Welcome to July and to holiday weekend! To honor our mission of focusing on our own personal and professional development, we are planning a light summer activity list to allow for some down time. Not all development comes from workshops and meetings! We hope you can enjoy some time off to enjoy family, vacations, and all the great things that summer has to offer. We’ll all be ready to share some fresh ideas at our September chapter meeting.
We look forward to seeing you soon and don’t forget to connect with us through LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and the astdsandiego.org website.
Chapter Leadership – Is it for you?
It is not too soon to start considering next year. With the change of the ASTD name to ATD (ie: talent development) – we are elevating our T&D work and impact higher up in our organizations. The training and development roles are becoming true talent development at the strategic level. This creates a great opportunity for you to be involved on a larger level. ATD’s San Diego chapter will have several board positions open in 2015 for members looking to use and enhance their leadership experience and skills. Board members build a strong network of colleagues and lasting friendships. Opportunities to showcase your talents are nearly unlimited on the board. Whether your gifts are technical, organizational, or creative, serving on the board provides a great opportunity to demonstrate and develop your leadership skills for the betterment of our Chapter and your professional career. Don’t underestimate the power of a “board member” title on your resume.
Check out our website for more information and an application. There are a lot of great reasons to volunteer for the board – I hope you find one to fit your goals!
