November 2017 Issue
With Thanksgiving around the corner and the leaves swirling about, change is in the air. Students are back at school and traffic has increased. I’m moving back into my home after four months of house-sitting and staying with amazing hosts. All this transition has given me plenty of opportunity to practice staying present and grounded even amid the constant moving around the city.
In talking to our members, I know I’m not alone. Organizations are working on building new capabilities. Leaders are being asked to stretch and grow in new ways. Our region is growing, businesses are changing rapidly, and reports from the cutting edge would say that we’re heading towards another significant shift in how talent development professionals are learning to anticipate the needs of their learners and thinking of ways to design learning experiences.
This is also the season where think ahead to 2018 and beyond. We asked you to vote for our President Elect in 2018. We’re happy to announce that Marie Tjernlund is stepping into this role in January. We’re thrilled to have her bring her leadership, creativity, and passion for learning to the board!
Speaking of change, as a board, we’ve been focused on our strategy going forward. We’ve determined that to provide a valuable experience for our members, we will align our goals to three core principles.
1. Personal Engagement. We want to create a vibrant member network that empowers professionals to develop talent in the workplace. We do this through our program, our conference, our Special Interest Groups and our volunteer opportunities where you can develop your skills and connect with other professionals in the area.
2. Organizational Engagement. Build partnerships with organizations to increase impact in the region and deliver increased value to our members. In addition to cultivating partners who sponsor our larger events, we’re considering new ways to partner with organizations in the region. In December, we’ll be holding an “under the hood” event for our members to dive deep into how one of our local organizations built an amazing onboarding program.
3. Virtual Engagement. Remove barriers and increase the ease of engaging with the chapter by offering technology-enabled content and ways to engage virtually. We’re looking at ways to connect virtually so that you have more choices of content. Stay tuned for more announcements in this area.
We’re excited about the possibilities. If you have ideas and would like to get involved, we’d love to hear from you!
