An honor to be nominated: ATD-OC receives the Spirit of Volunteerism

It’s with distinct pleasure that we share that ATD-Orange County has been nominated for a Spirit of Volunteerism award!

For nearly 30 years, OneOC has offered this award “to honor the service of the individuals, teams, and businesses that make our community a stronger and more vibrant place to live, work and play.” In this case, they’re honoring the efforts of our Training and Technology Special Interest Group.


"Cause Area: Community & Capacity Building

The Special Interest Group of the Association for Talent Development Orange County Chapter has been working diligently for over a year on a virtual learning project that will serve our nonprofits looking to post volunteer opportunities on our Volunteer calendar. 

It will serve as an on-demand learning tool for all nonprofits that are seeking to recruit volunteers – giving them the ability to learn, and re-learn if necessary, how to post to our website. It will also alleviate staff time that was utilized twice a week to run the training as a live webinar. 

By making this training more self-paced and accessible at any time, nonprofit professionals don’t have to wait to post, and can return back to the learning module should they need a refresher; something that was not possible when the training had to be led by an instructor via the webinar format. 

We are grateful for this group of professionals coming together with the passion and desire to make this training professional and effective for the sake of our nonprofit clients. It has not been an easy process with systems changing, and working with minimal budgets; not to mention that all the professionals within the group have full-time jobs. 

OneOC wants to honor them for their time and commitment to the project."

The Training and Technology OneOC team consists of 8 ATD-OC members:
  • Jeannie Jurado
  • Kathleen Dvorak
  • Kimberly Goh
  • Lisa Osborn
  • Susmitha Manav
  • Tom Partridge
  • Wendy Sterndale
  • Paul Venderley

Throughout the past year, these professionals have dedicated their time and effort both to learning how to maximize Adobe Captivate and to applying this new knowledge in the OneOC project.

We’re proud to be a recipient of the Spirit of Volunteerism awards, and look forward to sharing our completed project with the Chapter.
