RBMS "Buddy" Program

The Buddy Program, sponsored by the Membership and Professional Development Committee, provides first time conference attendees with an experienced RBMS member to guide the newcomer through their conference experience.

Buddies are asked to meet with the newcomer at least once during the conference. A meeting can be set for coffee, dinner or even just a break between sessions. Topics for discussion can include meeting schedules, the duties of various committees, or how to join a committee. Guides are also expected to introduce the newcomers to RBMS members.

The Membership and Professional Development Committee hopes that the Buddy Program will encourage newcomers to remain long-term, active members of RBMS. Please volunteer to be a guide, or if you are attending the conference, you need to be guided.
