2015 ATD-PHL President, Jaclyn Reimel
I hope you all enjoyed the holidays and are ready to kick off a new year with exciting events and networking opportunities offered through ATD-PHL.
I would like to thank our former President, Mike Brenner, for his leadership in 2014. As a result of Mike’s guidance and support, we accomplished so much as a chapter and even received our first “Share Our Success” award from ATD National. I look forward to Mike’s continued leadership not only as our past president, but as our 2015 ATD-PHL regional conference chair. Be sure to save the date for our fourth annual regional conference on Wednesday, May 6th!
This year, our 2015 Board of Directors will focus on our theme to “connect talent development strategies with practical application.” Our goal is to continue to provide our members with opportunities to develop, share best practices, keep up with talent development trends, and network. This involves expanding our meeting format for chapter events and special interest groups to include a variety of panels, case studies, and roundtables. Another focus this year is to enhance member engagement by increasing our social media and online presence through sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, and our chapter website. We hope you’ll take advantage of all ATD-PHL has to offer!
As a reminder, ATD-PHL is partnering with PSPS for this month’s chapter event titled "Five Workplace Predictions for the Next Five Years Leading Into 2020!" presented by Jeanne Meister. The event starts at 7:30am and will take place at the Crowne Plaza in King of Prussia, PA. We are very excited for Jeanne to share the 5 major trends that will impact talent acquisition, development, and engagement in the 2020 workplace and how we can prepare for these changes. More information on this event is listed below.
Thank you for your continued support and involvement with ATD-PHL. If you’re interested in volunteering, we invite you to connect with a member of the board for more information!
Here’s to another great year ahead!
