Here's what our board members are saying about ATD Rocky Mountain Chapter membership!
I wanted to get involved for more professional development opportunities. I have served on the Chapter's board for several years in different positions. I enjoy these volunteer opportunities in which I have opportunities to continue to build my skill-set. Additionally, I thrive on networking. I was fortunate to attend the annual All Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C. to learn new and better ways of supporting the Rocky Mountain Chapter.”
Yvonne Bogard, 2017 President, 2016 President-Elect, 2015 VP Virtual Programs; 2012-2014 VP Technology and Social Media
Being a board member for the past three years has been a great experience. I have become more involved in the Learning and Development community, met people that have provided me new opportunities that I wouldn't have otherwise, and learned some new strategies and techniques that I have already put to use with much success. I am so grateful to be a part of this group!
Tara Powers, 2015 VP Sponsorships, 2012-2014 VP Communications
Being a member of the ATD Rocky Mountain Chapter has been extremely beneficial. As a member, I learned about and participated in the Virtual CPLP Study Group, a resource which was instrumental in helping me achieve the CPLP certification. Additionally, I continue be amazed by knowledge gained from attending the chapter events. The diverse topics keep it interesting and I always walk away with at least one tool or approach that can be immediately applied to my various projects. These experiences, in addition to the networking opportunities that occur in conjunction with involvement, enable me to be active and current in the talent development domain.
Shannon Wzientek, CPLP, 2017 VP of CPLP Study Groups
What I have found beneficial in being a member is how I have gotten connected to so many people. First, I started making connections by attending local Chapter meetings and just networking. Then I joined the board, became a Power Member and started connecting with other professionals in the Denver area - from SHRM and Total Rewards. In addition to meeting people, joining the board has helped me improve my leadership and relationship building skills. Our meeting have given me intite into trends in the Learning and Development and Human Resources spaces - things I can think about or take back and use in my company.
