    Hi ATD San Diego,

    As I sit here writing this letter it is still hard to believe that I am now Chapter President. I am so excited about taking the great work Annette and her Board of Directors have done and continuing to move the chapter forward. I know with the help of our member volunteers, we will be able to continue to grow our chapter and provide our members with professional development and networking opportunities.

    I want to take this opportunity to bring you up-to-date on the approach the Board and I will be taking to move us forward. At our regularly scheduled board meeting in July, we will be holding a strategic planning session. From this work, I hope to be able to publish a clear direction for our chapter and its members which we can use to target actions and events that will make a difference. The first action we will take is to start planning chapter meetings and workshops through the remainder of the year and into 2019. I will provide updates starting with my August letter.

    I want to thank you all for putting your faith in me and allowing me to be your chapter leader, and a special thanks to Annette for all she has done and her dedication to our chapter. I look forward to seeing you at our future chapter events. Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to reach out at president@tdsandiego.org.

    Best Regards,

    Mary Jane Riccardi
    Chapter President

    Hello ATD San Diego!

    Thank you to all of the volunteers for ATD 2018, what a successful conference!  I truly appreciate all who helped and a special thanks to the Volunteer Coordinators, Rebecca Everett and Nancy McMonigal. They worked really hard overseeing the volunteers, so grateful to have hard working volunteers.  Our board of directors also deserves special mention.  They were instrumental in helping with the volunteers and our booth.

    Speaking of elections, this is my final president's letter.  Mary Jane Riccardi will be our new San Diego Chapter President.  I know the chapter will be in good hands with Mary Jane at the helm.   I want to thank everyone for all of their help and support during my presidency.  It has been an honor and a privilege to serve on the board.

    Hello ATD San Diego!

    Have you ever wanted to be a speaker at one of our events or know someone that would like to?  If so, we would love to hear from you.  Click here to learn more. 

    I want to take this opportunity to mention to each of you our chapters Mentor Protege Program.  Open to current San Diego chapter members, a creative "speed dating" process takes place where volunteer mentors are paired with interested proteges who then work together in a six month semi-structured program.  BOTH mentor and protege participants share what they learned about themselves and each other while they expand their professional network.  It's one of the most beneficial experiences we offer our chapter members. Click here to learn more about the program or to sign up.   


    See you at the next event!

    Hello ATD San Diego!

    I can’t believe it’s December! Where did the year go?

    It was wonderful to see some new faces and lots of familiar faces at the November chapter event. Thank you, Eric Kaufmann, for a wonderful presentation. We all bought his books and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

    I wasn’t able to attend the ATD 2017 Southern California Regional Conference, but I spoke with several people that did attend, and they said it was informative and had some great speakers.

    I look forward to seeing you at the December event!

    Hello ATD San Diego!

    It’s election time! We have two wonderful candidates for the board. Our Chapter Bylaws require that at least 10% of our membership must cast their ballot in order to do business – in this case, in order to elect our Board members. If you could take a moment and read about these wonderful candidates and cast your vote, it would be appreciated.

    Please see the information on the right to get to know the candidates!

    -------------------------------------------------------------

    I have some sad news to share. Willamae Heitman recently passed away peacefully in her home with her family and friends by her side. She was 97 years old. In 1973, she was the first female President of the San Diego Chapter of ATD. Willamae was a vivacious trend setter, world traveler, and longtime volunteer leader who worked relentlessly to build relationships, support the San Diego Chapter of ATD, and keep her Avon business going longer than any other person on earth.

    Willamae, you will be missed.
