Now is your chance to take a leadership role! As we have been saying, and hopefully have proven this year, ATD Pittsburgh is back. We are well on our way to executing our 2014-2015 strategic plan and have already seen an increase in programming, communications and membership. But, we still have lots to do to deliver on our promise to bring you the programs and services they want. And we still need your talent to make it happen.
We are looking to fill all Board positions, including President and Treasurer. Board members attend monthly meetings to conduct chapter business. Vice Presidents manage projects in their assigned area; membership, communications, membership or project management. They are assisted by directors who take on particular projects. You can see descriptions of each of these positions under the Members tab on the ATD Pittsburgh.com website.
Also on the website is a form for you to use to submit yourself or someone you think would be a great candidate for a position. Please fax your completed form to 724-741-0487 no later than November 7th. I will call you to discuss your interests and provide more information about the positions. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 412-298-8398.
You can make a difference to your fellow training professionals while gaining ever- important leadership and project management experience and making valuable professional contacts.
ATD Pittsburgh is back - be a part of it!
Looking forward to working with you!
ASTD Changes Its Name
Did you hear the news? Our chapter is excited to announce that on May 6, during a special live announcement at the ASTD 2014 International Conference & Exposition, in Washington, D.C., President and CEO, Tony Bingham, and the Board of Directors announced that ASTD is changing its name to the Association for Talent Development (ATD).
Over the next few weeks you will notice our chapter’s transition to our new name and brand beginning with the introduction of our new chapter logo and our new website http://www.tdpittsburgh.org.
While our name may be changing, the chapter’s board of directors want to assure you the local programming, networking, and services you have come to value and enjoy through the chapter will not change, nor will the chapter’s mission and vision. Like national ATD, training and development will remain at the core of our chapter, and we pledge our service and commitment to you is stronger than ever.
We will continue to keep you abreast of our change, and look forward to you joining us on this journey; together, we are creating a world that works better!
