Training Today Contributor Guidelines


Our publication has been around since 1995. Today it is now a digital edition allowing us to tap into – and share – training and development resources from the Chicagoland area and beyond.

You can see the publication here: http://www.scoop.it/t/atdchi-training-today

Training Today’s digital platform encompasses an online newspaper format. The Training Today Editor curates and monitors the digital publication. While pulling articles and relevant industry information from outside sources, Training Today is always looking for training and development articles written by our members here in the Chicagoland area.

Training and development articles of interest are:

  • Articles that address issues facing professionals in the industry.
  • Articles that offer practical solutions to challenges our members face.
  • Articles that showcase novel approaches to common problems.
  • Articles that discuss new trends and/or directions in the industry.
Articles must be previously published via a website, blog, or other format. Training Today’s online format will pull in the article from its original source.  Contact the Training Today Editor for more information: susanecamberis@att.net

  • Be written in clear, straightforward language, avoiding jargon and technical terms.
