Please don’t miss the opportunity to hear from Kelly Palmer, former Chief Learning Officer of LinkedIn! 

This session will talk about how “learning is being disrupted” in major ways in the corporate world and why there has never been a more exciting time to be in the learning field.

The topics will address:

  1. Trends that are causing this disruption in the workplace and how these trends are changing and shaping the way we need to think about learning and development in the future.
  2.  How she and others have created forward-thinking learning and career transformation strategies that incorporate digital transformation and help people take control of their own careers and learning.

  3. Changing role of the Chief Learning Officer and how roles in the learning organization need to change to adapt to both digital and workforce disruption.

Don't forget about our 2018 Holiday Helping Drive!

To give back to our community during this holiday season we have chosen to make a donation from our chapter to Dream Weavers of Georgia.    Dream Weavers is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of foster children.  We spoke with Dream Weavers and found out exactly what they most need and here’s what they said:

  • Diapers – preemie and newborn
  • Wipes – sensitive/no fragrance if possible
  • Burp cloths
  • Newborn pacifiers
  • Teethers
  • New clothing – preemie and newborn
  • Monetary donations – these funds are used to support the medical, educational, emotional and social well-being needs of children in care

You can bring donations to the December chapter meeting or donate online directly from the Dream Weavers web page.  Thank you for your generosity for these littlest ones in our community who most benefit from love and care.
