    To address the unique workforce challenges brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, the Association for Talent Development (ATD) has organized the ATD Virtual Conference: Building Capabilities and Connection, taking place June 1-5. Stay on top of what’s going on in the talent development industry and how today’s trends and solutions can be incorporated into your company’s practices to help advance the bottom line.

    The ATD Virtual Conference offers everything an in-person conference would, at a fraction of the cost. At only $395 (ATD national members) / $495 (ATD NYC-only members or non-members), this conference will provide all of the professional development you would expect from attending an in-person event for a much lower financial investment.

    The ATD Virtual Conference will have more than 100 hours of content covering every area of talent development. There will be experts delivering real-time keynote addresses, visionaries from the learning and development community communicating with attendees during their sessions, and relevant on-demand sessions that I can watch throughout the week.

    Additionally, networking is an enormous part of this event! Even though the event takes place online, there will be many chances to meet in groups or one-on-one with other attendees. Especially now, hearing how your peers are meeting the challenges of today, like training a dispersed workforce, will provide invaluable insights.

    If you want to stay relevant in your profession, you have to know the latest trends and how to implement them in your organization. With sessions covering every facet of Talent Development, as well as trendsetting speakers, there is no better place to take the pulse of the industry than ATD Virtual Conference.

    If at least five members of our ATD NYC chapter register for the conference, you’ll save $25 per registration [$370 (ATD national members) / $470 (ATD NYC-only member or non-members)]. If you are interested, contact ATD by completing our form or via email at chapterteams@td.org. Chapter teams will be established when at least five registrations from the chapter are received.

    Have 5 or more members of your company that want to attend? You’ll get the same savings of $25 per registration. Join online together and save!

    1. What three words describe you and why?

    Three words that would describe me are (1) sarcastic- I am rarely serious and I try to have fun but that's mostly by being quite sarcastic. I guess it's because I grew up in NJ! (2) analytical- I tend to focus on what can be measured and what can be done both in professional and personal life. (3) supportive- I try to support my learners, my clients, and my ATD community. 

    2. What is/was your volunteer role?

    I am the Co-Chair of the People Analytics SIG 

    3. What do you/did you love about volunteering for ATD NYC? How has the experience changed you?

    The best part of volunteering with ATD NYC is the community. The people that are a part of ATD NYC represent a wonderful community of professionals. I have learned a lot from the community and I love sharing my knowledge with the ATD NYC community as well. The experience of volunteering with ATD NYC has helped me grow more aware of the ways the different parts of talent development impact the business and how we all have ways of contributing to an organization's success.  

    4. What career development opportunities are you exploring in the next one year?

    I have found the coaching SIG to be really beneficial for learning new and innovative coaching techniques. I will also continue learning more analytics tools. Depending on time I might try to learn how to code in Python in addition to R. As part of my work at Talent Metrics we're always focusing on creating better analytical approaches and are often faced with new problems that require new skills. When you work on specialized projects you're always learning new things! 

    5. What advice would you give to a Chapter member who is considering volunteering today? 

    If you can do it, it's worth your time. Find a way that you think you can contribute and do that. Your professional network can help you find vendors, find new positions, find new learning opportunities and ATD is a great network to be a part of. It's a big time commitment but with many things you get what you put into it. 

    6. What is the best way to get in touch with you and/or your social media links, website, email address?

     By email sy@talentmetrics.io or at my LinkedIn page /Twitter: @IOsyislam Linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/in/sislam/ Website: www.talentmetrics.io

    1. What three words describe you and why?

    Positive, light-hearted, calming presence

    I’ve gotten this feedback from many people in my life as well as the coaching clients I serve.  I am a “half-glass full” person, even now with the COVID-19 pandemic, looking for silver linings and expressing gratitude for everything I do have.  I love making people laugh with my silly humor.  The latest:  When I pass a fellow mask-wearing doorman on my street, I say “You must be my relative”.  They all laugh.  And, by continually accessing my inner calm, I am a source of calm for others.

    2. What is/was your volunteer role?

    I have been Co-Chair of the Career Development SIG for 3 years with Rob Hellman.  Before that, I was Co-Chair of the Coaching SIG with Joyce Grillo for 2 years.

    3. What do you/did you love about volunteering for ATD NYC? How has the experience changed you?

    I “entered” the ATD NYC community by attending a Coaching SIG meeting, and then becoming a member.  It’s the warm, welcoming and committed members and leaders that sustain my commitment, not to mention that the many ATD NYC programs and events (pre-Covid) make membership a huge bargain.  And, I have developed sustainable friendships along the way.

    4. What career development opportunities are you exploring in the next one year?

    As a career and Encore career coach (mid-life reinvention and retirement), I have all the coaching clients I need and want. (I am grateful). I focus on continuing to develop my skills and knowledge in these areas.

    5. What advice would you give to a Chapter member who is considering volunteering today? 

    Volunteering for ATD NYC has so many benefits.  It’s a way to: contribute to your professional community, meet and work with really great people, an opportunity to network, develop skills, knowledge and potentially leadership skills - and in this era of social isolation, an outstanding way to stay connected.

