    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

    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.

    Background

    Our bylaws were last updated in July 2015 in order to address the National Association’s name change from American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) to Association for Talent Development (ATD). 


    Reason for Updating

    Originally, we planned to update the bylaws to remove references to the President-Elect and Past President roles as a way to shorten the Presidential tenure from 3 years to 1 year. After reviewing and discussing those proposed changes with National ATD, we decided to keep the President-Elect and Past President roles to remain consistent with the ATD bylaws template. Instead, our proposed 2019 bylaws incorporate the most up-to-date language from the ATD bylaws template, add further clarification to some processes, and remove/update some language to give the Chapter more flexibility in conducting its business.


    Review and Voting Processes

    Article VII. Amendment and Modification of Bylaws states that:

    ·  Notice of any potential change must be published and distributed to the membership at least 30 calendar days prior to voting on such measures. 

    ·  Adoption of any motion to amend or modify the Bylaws requires a vote of two thirds of members in good standing voting in mail ballot.

    ·  Notice of changes to the Bylaws are to be published or distributed no later than 60 days following adoption.


    Timeline

    July 15, 2019:     Beginning of the 30-day review period for Chapter members. 

    August 15, 2019: Voting on the proposed changes opens

    August 23, 2019: Voting on proposed changed closes

    August 28, 2019: Results published in our weekly ATD NYC Blog Post/Update email

    Note: There are no proposed bylaw changes that would prevent our 2020 Nomination/Election processes from continuing as planned.
