A Message from the President

Out with the Old – In with the New. Bye-Bye 2020 and WELCOME 2021.

Talent Development Professionals in the Greater Atlanta Area, it is time to MOVE FORWARD. Greater Atlanta leadership have spent the past four-months – Learning by Doing to move forward in the chapter. We did not just discuss and put together strategic plans for 2021. You can now visibly see the efforts produced by your 12 Executive Leadership Team. The relationship formed through the tasks we took on before our roles officially began have brought us together in a way I did not foresee. One task (overall the old website) required ALL-HANDS and they rose to the occasion for YOU.

We asked ourselves “Who Are Our Members?” and We came back with a list from Trainers/Facilitators, HR/OD Professionals, Instructional Designers, Talent Development Managers and Leaders, Learning Technologists and many more. Then we ask, “How can we transform their experience?”
