A special thank you to the professionals involved in our February event, the “Science Behind Learning: For Faster, Better Learning.” Beth Levin facilitated the discussion with audience members and our esteemed panelists: Sue Stevenson from NeuroLeadership, Karen A. Garman from Kaiser Permanente, and Sarai McMahan from Rady Children's Hospital. Members can view handouts and resources used during the program in the Resources section of our ATD website
Our Mentor-Protégé program is on the horizon. If you are interested in making a change, enhancing your skills, or partnering with someone who is; now is the time. Applications for both roles are due by May 8th. Click here for specific details about this award-winning program.
We are experimenting a little this year with offering more “Fireside Chats” in the early evening. Many of these are combined with our monthly HPA meetings, and feature a speaker of interest or activity for the first hour or so. The rest of the evening is devoted to networking, delicious nibbles and valuable conversation. If you have not attended one before, we invite you to stop by and get connected with like-minded professionals. You’ll be glad you came! Click here for more details.
