Greetings ATD FWMC Members and Guests,

It is that time of the year again when our chapter experiences new and exciting changes! Not in a spooky way, but in a transformational way.

Our Board of Directors is changing into a remarkable force as we move into the new year. We have a new Board of Directors for 2023! We still have some open positions including VP of Memberships. Please contact Lara Azcona to learn more.

We are also excited to be attending the ATD Chapter Leaders Conference (ALC), which is starting tomorrow! Eight board members will be present at this year's event. The annual ATD ALC brings chapter leaders together from across the country. Current and incoming board members will network and share best practices for running an ATD chapter. If you are an attendee, do not forget to log into the virtual platform before the conference officially kicks off this evening with first-time attendees’ orientation and networking reception activities. 

Our chapter has some exciting upcoming events. Our regular Learning Technologies SIG workshop is scheduled for later this month. Registration will be available soon on the Chapter website. We will celebrate the holidays at our Christmas party scheduled for December. Feel free to come and join us! We offer a great place to learn and network with other learning professionals. You can check out our events page at: https://atdfortworth.org/Events.

We also want to extend a welcome to our four new chapter members: Kathy Blanton, Karen Clem, Lutergia Pagan, and Janet Sanchez. Our new members joined the chapter in October.

Are you new to the Dallas-Fort Worth area or looking for a local ATD Chapter to join? ATD Fort Worth/Mid-Cities Chapter has one of two options available for you. We offer Chapter membership and the Student/Job Seeker membership options. For additional information on chapter membership rates, please visit https://atdfortworth.org/Membership.

On behalf of our dedicated board, thank you for your continued support and willingness to adapt with us! Please reach out anytime with questions or ideas to make our Chapter even greater.

Welcome to November!

Samuel Apata

(President, ATD Fort Worth Mid-Cities)

Why did we win?

First, your chapter achieved CARE for 2022! Second, your chapter had submitted two Sharing Our Success (SOS) best practices: “Hybrid Virtual/In-Person Chapter” and “Risk Assessment.” The Chapter Recognition Committee was impressed with these submission because chapters are really looking for ways to plan safe hybrid programming and this submission is a great example of how to do so. This submission is definitely a best practice. Nice work!

Congratulations again on your accomplishment!
