The MDRT Academy and MDRT Mentoring Program
are joining forces.
As two separate offerings, the MDRT Academy and MDRT Mentoring Program have always shared one mission: To help financial advisors reach MDRT. As one unified offering, they are able to better deliver on that mission by creating a more comprehensive and meaningful experience for MDRT-aspiring advisors.
Where is this going into effect? This change will affect mentees in regions where the MDRT Academy is currently available: Australia; Canada; Hong Kong, China; India; Indonesia; Jamaica; Malaysia; New Zealand; the Philippines; Singapore; the U.K.; the U.S. and Vietnam. In 2023, this change will start taking place in additional regions.
When is this going into effect?
Starting Jan. 1, 2022, mentees need to be members of the MDRT Academy to participate in the MDRT Mentoring Program. As members of the Academy, mentees will have access to various resources and support, including MDRT-quality content, a personalized assessment, Weekly Growth Plans, goal-setting and -tracking features, monthly webinars and the opportunity to attend certain MDRT events.
When can mentees apply to the MDRT Academy? Mentees can apply to become 2022 MDRT Academy members starting Nov. 1, 2021. The application can be accessed and completed at mdrtacademy.org. Membership is annual and runs through Dec. 31.
How can MDRT Academy members participate in the mentoring program?
Academy members can complete an application in the MDRT mentoring platform, where mentoring relationships are facilitated. Current 2021 MDRT Academy members can fill out an application today.
How does this affect current mentors and mentees?
You do not need to change the way you have been operating. Continue to connect with and help your mentee(s) through the MDRT mentoring platform. Please encourage your current mentee(s) to join the MDRT Academy to continue participating in the MDRT Mentoring Program in 2022.
