Professional Development

The Chapter provides a number of special events per year focused on developing specific Areas of Expertise, as outlined in the ASTD competency model. Priorities are identified based on feedback from chapter members and workplace learning trends. Programs vary in length, 2 hours up to 2 days.

Events are posted on the ASTD website and registration is open to both members and non-members alike.  
One of our premiere events is the Regional Conference. Typically a one-day, comprehensive event that covers a wide range of leading edge, relevant and applicable topics that refresh and invigorate your thinking and approach to workplace learning.  

If you have an idea or would like to help plan/organize an event, please contact VP of Professional Development

    “ATD” Competence Model and BEST Awards - a free webinar

    The presentation will introduce the ATD Competence Model and explain its correlation with the BEST Award’s application. The BEST Awards recognize organizations that demonstrate enterprise-wide success as a result of employee learning and development. We are looking for organizations that get it: They use the learning function as a strategic business tool to get results. Completing the entry helps an organization to look holistically, critically, and appreciatively at its work. Applicants have commented on how much they learned from participating in the process.

    Award winners must demonstrate that they are excellent in many aspects of the learning function:

    • Learning has an enterprise-wide role: involved in the executive team, creating solutions to business issues, and setting organizational strategy.
    • Learning has value in the organization's culture: learning opportunities for employees, C-level involvement, learning for growth of the organization, and innovation.
    • Learning links to individual and organizational performance: alignment with the business, efficiency, measurement of the effectiveness of learning, and success with non-training solutions for business needs.
    • Investment is made in learning and performance initiatives.
