The transition of one year to the next invites reflection and reassessment. This is keenly felt by Talent Developers, who often use this time to focus their inherent love of learning on their own personal and professional growth. We watch TED Talks; we listen to podcasts; we read articles passed around LinkedIn. But how much of all this free-flowing "casual knowledge" do we actually retain and apply?

You will be better able to choose actions for greater impact and success.

Welcome to ATD Chicagoland Chapter!
Whether you are a brand new member or a member who is getting reacquainted with the chapter, we want to personally welcome you to the chapter. As we are a rather large chapter with many benefits, events, and programs, it can be overwhelming to feel connected and become acquainted with all the chapter has to offer.
We'd like to help you get better acquainted with chapter benefits, services, and opportunities during our next Member Orientation session. To make it easy for you to participate, the Member Orientation session is held virtually -- you can participate from wherever you are either by telephone or Zoom web conference. Each Member Orientation session lasts about 30 minutes and includes ample time for your questions about the chapter, its resources, and benefits.
New members (or current members who would like a refresher) are invited to attend our next Member Orientation Session. If you would like to participate, please register at least two hours prior to the date of the Orientation. You will then receive instructions on how to call in or join the web conference via Zoom. This session is for new members or current members only (no guests).
