As we move into fall, here is a preview of what we have planned.
The bi-annual board and chapter leader strategic planning meeting will be hosted in-person on September 18 with our office administrators. A copy of the 35-page plan will be available only to board members of the chapter by September 15. A state of the chapter and annual report will be sent to all members in our e-weekly by October 1 along with a year-in-review video for you to enjoy.
Five webinars, an orientation for new and prospective members, and a chapter meeting will be held from September to November.
A wrap-up Mentor Program meeting that will recognize all of our mentors and mentees who participated in 2021 will be held on October 11.
A Holiday Party, Volunteer Recognition, and Dinner will be held on Thursday, December 2 from 6:30pm to 9pm at the Marriott Los Angeles Westside in Culver City. I am excited to announce that Scott Millward, former Senior Vice President of Learning & Development and Field Communication at Panera Bread and current member of ATD’s Board of Directors, has graciously offered to be our special guest and will share insights about where ATD is headed in 2022. We will also recognize our valued partners, sponsors, board members, volunteers, and mentors and mentees; give out numerous awards; and welcome the 2022 board and chapter leaders. So be sure to save the date for this fun year-end celebration!
As always, good health until we meet, and have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
