Board and Chapter Volunteer Opportunities

Chapter is still searching for a President, President-elect, and VP Membership. You can learn more about these roles here: 2019 Board of Directors Information. If you are interested email contact@atdnyc.org or talk with any Board member. We know the President/President-Elect roles require a significant commitment and the Board is working to shorten the time frame from 3 years to 2. You would serve 6 months as President-Elect, a year as President, and then 6 months as Immediate Past President.  That change will require an update of our bylaws so be on the lookout for more information coming soon.  

There are also several AVP and committee roles available.  If you are interested and want to learn more about these opportunities, visit the Volunteer section of our website or contact rosemary.okoiti@atdnyc.org.

ATD International Conference and Exposition

The ATD International Conference is being held in the Washington DC area on May 19-22. Oprah is scheduled to keynote. If you are interested in going or have already signed up, let us know. Once we have 5 attendees – we are at 3 right now – we can form a Chapter Team and that qualifies you for lower rates: $1325 for ATD members and $1625 for those that members of ATD NYC only. Those rates are over $300 less than the current regular registration fees which go up again on April 12. If you’re interested, email us at contact@atdnyc.org.  If you've already registered, you’ll qualify for a refund of any amount above the Chapter Team Rates.  Let us know.

NYC Gains Large Chapter Status

We learned that our Chapter will now be considered a Large Chapter and have access to more support through ATD.  ATD revised its chapter size criteria. Large Chapter status now requires a chapter to consistently maintain a membership average of 300 members or more.

We were listed as a Medium-size Chapter under the previous criteria of consistently maintaining a membership average of 350 members or more.  We teetered on the edge of Medium and Large Chapter status for months. We were seeing an improvement in our membership numbers, reaching 377 in March, prior to the implementation of the new criteria. 

CPLP Study Group Interest?

One of our members is interested in participating in a CPLP Study group. If you are interested in helping form a study group, please email contact@atdnyc.org.

Talent Development Book Club

The Talent Development Book Club is beginning to discuss its 4th selection, The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. Finish reading chapters 1 and 2 by April 18th. Denis Sternberg of getAbstract has provided us with a summary of the book. You can find it and more information on our website.
