April President's Letter

Thu, April 10, 2014 8:36 AM | Grace Judson

Spring has definitely sprung and also delivered a few days of summer in San Diego! One way to celebrate Spring is to learn and network with your fellow ASTD members at one of our upcoming meetings.

APRIL 15-17, 2014

Join us next week for a very special workshop with Adobe – teaching us about eLearning techniques with Captivate. Allen Partridge is a Sr. Product Evangelist from Adobe. He will be conducting the workshop on Tuesday, April 15th in San Diego and April 17th in LA. Allen will also be our Chapter Meeting guest speaker on Wednesday, April 16th discussing Trends in eLearning. We have a busy week planned for Allen! Click here to learn more and register.

MAY 19-20, 2014

On May 19th and 20th, we have another special workshop planned with Jim Smith Jr. If anyone attended our Chapter Meeting last September – you were able to see Jim in action. He motivates us as training professionals to excel at our presentation, facilitation, and communication skills – in business and in life. He’s offering a 2-day bootcamp for San Diego and special early-bird rates. I’m planning on attending and hope to see you there too. The first night of the workshop – we have a Chapter BBQ planned with Jim so all of our members can network together and meet Jim. It’s at Gordon Biersch in Mission Valley.

We continue to strive to bring you as many opportunities as we can find that are of benefit to our ASTD community. A few items of note:

We are offering a meeting reciprocity rate to attend any of the ASTD LA and ASTD Orange County events for the member price. All 3 of our chapters are helping each other to reach across Southern California to share resources and provide various opportunities to learn!

ASTD National International Conference (ICE): We have a Chapter Team Discount to attend the conference! That means we have 5 San Diego members registered to attend and anyone who wants to attend can get the discounted rate of $300 off registration! On the ASTD.org website – register for the conference and use the “Conference Team Rate”. http://store.astd.org/Default.aspx?tabid=171&ProductId=24231

I hope this April finds you inspired with your learning. We look forward to seeing you soon,

Nancy McMonigal

2014 Chapter President
