A Message from the President

As someone who is passionate about promoting learning and developing the performance capacity of individuals and organizations, we welcome you to N.E.W. ATD.  Our mission is, "Empowering learning professionals to unleash talent that drives performance."  Whether it's the relevant and targeted programs, networking opportunities, fun and friendly people, or the combination of all these and more that keeps you coming back, it's our pleasure to count you as a member.

During 2021, our organization will strive to bring you valuable strategically-focused learning programs presented by both local and national talent. Our programs offer new and diverse topic choices that provide meaningful benefits to both our members and their organizations. We will also expand our monthly programs to include Regional Professional Network meetings, where members will take a 'deeper dive' into important topics for developing today's workforce.

We welcome new members to the chapter! Membership is open to all who are interested in or have responsibilities aligned with talent development, performance improvement, and/or human resource development.  

Our 2021 goals ensure continued value for you, our member. We are committed to building our presence on Facebook, LinkedIn and our Website to provide ways to easily network and collaborate. Through our Regional Professional Networks, members are invited to participate in facilitated group discussions to explore and engage with new trends and hot topics in our field.  We will also drive our initiative to develop volunteer positions that provide opportunities for members to assist our chapter and learn more about how we operate.  We look forward to partnering with you!

N.E.W. ATD presents a forum to network with professionals engaged in learning and development roles who face similar successes and challenges and helps to create lasting partnerships with others in similar fields. We will support you with opportunities to develop both personally and professionally.

Based on our chapter’s mission and vision, the board members of the N.E.W. ATD Chapter are committed to operating an efficient and progressive chapter organization focused on member needs. We appreciate members' comments or feedback. I encourage you to send me a note to share your ideas, insights, questions, or concerns.

It truly is my pleasure to serve you as the 2021 N.E.W. ATD Board President.

Michelle Johnson
2021 Chapter President
