SCN Associate Mentors met on Thursday, January 23 for their first Learning Circle meeting of 2020. Several joined via Zoom which has been a valuable tool for connecting and building the SCN Associate Relationship. Mentors shared their excitement for the new SCN Associate Formation Process: the flexibility of the process and how it has impacted both the Mentor and Candidate. Also, this was the first time Mentors gathered for discussion after the Initial Formation Study Guide Accountability Checklist was introduced in the Fall. There are currently twelve SCN Associate Candidates in Formation.
