May President's Message

05/12/2021 12:00 PM | ATD-LA (Administrator)

Kavita Gupta, ATD-LA PresidentI had the pleasure of hosting the first Leadership Retreat for our ATD-LA chapter leadership team and what a blast we had! Great food and a scavenger hunt were topped off with a visit by author, former executive and coach, Caroline Leach, who not only did a book signing, but generously gifted copies of her book to everyone. A big thank you to our 20+ executive committee members, board of directors, office administrators, chapter leaders and volunteers!

I would also like to take this near half-year milestone to reflect on our accomplishments and share them with you. We could not have done this without you, our members!

  • Weathered the storm created by the pandemic with strong financial reserves.
  • Welcomed over 45 new individual members 19 of whom received a complimentary membership from the KG Talent Development Grant, and a corporate member, Herbalife.
  • Hosted over 365 members and guests at chapter meetings, webinars, orientations, communities of practice meetings and mentorship meetings.
  • Developed strategies, team building and friendships through board and chapter leader leadership strategic planning meetings.
  • Recruited 25+ chapter leaders and volunteers in the past 3 years since I became president-elect with a retention rate of 81%.
  • Implemented a new Code of Conduct for chapter leaders and volunteers.
  • Added over 75 new followers to our LinkedIn social media platform with an average of 20k impressions per month.

ATD-LA continues to be an award-winning top tier chapter! Let us celebrate our successes and keep building on our 75-year history. If you are interested in joining the leadership team and giving back to the learning and development community, contact us at
