For First Timers to this COPAS conference or new to the industry:  Why sign up for a COPAS Mentor?

The purpose of having a COPAS Mentor for you, as a First Timer, is to ensure that there is a point of contact to answer questions prior to, during, and after COPAS meetings.   These questions may entail which committee to attend that best aligns with your job function; what events offered provide the best networking and knowledge transfer opportunity, or who can be contacted to provide guidance on a specific job task question.  

For those interested in having a COPAS Mentor:

If you aren’t a First Timer and maybe not new to the industry but you are interested in being assigned a COPAS Mentor, please contact us at COPASMentor@copas.org.

For Potential COPAS Mentors:  What is a COPAS Mentor?   What are the qualifications?

It is not intended for a COPAS Mentor to be an expert in their field, just knowledgeable enough to know where to go to get more information to address a First Timer’s needs and have a willingness to personally connect and be available for assistance or just to chat about the oil and gas business.  In general, a COPAS Mentor is a COPAS member willing to provide to those unfamiliar with COPAS and/or less experienced in the industry, an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the benefits provided by COPAS to the energy industry, energy companies, and for individual professional development.   Desired pre-requisites include a desire, time, and willingness to serve as a mentor, an understanding of the COPAS organization, and a willingness to embrace something new.  Knowledge of COPAS Publications pertinent to a mentee’s specific job function assignment such as audit, joint interest, or revenue, are also very beneficial.    

Testimonials

Networking is so important. It will help with your job and career, and you will gain knowledge you can’t get sitting at a desk. The people in COPAS have mentored me, answered questions for me, and genuinely cared about me and my family.

COPAS has great learning opportunities, leadership opportunities, and ways to develop relationships with other accountants and oil and gas professionals. You will work hard when you get involved, but the experiences, people and benefits will be worth it.
