In 2006, the late Joe Melli, then-Chair of the Senior Lawyers Section, and Josh Kindkeppel, then Chair of the New Lawyers Section, joined forces to create the Dane County Mentorship Program. The Mentorship Program launched a pilot program in the fall of 2007 matching 10 mentees with 10 mentors. The Program was a success and was expanded in subsequent years. The concept of the Program is simple: match new attorneys with seasoned veterans based on an area of practice/interest.
