We call this our "MOM" (mentoring our members) program. Each new member of Assistance League of Nashville will have two mentors or (MOMS.)

The mentor will ensure that the new member knows what is expected and help them find a committee to match their interests. Orientation meetings conducted by the Education Chairman help to ensure the information process.
