Hello ATD San Diego!

Summer is here!  Hopefully you are all taking a little bit of time for yourselves to enjoy our beautiful city.

I decided it was a good time to recognize those of you that continue to help keep our chapter strong by donating your time and office space.  I wish I could list them all - but special thanks to Groovy Like a Movie, Vistage, and PIRCH for the use of their locations for our events, and to Jack-In-The-Box for the use of their facilities for our monthly Board of Directors meetings.  Also a big "Thank you" to Troy Gorostiza for sharing your expertise on LMS trends at our Technology SIG event.

Also I wanted to let you know that two of our board members attended the ATD International Conference and Exposition last month in Colorado.  You may hear this event referred to as ICE, and it draws vendors, presenters, and attendees from over 80 countries.  They all come together to share and learn about the latest Talent Development trends.  There is more about next year’s event here, and I seriously encourage you consider making the trip.  It will be very worth it.

Finally an early notice of the wonderful collaborative event we have coming up in September.  San Diego SHRM and ATD San Diego are partnering to present a Workplace Strategies Conference. More information is coming soon on our website. You won’t want to miss it!

See you at the next event!

Annette Weinstein

President, TD San Diego
