Unbelievable that the summer is almost over! I hope you have managed to enjoy your summer by spending time with family, friends, and also took time for personal and professional development! For example, my last week was highlighted by a group facilitation engagement, the ACE conference, and tubing with my family down the Chattahoochee! What a great week!
Let me focus in on ACE for a moment. If you weren’t there, wow did you miss and incredible event! We had the CEO and President of ATD, Tony Bingham as our morning keynote, and Bill Treasurer as the afternoon keynote, plus a talent development Leadership Panel at the end of the day. But that’s not all! There were three sets of concurrent sessions, an exhibition hall, fantastic raffle prizes, a book sale, a silent auction, and even more! What a fantastic event! I’d like to thank ACE Director, Andrea Goodwin and her team for doing such dedicated work for our members. The following is a list of the volunteers that made ACE come together this year:
