduled during the Spring conference. Some of the pairs may choose to continue the relationship beyond the conference and its ultimately up to the mentor and mentee to determine any future meetings or communication. To get the most out of the program, however, monthly communication is recommended.

  • Be able to attend an orientation session at the TAPA Spring Conference on February 26, 2021. The timeframe for completing the mentor-mentee relationship is one year, during which two meetings are required.
