Hello ATD Valley of the Sun members and visitors to our site! We are so excited to get our 2021 programing off to a busy start. While it may have taken us a bit to get going, we are moving right along, and we have so many exciting things planned for this year. Our programming is set for the next few months so make sure you sign up for these monthly evening networking educational events. These are our longer educational programs designed to give you access to the hot topics in the Learning and Development arena today. We’ll be staying in the virtual world for a bit longer but hopefully be able to meet in person again soon.
In other exciting news, we are launching our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) which are smaller, targeted events that promote discussion around specific topics. These will be happening on a regular, monthly basis so check out the calendar to join the topic that interests you. While these too, are virtual we will make the most of these opportunities to get you connected to others in your community.
There are many changes happening at ATD National as well. If you aren’t aware, there are changes in the membership structure taking place starting March 1st, so take advantage and renew your National membership or become a Power member (dual membership in both VOS & ATD national). If you haven’t heard, the ATD International conference August 29-September 1 has been moved to Salt Lake City, UT so if you were planning to attend in person you will need to re-route. However, there are virtual options again this year. Check out TD.org for more details.
The ATDVOS Board and I are working very hard to make sure your membership experience is one you feel is worth your time and investment. The ATD Valley of the Sun Chapter is your chapter and we are here for you. I am excited to be your President for the 2021-2022 terms and would love to hear from you on any topic so feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
