Greetings ATD FWMC Members and Guests!

It's a great month at ATD Fort Worth Mid-Cities as we have recently been named the ATD Chapter of the Month for July 2022. This achievement was made possible by the dedication and hard work of our board, volunteers, and members. Special recognition to Susan Wines for highlighting our work in an SOS submission. We sure won't stop here!

As we continue to build our community through networking, we invite you to learn and grow with us. Our outstanding programs like the Summer Mentoring Program let you do just that. The plane has finally been built and is flying high with Sandy E. Robinson, MA, SPHR in the pilot seat. Our mentor program kicks off today and will last for 6-weeks. We look forward to going on this journey with you.

Preparations for our ATD Cultivate Conference 2022 are now in full swing. Conference volunteers meet every Wednesday between 6 pm and 7 pm CT. This opportunity is open to all our members. Also, we have opened the RFP for Speakers. Do you love sharing knowledge, best practices, and ideas with others? You can become the next speaker at ATD Cultivate Conference 2022! Even if you don't, there may be someone you'd like to hear speak at our conference. Feel free to tag them or share this link with them: https://lnkd.in/gDcstv9m. Follow our journey by searching the tag #ATDCULTIVATE2022

It's exciting to share that the speaker for our July 7, 2022 meeting is our own former ATD FWMC Chapter member, and 2021 VP of Communications, Kristina Rogers, MCM! We will meet in person at the Hurst Conference Center between 5:30 pm and 7:30 pm CT. See you there! Kristina will share a special presentation titled: The Journey to an L&D Career. There is still time to register to join us virtually.

Five new friends joined our chapter in June. Welcome to your Chapter! Abby McLester, M.Ed, Georgina A Boamponsem, PhD, Margarita H., Meshayla Kemp, M.Ed., MBA, and Zohra Samji, we are so glad you joined! We also thank Lori Boyd, MBA, David Ferner, and Danielle Reichel for renewing their memberships and continuing to support us.

New this month, Blanche Allen, MS has joined our board as a volunteer. Welcome, Blanche! Are you considering serving on the board? There are currently three open Board positions – VP of Marketing & Communications, VP of Hospitality, and VP of Virtual Engagements. Please contact our President-Elect, Lara Azcona for more info.

We have decided to cancel plans for a Scavenger Hunt activity at the Stockyards this summer based on the responses we received from the just concluded members survey. We are planning an indoor activity for August instead. We will communicate the details soon.

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.

Stay safe!

Samuel Apata
2022 Chapter President

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!
