It’s free and anyone can attend! Click here to register if you’re interested.

    Hello ATD San Diego! 

    It’s warming up out there, but have no fear, ATD is bringing you ICE!  Not the cubes that keep your drink cold, the ATD International Conference and EXPO (ICE).  This year it’s being held in Atlanta, GA on May 21-24. You can gain new contacts, fresh ideas on how to apply current and future trends to your own job, and find an invigorated passion for talent development. I’m looking forward to hearing from all of the ATD members that went to hear what they learned.  I was even more excited to learn that next year ATD ICE is coming to San Diego in 2018!

    As your ATD Chapter President, I'm very grateful for the opportunity to work together with you to keep this great talent development organization thriving each year. There are so many opportunities to learn and grow with the chapter.  If you are a member, be a more active member.  If you are an active member, look into serving on our board of directors. If you are an ATD San Diego member, upgrade to a Power of 2 membership.  We're here for you!

    Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.  You can email me at president@tdsandiego.org

    See you at the next event!

    Hello ATD San Diego! 

    Did you attend our brand new Organizational Development SIG in February? Have no fear, if you missed it, we have another wonderful OD Net SIG this month. The topic will be O.D. Efforts at Palomar Healthcare.

    We are so fortunate. We have some amazing Talent Development professionals right here in San Diego. Dr. Allison Rossett is one of them and she has agreed to do a workshop for us this month on Achieving Business Outcomes with Performance Consulting. Thank you Allison!

    I also want to take this opportunity to mention to each of you our chapter's award winningMentor - 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.

    Could you benefit from the services of an experienced Trainer, Training Vendor, or Consultant specialized in the field of Talent Development? Check out our Resource Directory at http://www.tdsandiego.org/find_trainer. Would you like to be listed in the Resource Directory? Contact our office manager at office@tdsandiego.org for more information.

    Looking forward to seeing you at the next event!

    Hello ATD San Diego and Happy New Year!

    As we say goodbye to 2016, I want to take this opportunity to thank all of those that helped to make 2016 such a great year at ATD.  We couldn’t have done it without the help of so many wonderful volunteers.  

    We had an amazing and hard working Board of Directors. Thanks to Nancy McMonigal (Past President), Chis Campbell (Marketing Director) Carol Sheckler (Secretary), Elaine Hester (Technology Director), Claude Koehl (Programs Director), Amy Osback (Programs Director), Rebecca Everett (Programs Director), and Laurie Donnelly (CFO).  

    Our chapter couldn’t function without our wonderful volunteers. This year we are honoring the following individuals:

    Rookie of the year award goes to John Alexander. John jumped right in and is running our HPA events now.  He always has a smile and warm greeting for our attendees.  

    President’s Choice award goes to Ray Valenzuela and Kevin Mayfield. One thing that they both have in common is their eagerness to do anything asked of them. A common phrase I use for both of them is “He is my rock.”  Ray has been handling our registration for events and is now our new Programs Co Director for 2017.  Kevin helps with finance, technology, and programs.  

    Comeback Volunteer of the year award goes to Barbara Greenstein. Barbara has helped to keep our Technology SIG (Special Interest Group) going strong by facilitating some great sessions.  

    Volunteer of the year award goes to Nancy Carroll. Nancy has been such a strong supporter of ATD, she has been volunteering for the chapter in many capacities for a number of years. She consistently brings along her energy and professional attitude to further our chapter efforts and membership! In September, she did a wonderful job with marketing and overall volunteering where needed, for the joint SHRM Workplace Strategies event. We are thrilled that she is our Marketing Director and look forward to seeing more of her creativity come to life!

    Lastly, I would like to recognize our November and December volunteers of the month.  Chelsea Campbell  has been working on the programs committee and has been a great asset.  She has been assisting with registration and has some wonderful program ideas.  

    For December, we are so grateful to the entire Mentor Protégé team. Thanks for another banner year:  Tino Bautista, Monica Braun Miller, Catherine Mattice, Genaro Torres, and Jacquie Uriel.  

    We’ve got some great programs in the works for 2017.   I’m looking forward to seeing you all at the chapter events!

    Hello ATD San Diego!

    A big round of applause and congratulations for our newly-elected 2017 Board members.  Please join me in welcoming Nancy Carroll (Marketing) and Raymond Valenzuela (Programs).  I’m so excited to have these two wonderful people join our board.  They have wonderful enthusiasm and work ethics and I know that they will be a great addition to the board.  Unfortunately, that means I have to give a sad farewell to Chris Campbell (Marketing), Carol Scheckler (Secretary) and Claude Koehl (Programs).  The next time you see Chris, Carol or Claude at an event, please thank them for their hard work and dedication.  They will be missed.  

    Training Magazine is having their training 2017 conference and expo this year at the San Diego Convention Center at the end of January.  ATD members will be eligible for a discount.  More information to come.  

    Wishing all of you a joyful holiday season!
