Come and celebrate with us! September is turning out to be a great month. For starts, your chapter has been selected as the September Chapter of the month.


This is an achievement we should all be proud of. We received this prestigious award (there are 120 chapters in the U.S.) because of meeting our chapter operating requirements (CORE), and our innovative programs, specifically "Drink and Draw" and our "Past and Future Leaders Quorum". If you missed these, stay tuned...I have a feeling they will return in 2015.


This is the first time that our chapter has received this recognition. Many thanks to our volunteers, members and board for making our chapter vibrant.


Last week, 30 of you joined us with guest speaker Carol Clark from Game on Learning. She showed us why and how we should use gamification, and how we can leverage experiential learning we are already doing.


Ken Phillips held a webinar earlier this month on Level 2 assessments, and he'll be in Denver October 2nd for a live event on Level 3, and then wrap up with a follow-up webinar on Level 1. Feedback from the first webinar has been very good, and we hope to see you on October 2nd to learn more. Make your training more impactful and be able to measure and share the results.


The Facilitator's Exchange, an ATD-RMC Special Interest Group (SIG) kicked off with a lively discussion of how to increase engagement in both live and virtual learning. If you facilitate, please join us for the second meeting of

Facilitator's Exchange on Thursday, October 16th.


Your chapter continues to thrive. Today we have $28,079.72 in the bank, which covers a year of expenses, as part of our Chapter Operating Requirements (CORE). We currently have 218 members.


The best way to get the most out of your chapter is to jump in and get involved. Volunteering is a way to grow in your profession and leadership. We have great opportunities available - especially in the area of marketing, programming, and membership. Please contact me or Sue Fody for more information at .


We are here to serve you. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. You can email me at

Thank you,

Becky Magnotta
