Group Mentoring Program

Enhance Your Professional Development with NEEBC’s Group Mentoring Program For Emerging Benefits Professionals

Introduced in 2014, the primary goal of the program is to help empower emerging benefits professionals by sharing industry knowledge and providing information on the skills needed to succeed. The program provides an informal, relaxed forum in a group setting to discuss real-life business and career challenges with experienced benefits professionals and peers within the NEEBC community. 

Please note that this is not a 1:1 mentoring program that pairs individual emerging benefits professionals with experienced professionals. Sessions are run in a small group setting.


What is an Emerging Benefits Professional?
Our target audience is benefits professionals who have fewer than 10 years of experience in benefits. This includes employers, brokers/consultants and service providers.

What is the NEEBC Group Mentoring Program?

  • A relaxed environment for emerging benefits professionals to learn about important employee benefits topics and the skills required to succeed from leaders in the field and each other.
  • A forum for discussing specific challenges, both business- and career-related in a small group setting with experienced professionals and peers.

    Please note that this is not a 1:1 mentoring program that pairs individual emerging benefits professionals with experienced professionals. Sessions are run in a small group setting.

Where and How Often Will the Group Meet?
Sessions will be held from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm on the 2nd Thursday of the month from March through October in Boston (Copley Square).

Is There a Cost to Participate?
