October 2014 - President's Message

"Excellent firms don't believe in excellence - only in constant improvement and constant change."
- Tom Peters

Every October ATD National has an All Leaders' Conference (ALC), which is a convention for board members to share ideas to improve our chapters. This year Robin Doss (2014 VP Professional Development and 2015 President Elect), Yvonne Bogard (2014 VP Technology and 2015 VP Virtual Programs) and I attended this two-day conference in Washington, DC in early October.

We focused on topics at ALC to make ATD-RMC vibrant and meaningful for you, and to learn how to ensure your chapter is managed well. In 2015, you will see many of the great ideas we collected at ALC be put into practice. Our chapter was specifically recognized at ALC for how quickly we implemented the change in our name and brand. In addition, we were recognized for the
September Chapter of the Month, and for our two "Share Our Strengths" submissions.

An additional bonus at ALC was the time we spent meeting and collaborating with board members from the Pike's Peak (Colorado Springs) and Northern Rockies (Ft. Collins) chapters. We will see benefits from these conversations as we better support each other and collaborate in 2015.

An exciting ALC announcement is that Sandi Ruther (ATD-RMC Chapter President in 2011) will be our National Advisor for Chapters (NAC) in 2015. Sandi has been a great supporter for many of us, and her role as liaison between National and your chapter will also help us improve in 2015 and beyond.

Back in Colorado, nearly 30 of you joined us on October 2nd with guest speaker Ken Phillips in a live event about how to create effective surveys to capture Level 3 (behavioral) improvements from your training. With this event and his two webinars, we have tools to make our training events more impactful and measurable data to share with decision makers.

Your chapter continues to thrive. Today we have $27,906.58 in the bank, which covers a year of expenses, as part of our Chapter Operating Requirements (CORE). We currently have 218 members.

I'm excited about the strength of our 2015 board which includes Michele Padilla as President, and newly elected Robin Doss as President Elect. I'll provide details about the rest of your 2015 board in our year-end report. Board members are just one way to be a chapter volunteer. The main benefit of volunteering is to gain or build skills, and to network in your professional community. Contact me (president@atdrmc.org ) or Sue Fody (volunteer@atdrmc.org ) and let us know how we can help you.

We hope you will join us for our final two events this year. On November 20th, Nathan Lindsey returns to the Regis South Campus to help us delve into dynamic human interaction within the workplace. Finally, we'll wrap up the year with our Holiday Celebration on Thursday, December 11th. Please save the date for an evening of fun, networking and celebration to thank you for being part of the ATD-RMC award-winning year.

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

Thank you,

Becky Magnotta
2014 ATD Rocky Mountain Chapter President
