Hello ATD San Diego,
Spring has sprung and we have some great programs lined up for you!
Don’t get me wrong; Winter was great. Last month we had an amazing chapter event. At our “PEAK Awards Roundtable” attendees were given the opportunity to pick the brains and hear about "best practices" from some of the strongest learning leaders in San Diego. Thanks to all of the volunteers and attendees who helped to make the event a huge success!
This month's chapter meeting is “Leadership Development Strategies”. Attendees will hear a panel of seasoned leadership development practitioners discuss the techniques and tools that have brought them success, and the lessons they’ve learned from working in organizations of varying types and sizes. Don't miss this unique learning and networking event.
I also want to take this opportunity to mention to each of you our chapter's award winning Mentor - Protégé Program. Open to current San Diego chapter members, a creative "speed dating" process takes place where volunteer mentors are paired with interested protégés who then work together in a six-month semi-structured program. BOTH mentor and protégé participants share what they learned about themselves and each other while they expanded their professional network. The best part is it’s free! And it is one of the most beneficial experiences we offer our chapter members.
Lastly, several months ago I reported that our President Elect, Annette Weinstein, would be starting her term on July 1, 2016. However, due to a recent personal health event, I am ending my term a few months early. Effective immediately, Annette Weinstein is taking over the role of President of our San Diego ATD chapter. We are so fortunate to have Annette now at the helm! Please help me welcome her to her new role.
It has truly been a pleasure to serve on the board, and I thank you all for the opportunity! I hope to see you at future chapter meetings.
