The ASTD-San Diego PEAK Awards committee is busy this month generating interest in the prestigious PEAK Award. The deadline for applications is July 31.  

Learn more about the PEAK -Performance Excellence in Applied Knowledge - award here

PEAK Performance Awards promote innovation and excellence within the San Diego Training and Development community by highlighting outstanding learning and performance initiatives. Many of us join ASTD-San Diego to share best practices and learn from others, and the PEAK Performance Awards program is a terrific opportunity to do just that.

There are so types of learning initiatives that can demonstrate the essence of PEAK.  We've been impressed by the types of initiatives members have used to apply for the award in recent past years. We can’t wait to see what is in store for the 2012 process. Ready to apply?  Follow these links to the award application and scoring rubric and a short assessment tool to help you determine if your training and development initiatives are PEAK-worthy.

This is the fourth time I've worked on the PEAK awards committee and it is really rewarding. Learning about notable training and development initiatives in San Diegois a privilege and helps me grow as learning professional.  I also love the people aspect of this committee - we have a great line up of volunteers working on Peak this year!
