Do you have questions about advancing your career in regulatory? Are you curious about the skills regulatory employers are seeking? Would you like to learn more about how Regulatory Affairs Certification (RAC) can help or how other programs at local colleges and universities? Or are you looking to transition into regulatory affairs? If so, come spend an evening engaging veteran professionals on these and other questions.

RAPS believes in the power of mentoring and is committed to providing opportunities for seasoned professionals to engage with those new to the regulatory profession. To achieve this goal, the DC/Baltimore chapter invites you to participate in an innovative program, formatted to provide a fun and fulfilling experience for all involved. Think speed dating, except the engagement is between mentors and mentees.

How Does it Work?
We’ve recruited a handful of senior regulatory professionals, each with years of experience in regulatory. Our mentors will be seated in stationery positions with an empty chair in front of them. Mentees are to sit down opposite the mentor for the opportunity to ask the mentor a few career-related questions. Every five to seven minutes, a bell will sound, and the mentees will move on to the next mentor to ask the same, or a different set of questions.

Some examples of potential questions/discussions topics that mentees should bring with them may include:

  • How did you end up in regulatory?
  • What skills to regulatory employers look for?
  • How can I make myself a more attractive candidate?
  • Are there any courses or training programs that you suggest?
  • How can the RAC help my career?
  • Do you have any specific suggestions breaking into regulatory? 

The rotational conversations ensure that everyone will have an opportunity to meet and interact with one another. After the interactions, a light meal will be available providing ample opportunity to continue the conversations and exchange contact information if appropriate.

This event is coordinated by the RAPS DC/Baltimore chapter and is intended to promote knowledge sharing and engagement among regulatory professionals in our region. Dinner will be provided and RAC holders may claim two RAC recertification credits.
