ATD San Diego,
It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
It’s almost my favorite time of the year, Daylight Savings Time! This month we adjust our clocks and lose an hour of sleep, to gain more glorious hours of sunshine. With the additional sunlight I find myself staying away from home longer and longer whenever possible. That is one of the reasons why I enjoy calling San Diego home. Our San Diego ATD chapter is another.
Technology Special Interest Group Re-launch
This month we re-launched our Technology Special Interest Group (SIG) and learned about leveraging the capabilities of PowerPoint to create storyboards. Bringing this idea to reality was a direct result of two long-standing members, John Morley and Kevin Storm Jorgensenexchanging ideas at our January chapter meeting. Thank you both. I hope their boldness to step out inspires you. Our chapter is made up of diverse talent professionals and we welcome your ideas and participation. Watch for the next opportunity to participate in this SIG in May.
Chapter Meeting March 16th
Are you interested in adding more technology tools to your toolkit? Miro is a fantastic online collaboration tool. If you haven’t tried it yet, or if you want to share how you use it to get work done, then join our former Marketing Director Sharon Lo as she hosts our chapter meeting, Reimagining Virtual Collaboration: Using Miro in the L&D Space, this month on Wednesday March 16th, at 5:30 p.m.
Welcome New Members
Every person who calls ATD San Diego their chapter adds to the richness of our community. I want to take a moment to recognize our six newest members, who joined our chapter in 2022.

The Great Resignation
The great resignation is a topic that directly touches our industry and it is not something that is going away soon. Research from groups like Forrester agree that this trend didn’t start with the global pandemic. The global talent marketplace has seen a steady decline in the average employee tenure for more than a decade. What are the reasons behind this? One of the top 3 reasons is the lack of career development from an individual’s employer. How are you paving your career path? Make the most of your membership and leverage our programming to boost your career development this year. We intentionally create our events to provide you with tools and networking connections to move your career forward. Most of our events provide continuing education credit for the ATD National Certified Professional in Talent Development and Associate Professional in Talent Development certificates.
Helping Hands Available to Support Your Work
Do you have a project that could use a second set of hands to help complete? Does your organization have a learning and development need that you could use additional ideas on? If so, then consider submitting a proposal for the San Diego State University Learning Design Technology program’s student project. Don't delay, proposals are due at the end of this week. This may be just the solution that you need to bring fresh ideas to the projects that you support.
ATD International Conference and Expo
The ATD International Conference and Expo is taking place both virtually and in-person in Orlando, Florida May 15-18th. There is a discount available if 5 or more members from our chapter attend. Please email email@example.com if you plan to attend.
