President's Message

Happy Fall! It's October 2020 and ATD Fort Worth / Mid- Cities has been laser-focused on accomplishing our mission. Championing professionals in talent development through outstanding programs and building relationships has been our purpose for every chapter meeting and town hall.

COVID19 has emphasized that change is continuous and is not a one-time event that can be planned for or something special to be managed. Since the lockdown began, our chapter demonstrated its agility and responded to the pandemic by immediately shifting our chapter session to the virtual space. As we gained expertise in online event production, our ATD Fort Worth/Mid-Cities leadership team has been planning for what reopening would look like. We were continuously monitoring the environment to look for the opportunity to meet in-person again while continuing to provide the virtual option for our members who preferred to participate from a distance. Our chapter again demonstrated its agility as we held our first Hybrid event for our October chapter meeting with our members participating in-person and virtually. The event was a success and we learned a lot that will help us continue to focus on improving our member’s experience. We see value in offering online and in-person options for each chapter session and will strive for this to become the norm as we move forward.

At ATD Fort Worth / Mid-Cities Chapter, we believe it is worth the investment to develop leaders at all levels. This week, nine of our chapter leaders will be attending the ATD Chapter Leaders Conference (ALC). At the conference, they will engage and learn with other chapter leaders and bring back ideas and insights that will bring additional value to the chapter as our new leadership team leads us into 2021.

We are thrilled about our membership and volunteers, the quality programs we have provided, and the many other successes we have experienced this year. We want to keep the momentum going and that is where you can help. In the December timeframe we will be launching our chapter member survey. When you see it, please let us know your perspective on how we are doing and what we can do in 2021 to meet your needs as a chapter member.

I am grateful for the privilege to lead the Fort Worth / Mid-Cities Chapter. We are committed to your safety and success. I hope to see you at our next town hall, SIG, and chapter session.

If you have any questions, please reach out to me or any of our board members.

Leadership Counts!
