ASTD Board Member

Last month I was elected to be on the board for the Charlotte Chapter of ASTD. I’ve been a member of ASTD on and off for about nine years and am excited about serving on the board for such a great chapter.

Tomorrow I am headed to Arlington, Virginia for the ASTD Chapter Leaders Conference. The lineup of speakers is impressive, and I’m really looking forward to hearing Bob Pike–the guru of all things training/learning.

Opening General Session: Afterburner
Working together to sculpt a masterpiece—tips from fighter pilots on achieving optimal team performance

Keynote: Andrea Nierenberg
The Art of Networking and Relationship Building

Closing Keynote: Bob Pike
Sculpting a “Successful Attitude”: How You Think Does Make a Difference

There are lots of concurrent sessions as well.

I’m also looking forward to seeing my friend Paul Signorelli and meeting some new faces in learning.

  2. Congratulations! I am just getting caught up on my feeds and saw this. Too funny as I was just elected to be on the board of my local chapter as well – VP of Technology for CIASTD. It is a brand new position so I am looking forward to a year of building a vision for the future. Nothing like a white canvas. 😉
