Even before their tenure began, the ATD-Orange County Board plunged into several initiatives meant to empower our members through vibrant and engaging programs. Now midway through the year, we thought: let's check in with the Board and learn more about some of what drives these individuals in their pursuit of Chapter Excellence.
Our second interview is with Gillian Wilson (pictured, right), ATD-OC President Elect.
What passion drove you to serve as an ATD-OC leader?
Helping other people be more successful - by making connections, giving feedback, mentoring, providing advice or resources. If only it were that easy and I had all the time in the world to dedicate to this!
How does Chapter Service fit in with your own personal or professional goals?
Chapter Service challenges you to push yourself to do more and get out of your comfort zone.
What does our motto: "Connect | Invest | Grow" mean to you?
It means we link our members together with each other, the board and the local community by each of us investing our time and energy and resources. The end result is to grow the chapter and also each other.
At the end of the year, what would you like to have accomplished for your TD community?
If I can help at least one person be more successful either in the chapter or at work or in another way that is important to them.
What else would you like readers to know about your function or the Chapter?
We are a thriving community that engages, inspires and connects our members driving them to succeed by providing talent development programs, events and networking opportunities.
