Thursday, January 22, 2015 4:33 PM | Deleted user

Welcome to 2015! As your Rocky Mountain Chapter Presidents team, we are excited to have you be part of the legacy we are building for learning professionals in Colorado.


Our chapter is strong. 2014 was an award-winning year:

  • 100% CORE compliant
  • Super Star Chapter (over 50% of you are also members of ATD international)
  • Two Share our Success awards (For Drink and Draw and The Past and Future Leaders Quorum)
  • Chapter of the month in September 2014 - a first time for our chapter
  • First chapter to complete our brand/name change to ATD from ASTD

 We ended with an increase in all of our key metrics:

  • 216 members
  • Net Revenue of ~$3,000
  • A member retention rate of 56%

Watch for our annual report, which will include more details. We plan to complete this in the next few weeks.


We are financially set to bring you great programs in 2015, and help us start gearing up for the ATD International Conference and Expo (ICE), which is returning to Denver in 2016! We'll share more information about this great opportunity for our learning community as we receive the details. For now, plan on volunteering - the benefit is that for every day you volunteer, you receive a free day of admission.  


While 2014 was a successful story, the richness of this story is you; our members who join us. You are at meetings, webinars, and LinkedIn ATD RMC Rocky Mountain Chapter. You create the ATD RMC buzz. You make our community of learners vibrant.


Now - here's what we need from you:

  1. Please join the community. Block out the second Tuesday of every month for great presentations and networking.
  2. Volunteer! You'll get the most out of your ATD RMC membership by engaging directly, plus it can help you build needed skills for learning professional mastery. Email Sue Fody at volunteer@atdrmc.org to learn about our volunteer opportunities.
  1. Talk to us. If you see ways to improve our community - voice it. You can discuss with your ATD RMC officers at our meetings, or email us at president@atdrmc.org .
  2. Thank our sponsors - Regis University and Gene Tognacci, for supporting our chapter. If you would like to be an ATD RMC sponsor, email Tara Powers at sponsorships@atdrmc.org .
  3. Use our ChIP code (Chapter Incentive Program) CH6046 when you purchase books, or attend an ATD conference. We made $1,700 from ChIP in 2014!

Thank you for your on-going support. We look forward to meeting you virtually or at our 2015 meetings!