    6. What is the best way to get in touch with you and/or your social media links, website, email address?

    ATD NYC Career Development SIG Webinar: Resilience

    Barbara Phillips, Co-Chair of the ATD NYC Career Development SIG, recently recorded a 30-minute webinar, Building Resilience in Uncertain Times: 5 Effective Strategies, sponsored by Partners International.  It specifically focuses on navigating the current COVID-19 pandemic. We are making this timely recording available to ATD NYC Members and site visitors.

    Building Resilience in Uncertain Times: 5 Effective Strategies

    A recorded 30-minute webinar to help navigate the days ahead

    PDF: ATD NYC Career Development SIG Webinar- Resilience.pdf


    Learning Objectives

    -  Definition of resilience

    -  Typical reactionsto change

    -  5 Strategies for building resilience in the “COVID-19 era”

    -  Additional tips


    Emotional Responses to the “New Normal”

    -  If you are feeling greater anxiety and fear in this uncertain environment, this is normal. You are not alone.

    -  While we can’t predict how long the “new normal” will last, we do know that it will end.

    -  Focus on taking good care of yourself and your loved ones as your first priority.  Be gentle with yourself if you are not feeling as productive as you would like.

    -  Activate your personal social network (virtually) to reduce any feelings of social isolation.

    -  Do your best to stay calm and “in the present”.  BREATHE.

    -  Identify what you CAN control in a time when many of us are feeling like we have no control

    -  Consider financial contingency planning for the near-term “just in case”

    -  Do your best to focus on what IS working vs. what isn’t working

    -  We WILL get through this together, one day at a time

    1. What three words describe you and why?

    Compassionate, intelligent, genuine because I am always putting people first and genuinely believe that everyone is far more capable than they think.

    2. What is/was your volunteer role?

    Right now, I’m working on compiling our power members and interviewing them for use on social media and the chapter’s website. Also, looking to get more involved outside of that, a role that will enable me meet some more of the passionate people of the training and development field.

    3. What do you/did you love about volunteering for ATD NYC? How has the experience changed you?

    I love that we are all like-minded individuals. Everyone is so nice and willing to help each other. It’s allowed me to meet people that I normally wouldn’t have been able to through traditional networking. It’s a great opportunity to learn from others as well.

    4. What career development opportunities are you exploring in the next one year?

    I’m looking to explore the CPTD through ATD as well as learning more about AI and its impact on learning design.

    5. What advice would you give to a Chapter member who is considering volunteering today? 

    It doesn’t take a ton of time to volunteer for the chapter and the time you do invest is worth it. You meet great people while learning a ton. That only helps to further your career and personal development.

    We hope everyone is taking the appropriate precautions against the current coronovirus outbreak.

    ATD NYC events are being impacted. We ask for your patience as we work to reschedule some events and move others to virtual environments.

    We’ll be updating the events as well as sending updates to those registered. 

  • 12/29/2019 9:38 PM | Gregory Simpson (Administrator)

    As the year comes to a close, I want to thank the 2019 Board for all their work in moving our chapter forward this year and welcome the 2020 Board as they assume their leadership roles.

    To recognize the service of our 2019 Board members, we've moved beyond paper certificates to digital badges. The 2019 ATD NYC Board of Directors Badge provides information on the expectations of each Board Member's role as well as specifics on their accomplishments in the role. These badges can be shared on LinkedIn and/or social channels and serve as a representation of the accomplishments the receiver has attained. 


    The following members have earned this badge:

                 

    These portraits were part of our 2019 Holiday Party festivities.  Special thanks to Anne Gibbons for drawing them.

    Ann even created portraits to welcome our 2020 Board members:

                  


    And Ann also included Art Weiss, our Chapter Administrator for the last 21 years!

    ATD NYC: What You Need to Know – October 23, 2019


    Another Pivot for ATD NYC News

    Welcome to the 30th and final “ATD NYC: What You Need to Know Blog Post.” Over the last two years, we’ve worked to find the best way to communicate chapter news to our members.  We started in 2018 with videos and then moved to infographics. In 2019, we tried adding the “ATD NYC Top 3” to the beginning of our weekly emails and finally, we began to use the Blog section of our website and provided a link to our posts in our weekly email. 

    In the end, nothing has been able to attract readership. So, this will be the last ATD NYC News Blog Post…for now.  We’ll continue to discuss how we can best communicate with you, our members, as our new Board plans for 2020.  Until then, we’ll return to the pre-2018 format of our weekly Wednesday eblast that will let you know about upcoming events.

    As always, we welcome your feedback. You can email gregory.simpson@atdnyc.org with your suggestions or to schedule some time to talk.


    Holiday Party – What Can You Share?

    Our 2019 Holiday Party is on December 18th at WeWork’s Bryant Park location (same as last year’s event). We are looking to energize the party to encourage a festive networking event full of fun. That’s where you come in! Do you have a skill (singing, dancing, playing an instrument, art, etc.) that you can use to encourage a small group of ATD members to participate with you?

    To learn more or to secure your spot on our holiday program, contact Gabrielle Bayme (gabrielle.bayme@atdnyc.org) or Rosemary Okoiti (rosemary.okoiti@atdnyc.org)
