  • I will try to keep requests for expedited responses to a minimum.
  • I realize the relationship between myself and my mentor is professional and that our communications should remain private.
  • When venting frustration or concern, I will not use profanity, make derogatory remarks, or specify names of people or entities in my communications.
  • I will notify my mentor when I am unavailable to receive/send e-mails.
  • I understand and acknowledge that any views, opinions, guidance or remarks of my mentor are specific to him/her and may not reflect the views, opinions, guidance or remarks of the Pennsylvania Court Reporters Association or any other professional associations.
  • I understand that the assignment of mentors is voluntary. If my mentor elects to discontinue his/her participation in the mentoring program or I desire to be assigned a different mentor, I may re-apply using the application request form.
