As we kick off 2018, our first blog post of the year is a welcome message from this year's Chapter President Anthony Dudek. Thank you, Anthony!
We’re looking at a great year filled with events and learning and I invite you to join us for what will surely be one of our best years yet. I personally am very grateful for the chance to lead such a dynamic team for such a great Chapter! Our compass is Advance, Build, Connect, and Engage and this is how we’ll be living that in the coming year. Our goal is to be the Chicago area’s one-stop shop for all things talent development. How can we help you achieve your dreams?
We will continue our work in advancing the science and the art of talent development in the Chicago area. That’s really at the core of what we do. Ensuring that ATD’s Competency Model and its Areas of Expertise is widely understood and used in the Chicago area is a multi-year mission of our Chapter.
We reach out to the larger community in the Chicago area building relationships with companies, our sponsors, our fellow associations through the Chicago Alliance, and of course the universities that we partner with to bring the message home to Chicago’s students.
We connect on a personal level with our members through a variety of methods. If you come out to one of our events this year make sure that you meet our very active Board Members who want to hear about your ideas and needs for our Chapter and for our profession.
We will engage with our membership and with the larger Talent Development Community by our activities we promote: our Mentoring program, the Events that we design, and the Workplace Learning and Performance Institute.
All the best,
Anthony Dudek, MS, CPLP
Chicagoland Chapter ATD
