Interest Groups

Interest Groups are learning and networking events that supplement the monthly Puget Sound Chapter Meeting. Interest Groups meet and serve the needs and interests of chapter members to focus on learning techniques and information relevant to the various functions of learning development. The primary goal is learning and the secondary goal of these groups is focused on networking to allow those in the learning profession the opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, and resources.

Eastside Networking Interest Group 

Summary: Meet people in the fields of training, coaching, performance improvement, human resources, leadership development, and organizational development.  We are a  mix of full-time employees, independent consultants, and/or those in career transition.  We exchange ideas, resources, and leads, and enjoy good company! Feel free to invite others who may enjoy this group-that's the point of the group. No pre-registration is necessary, as you are responsible for your own food and drinks (be they herbal tea, diet soda, draft beer, or martinis).

    Meet people in the fields of training, coaching, performance improvement, human resources, leadership development, and organizational development. Join us in Fremont on the first Thursday of each month to network, exchange ideas, resources, and leads, and enjoy good company!

During the winter months, we're usually located inside in the farthest right corner. If you can't find us, ask the staff -- they'll send you in the right direction!
