CiviCore Attended the 2016 National Mentoring Summit
- February 17, 2016
MentorCore Product Manager Alex Bieling and CiviCore’s CEO Chic Naumer had the opportunity to attend the 2016 National Mentoring Summit. CiviCore has a long history with MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership; in 2014 they collaborated to develop the CiviCore MentorCore Youth platform. The two organizations have continued to work together to improve the Mentoring industry and software.
While at the summit, Alex had the opportunity to meet with many MentorCore users. During their conversation Alex enjoyed putting faces to the names of the individuals he has been working with for years, as well as learning more about their individual mentoring software needs.
One of the biggest takeaways from the summit was Alex’s opportunity to learn how CiviCore can support their programs in an even greater capacity in the future. Alex was able to discern some important mentoring goals and develop ideas to add to MentorCore Youth’s functionality in the future. Popular subjects of discussion were e-learning and integrated background checks. CiviCore is currently exploring both of these needs and has integrated background checks added to the development roadmap.
Alex plans to attend the 2017 National Mentoring Summit next year, hoping to have even greater functionalities to deliver to clients and continue to learn more about the industry’s ever evolving needs.
About Alex Bieling
Alex joined CiviCore with an extensive background in Customer Service. Having previously worked in a support role with international sales teams for a multinational software company, CivicCore was a perfect fit. A Colorado native, Alex earned his BA degree in French Literature from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Fittingly, he is a self-described Francophile, having visited France several times, studied in Paris and writing and defending a thesis examining the literary reactions of French colonialism in the West Indies.
Alex is CiviCore’s “search guru” and helps clients transition from the physical build of their database into exporting meaningful data for funding and tracking purposes. He also serves as CiviCore’s frontline of support for additional system changes, tweaks, and upgrades.
