    Summer is just around the corner, and we hope this finds you invigorated and growing!

    The biggest news is that ASTD is changing its name and brand!  We are now ATD - the Association for Talent Development.  You can read more about the thinking behind the change at www.astdnews.org. This means a name/brand change for not only the national chapter, but your local chapter too.  We are developing our plan, but watch as you’ll see more with our website, newsletters, and more.  Yvonne Bogard is coordinating these efforts which includes legal and financial concerns, communication branding, marketing, domain names, email addresses, change of addresses, registration with the state and more. Thank you for your support as we all work towards making the new name as recognizable as the old.

    Your chapter is healthy and growing. As of the writing of this newsletter, we have $23,916 in the bank, which covers a year of expenses, as part of our Chapter Operating Requirements (CORE).  We currently have 217 members.

    As part of your membership, remember you are now a member of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce by our chapter’s membership to the Chamber.  Sue Fody, VP of Volunteer Engagement, has attended a couple Chamber classes, and highly recommends them.  To take advantage of this benefit, go to the links and information on our web site.

    We continue to have a great year of programs.  Lou Russell gave pointers on project management for trainers, which were great for the novice and experienced program manager alike.  I’m especially excited about our June speaker, Timothy LaMacchio, “Collaborating with Frontline Managers to Improve Business Results”.  Anybody who develops, designs or delivers training to frontline managers needs to join us on June 19th at the Regis South Campus.  Details are on our site. 

    With summer vacations, we’ve decided to not have an event in July, and on August 21st we partner with the National Speakers Forum and the International Coaching Federation for a fun networking event at The Living Room on Broadway.  Watch for details in future newsletters.

    Thank you for your continued support and contribution to our community. Your participation, thoughts and energy keep us strong and help us thrive.  I encourage you to make the most of your membership by joining us at meetings, and volunteering.  Volunteering is a great way to expand your skills and knowledge, and helps you get and stay connected to the Denver learning community.

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

    Thank you,

    We hope you are weathering the storms and enjoying those every increasing sunny days.

     

    Much has happened since my last message. The biggest news is that we were just recognized as a SuperStar chapter. This means we met all the 18 CORE (Chapter Operating Requirements), and over 50% of our members are Power Members (have local and National membership).  Fewer than 20% of ASTD chapters received this designation in 2014.

     

    Your chapter is healthy and growing. As of the writing of this newsletter, we have $23,476 in the bank, which covers a year of expenses.  We currently have 209 members.

     

    As an added value to you, in March we joined the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.  The benefit to you is access to networking and business training events. As we learn more, we'll have links and information on our web site so you can take advantage of this benefit.

     

    Programs are essential for keeping our learning community strong. In March, our second annual Activity Summit was energetic.  30 members jumped into several fun and energizing activities presented by Sue Fody, Barb Smith, Lauran Arledge, Sandi Ruthers and me.

     

    April and May feature some heavy hitters in ASTD.  Last week, Jim Smith, Jr. impacted 44 of us! We now have "No Excuses" to remove self-created barriers and all the ways we box ourselves in.  After the meeting, we left empowered and ready to take on new challenges.  If you missed him, have no fear; I have a feeling this popular presenter will be back in 2015!

     

    On May 1st in the Tivoli building on the Metro campus, Lou Russell, another ASTD rock star, will give us pointers on project management for trainers.  We can all use some tips to help training run more smoothly. Please join us and pass the word on to other trainers.

     

    Thank you for your continued support and contribution to our community. Your participation, thoughts and energy keep us strong and help us thrive.  I encourage you to make the most of your membership by joining us at meetings, and volunteering. Volunteering is a great way to expand your skills and knowledge, and helps you get and stay connected to the Denver learning community.

    Happy Spring!

     

    March started with an energetic meeting of nine Past ASTD-RMC Presidents, current board members and several new members as we discussed how to build community, provide you with value for your membership, and keep your organization strong into the future. I am grateful and energized by all who joined us. You are a symbol of our vibrant community.

     

    This group gave the board great ideas to review. As we work through the ideas, we'll be putting out ideas and requests to continue the 2014 momentum. Please join our LinkedIn ASTD-RMC Chapter Member Group to be a part of this energy.

     

    Our community is growing! We've had a 6% increase in members since the beginning of the year. Welcome to all of our new members! I'd also like to introduce you to two new board members.

     

    Sid Basu was elected unanimously as Chapter Treasurer. He will help us maintain the financial health and smart stewardship of our funds so we can bring you vibrant programming and benefits to being a member.

     

    Robin Doss joins us as Vice President of Professional Development. Robin has been a member and engaged volunteer, and we look forward to her professionalism as we put together programming that meets your needs. You can contact her at RDoss@astdrmc.org.

     

    You can read more about Sid and Robin under the About tab and select Chapter Leadership option. 

     

    Our calendar continues to build. We have events where we learn from each other and some of the bigger names in the ASTD Community. The line up includes experiential learning in our second annual Activity Summit in March. On April 17 ,you'll be JimPacted when Jim Smith, Jr. gives an energetic keynote on being authentic and no excuses. On May 1, Lou Reed will give us tools on Project Management for Learning Professionals.

     

    Besides robust programming, we are introducing more value to being an ASTD-RMC member. Members can attend our webinars at no charge, and receive discounts for events with affiliate organizations. Coming soon, we are joining the Denver Chamber of Commerce, which means as a member of ASTD-RMC, you receive Denver Chamber member benefits.  

     

    Watch for more information on our website and in LinkedIn. Also, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns or requests. You can email me at BMagnotta@astdrmc.org.

     

    Thank you for being our community. We hope to see you at a future event, and on-line.
