    Hello ATD San Diego!

    We have a new board member! Laurel Goodman is now our Chapter Secretary. Congratulations Laurel! She has been a great addition to our ATD family and we are so happy to have her.

    Last month was the ATD International Conference and Expo in Atlanta Georgia. For anyone who was able to attend the conference, I would love it if you could attend our HPA event at the end of the month and share your experience with us. I hope to see you there!

    June 20-22, The eLearning Guild will be having their Focus on Learning conference right here in San Diego. We will have a booth at the expo on the 20th and the 21st and attendance at the expo is free. The expo has vendors, a reception, Learning Stages, Learning Arcade and DemoFest. I’m looking forward to DemoFest. You can see other eLearing professionals share mobile, games and video projects that they created. It’s really cool! If you go, please stop by and say hello. I would love to see you. Here is the LINK to learn more about the expo and to register.

    The ATD International Conference and Expo will be in San Diego next year on May 6-9, 2018. If you are interested in volunteering, send an email to Rebecca Everett at atd2018volunteers@tdsandiego.org.

    For each day you volunteer, you get a complimentary day to attend ICE!

    Looking forward to seeing you at the next event!

    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!

    Hello ATD San Diego!

    The Presidential Election is tomorrow, but the ATD election starts today.

    We have two wonderful candidates for the board.  Our Chapter Bylaws require that at least 10% of our membership must cast their ballot in order to do business – in this case, in order to elect our Board members.  If you could take a moment and read about these wonderful candidates and cast your vote, it would be appreciated.

    Here is the link to vote.

    December 5th through the 9th is ATD Employee Learning Week.  Employee Learning Week is an awareness campaign highlighting the important connection between learning and achieving organizational results. 

    Celebrate with ATD San Diego by attending a workshop and a chapter meeting!  

    Learn all about performance consulting with our local legend Allison Rossett on December 6.  Then share what you learned with us at our Year End Networking and Volunteer Recognition Party on December 8.

    Looking forward to seeing you at the next event!

    Hello ATD San Diego!

    Things at ATD slow down a little during the summer.  

    You may have noticed that we didn’t have any chapter events in July and August. We did, however, continue to have our very popular monthly HPA networking events.  And we had an amazing workshop. 

    Margie Meacham, “the Brain Lady” is a brain-aware instructional design and performance improvement consultant and she is the president of Learningtogo. She is also a certified ATD Education Facilitator. She held a workshop called Using Neuroscience to Enhance your Instructional Design and did a wonderful job.

    You can see pictures and learn more about the workshop here on Margie's website, and about Margie and what she does on her website Learningtogo.

    Margie was also gracious enough to share some of her resources. You can find them on our website at here

    And speaking of resources, I’m happy to share that our chapter is in a fiscally strong position. Please remember, as a chapter member you can contact us at any time to get an update on our chapters financial status by sending an email to finance@tdsandiego.org.

    *** AND A SPECIAL REMINDER:  Don’t forget to sign up for the Workplace Strategies Conference on September 21!

    It’s been an amazing honor and privilege to serve the San Diego chapter. Looking forward to seeing you at the next event!
