Hello ATD San Diego!
Hope you are having a great summer. Each and every time I write these President messages, I find myself thinking about the chapter and how much I enjoy it. A relative of mine came to one of our chapter events with me and she said, “Now I know why you like this organization so much. The people are so wonderful.” I completely agree with her. I continue to meet amazing people and if we haven’t met yet, I can’t wait to meet you. Maybe I’ll see you at our collaboration event with San Diego SHRM on Sept. 21. The Workplace Strategies Conference will have some great networking and wonderful speakers.
Our PEAK Awards event is in October and the deadline to submit your application and have an opportunity to showcase your program and your company is September 1. You can learn more about the event on our website here, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s that time of year again. It’s time for the nominations of board positions for 2017. Have you ever considered being a board member? Here are some great reasons to join the board:
- Apply and enhance leadership skills
- Opportunities to showcase your talents
- Build a strong network of colleagues
- Gain new skills
- Build connections with other association members
- Participate in building a strong association
- Suggest and implement new ideas
- Help direct the future of ATD
- Have a seat at the table!
We will be posting the board member application and instructions shortly. We are looking for a Secretary, Programs Director, Marketing Director, Membership Director and President-Elect. If you are interested, please let us know by August 12. If you have questions or just simply want to learn more about the available positions, please email me at email@example.com.
