Hi ATD San Diego!

Wow! Summer just flew by… it is amazing how quickly the passage of time can feel. As we roll into the fall months and heading toward 2020 (can you believe it), we have several events taking place I would like to highlight.

First, is our next workshop on September 23rd from 1:00 – 4:30 PM. Dr. Maureen Orey will be facilitating "Don’t Reinvent the Wheel – Leverage Existing Resources for Rapid Instructional Design.” What a great topic! I know I am always looking for ways NOT to start from scratch. This should be a very meaningful and useful afternoon. You can find more details and registration information on our website.

Also in September, we will be launching the election process for new board members. A huge thank you to all who expressed interest in our open positions. You can find information on each candidate on our website. Elections will run from September 3 through October 4. Members will need to login in order to vote.

Our chapter meeting programs team is currently working on a great new event that will take place in early November. We are planning our first, and hopefully not last, hackathon. This idea is a result of feedback we received during our February chapter meeting. This is a great opportunity to help a group in our community in a fun, exciting day. More to come soon, so keep an eye on the website and our social media sites.

Our HPA’s are a great opportunity to learn more about ATD and the value of membership. Please pass the word along to your friends and colleagues. We hold our HPA events in Carlsbad and La Jolla each month. Be sure to register so we know you are coming.

September 9 through the 13th is ATD Member Week. Throughout this week, you will be able to save 10% on your ATD San Diego membership. ATD national members will have access to daily, exclusive sales on the most popular ATD products and services. Additionally, ATD Professional and Professional Plus memberships will be available at 10 percent off standard rates. Discounts will be automatically applied at checkout. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Have a great September and I hope to see you at an upcoming event.

Best Regards,

Mary Jane Riccardi
Chapter President
