The Los Angeles Chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATD-LA) was recognized for its submission to the ATD “Sharing Our Success” (SOS) program. The national SOS program identifies best practices among local ATD chapters and uses them as models for other chapters.
Shelby Morris, Chair of ATD’s Chapter Recognition Committee said, "This recognition honors the Los Angeles Chapter’s best practice that demonstrates its commitment to managing a successful organization as well as advancing the talent development profession at the local level. We are honored to recognize the chapter with ATD's SOS recognition."
ATD-LA’s SOS submission is titled “A Successful Bi-Annual Strategic Planning Process,” prepared by President Kavita Gupta. By creating two strategic planning meetings in fall and winter, chapter leadership was able to create action plans for each area that contained objectives each director and the president would strive to accomplish during the year. This submission empowers chapter leadership to develop as leaders by putting on their strategic thinking hats, envisioning goals and objectives for the chapter and its members, and putting these into action.
