Cascadia Chapter is Chapter of the Month for June 2018!

The Cascadia Chapter has been selected as the June 2018 Chapter of the Month (CoM) by National ATD!

The CoM is national recognition for ATD local chapters that have demonstrated strength, growth, and innovation in managing their chapter.

Lisa Goodpaster, chair of ATD’s Chapter Recognition Committee, which awards the Chapter of the Month, said, ‘‘This prestigious award recognizes Cascadia Chapter for demonstrating positive and unique approaches that provide value to their members and professionals in the community, including professional development, networking, and leading information within the talent development industry. Cascadia is a leader in providing opportunities to their members and other ATD chapter leaders to share best practices and encouraging leaders to learn and grow from each other. We are honored to recognize the chapter with ATD’s Chapter of the Month award.”

We received this award for two reasons. The first is that we achieved CARE (Chapter Affiliate Requirements) as required by National ATD, including joint membership. We also had submitted a Sharing Our Success (SOS) best practice for our “Partnership with UMU”. The Chapter Recognition Committee was impressed with this submission and considers it a best practice (microlearning and mobile, just-in-time polling) for our field.
