Interest Groups are learning and networking events that supplement the monthly Puget Sound Member Events. 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.
Interest Groups are either Special Interest Groups (SIGs) or Geographic Interest Groups (GIGs). GIGs provide opportunities for our members to interact based on interests and locale. Groups meet on their own time schedule at a location convenient to members in that geographic area. GIGs cover a geographic area as opposed to having a specific focus like a SIG. SIGs have a specific L&D focus or interest.
The ATD Puget Sound Chapter needs YOU to be a SIG or GIG Leader!
As a SIG/GIG Leader you have an opportunity to share your passion while leading and engaging peers with a 4–6 hour monthly time commitment.
Examples of other possible SIG topics:
· Human Performance Improvement
· Training Delivery
· Change Management
Consider becoming a SIG or GIG Leader. It promises to be a rewarding experience!
The first step to establishing a SIG or GIG is to be an ATD Puget Sound member, then contact the Interest Group Manager to discuss potential topics and logistics such as Interest Group title, a summary and meeting cadence.
