President's Message

To current Members and Friends of the Association of  Talent Development, Southern Connecticut Chapter  (Connecticut’s ONLY Chapter), as the new Chapter President, I’d like to welcome you to the second half of 2022. We continue to successfully execute on our mission to give talent development  professionals a forum to network, learn, and share. 2022 had a great start as we continued virtual programming, and we finally came together in-person in June for a successful networking event.  

In this message, I will provide a chapter update, introduce you to the board and invite you to connect with the chapter and myself online.

Chapter update: 

Membership is down for 2022 and financially the chapter has remained in good standing with small operating expenses due to virtual events.

The chapter’s programming remains strong, and the number of people attending the meetings has also remained strong. The top 4 reasons why people love attending our events are: 1. networking 2. learn what companies are doing 3. professional development 4. cutting edge research and insight. 

Do not miss out - join our events.
