Job Board – Two Postings
There is an opening for a Program Manager to support the CUNY partnership with the Department of Correction. This role will initially focus on project managing the development of several key eLearning modules. Learn more: https://www.rfcuny.org/careers/postings?pvnID=PS-1907-003172
An Institute is looking for a dynamic instructor to lead an “Instruct the Instructor” class. They would like a professional trainer to share tips and tricks on how to be a better instructor, tools to engage, key strategies, a simple “how to”. The class is planned for a half or full day session in NYC. If interested, reach out to email@example.com.
On October 29th, the Chapter is partnering with Sententia and Pfizer to present The Gamification of Learning: A Certification for Talent Development and HR Professionals. This full-day certification course is for L&D and HR professionals interested in using gamification to improve their learning and training programs. You can also earn CPLP, SHRM, and HRCI Recertification Credit for attending.
To hold the course, we need a minimum of 12 attendees by October 7th. We currently have 5 people registered. Sign up today to take advantage of this opportunity.
To get an idea of what you’ll learn, join us for our Chapter Webinar on September 26th at noon. See Events in the Next 8 Days below.

Meeting Space Assistance
We are asking for your help in identify meeting space for our Chapter events, SIG events, or workshops. As a non-profit, we rely on our members to help. Talk to any Board member or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have available space or have suggestions for us to pursue.
CPLP Study Group
Our CPLP Study group now has 4 members. If you would like to join them, please email email@example.com. You can also find study tools in the ATD Store.
Note: The CPLP exams will be changing in line with the ATD Competency Model revamp. Updated preparatory materials are expected to be available in early 2020. I would encourage you to direct any chapter members who are interested in pursuing the CPLP or APTD in the near future to reach out to our certification team with further questions.

Comments: (38% commented)
- Speaker & venue were great!
- Make time for a little networking before the presentation - with drinks. And ensure it is clear who is there for the event/networking vs hanging around wework. Also pls make sure the space is mostly private. At the beginning of the event it seemed like there were a lot of loud/distracting conversations happening in the space among non-event-goers.
- It was my first ATDNY event and it would have been helpful if the timing was more clearly detailed, i.e., the specific blocks of time for networking and for the program. The event itself was great - Maeve was terrific!
- Host at a quieter setting (less background noise), introduce new members
- I got more out of the networking aspect of the event than the presentation. The speaker was difficult to hear and didn't go as deep into the subject as I had hoped. It was the type of high level stuff on the subject that most of us have heard before. I'd like to see more interactive facilitated events on the chapter level rather than just speakers.
