Most of us reach out to colleagues or friends for technical or other professional guidance. The frequency with which we seek guidance varies depending on the relationship, our need, and their expertise. But overall, most of us do this because such dialogue helps us fortify relationships, stimulate ideas, gain perspective, discover new information, and learn how and where to find answers.

FTL has established several avenues to seek formal mentoring from peers and leaders. Participating in a formal mentoring program benefits the mentor and mentee by building strong professional networks while shaping current and future leaders in our field. FTL membership is not required to participate in this program.

One-on-One Mentoring
FTL will match mentees with one or more mentors based on the mentee’s needs, the mentor’s competency, and both party’s availability.

TaxTalent’s Tax Mentor Program
TaxTalent believes that an important part of career development is the mentoring process. We have developed an efficient, “on demand” mentoring system for two primary reasons:

  1. We want to ensure that the knowledge of senior tax professionals is passed on to the next generation.
  2. We know that the most successful tax professionals attribute their success to short and long-term mentor relationships they’ve had throughout their career. (Read more)
