Have I mentioned lately … It’s summertime! Life runs at a different pace these summer months … but your career development doesn’t have to slow down! Summer is full of great opportunities for career growth here at the Greater Atlanta ATD Chapter.
ACE–August 21. The Atlanta Conference and Exposition (ACE) is almost here! Speakers are warming up, registration is open, and volunteer roles have been defined. I hope all of you are planning to take part. Here are some great ways for you to get involved now.
Are you in transition? I mentioned in my last column that we had some resources coming soon. Take a look at the July 12 event Does Your Resume Represent YOU? This kicks off our Job Readiness Workshop series and it promises to offer you insights to improve your resume and make it represent you as it should. And keep an eye on the calendar for the next event in this series in September.
So let me interject a question here: Do you need to justify whether ATD involvement is worth the effort? Could I suggest to you that the primary value the chapter offers you is networking! Consider for a minute the opportunities you have at ATD:
That last one is huge! Do you realize some of the friendships within the Greater Atlanta chapter are over 20 years old? ATD is a place you can come build stable ongoing relationships with the best professional crowd in town.
So back to ACE and volunteering—For any of the events and opportunities I’ve listed, if you can’t find what you need online, reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to talk and to help you connect with the chapter. Together, we’ll make the Greater Atlanta Chapter … greater!
