ATD NYC: What You Need to Know – July 24, 2019

Bylaws Update: Member Review Period

To keep our post more concise, we’ve created a standalone News post about our proposed bylaws updates.  You can find more information here: https://atdnyc.org/news/7801639

If you have any questions or concerns, please email contact@atdnyc.org and we will respond to you as quickly as possible.

2020 Board Elections: Nominations Open

We opened the nomination process for the 2020 Board on Monday, July 22nd (see email sent on Monday, July 22nd titled: “Apply Now for the 2020 ATD NYC Board of Directors - Deadline Friday, August 2nd”). You can learn more about the benefits of being a Board Member and read about each of our one-year Board roles here: 2020 Board of Directors Information. You can also email contact@atdnyc.org or talk with any Board member if you have questions.

Our goal is to have the new Board identified/ratified by the end of September so that they have the opportunity to attend the Chapter Leaders Conference in mid-October. The new Board would not take office until January 1, 2020.

2020 ATD Regional Conference Volunteers Needed

Last week, we announced our 1st annual Greater New York ATD Regional Conference.  ATD NYC, along with our sister chapters from Philadelphia, Long Island, Northern New Jersey, Mid-New Jersey, and Eastern Pennsylvania, is working to plan the premiere talent development conference of 2020. If you would like to be part of the conference planning/implementation team, see the Volunteer Section below for opportunities.

ATD NYC Holiday Party Entertainment Committee Volunteers Needed

At this year’s ATD NYC holiday party we’d like to have music, dancing, and possibly other forms of entertainment in addition to the usual food, drinks, and networking.

We are assembling a small committee of volunteers to help plan and coordinate the entertainment component of this event.

Volunteers will help answer these questions:

  • Is there a way to have the entertainment for this event come from the many ATD NYC members who are also actors, musicians, artists?       Could this be a nice way to showcase some of our members’ other talents? If we did this, how could we do it in a format that doesn’t distract from the networking component of the event?
  • Music:
    • What type of music do we want? Live or recorded? DJ or curated playlist?
    • Should we have background music throughout or only have music for part of the event?
    • What type of instruments, sound system, and/or equipment would we need and how could we get it at low cost?
  • Other:
    • What other types of artistic skills could we leverage from among our members? (visual art, dancing, comedy, acting, etc.)

Please contact Gabrielle Bayme (gabrielle.bayme@atdnyc.org) if you wish to volunteer for this committee. 

Chapter Volunteer Opportunities

There are several Associate Vice President (AVP) and other roles available. We are also working to identify people for the following roles with our 2020 ATD Regional Conference: Committee Chairpersons and Support Staff
