September’s meeting will be a “micro-conference” of at least three Special Interest Group leaders sharing their passion and experiences with you.

You can attend this event 
in-person or virtually.
(Upon registration, you will be required to indicate acceptance of our
Photography Release that appears at the bottom of this page.)

(Virtual attendance is identified in the registration type.
All other registration types are in-person.)

Scheduled topics:

 What's In A Minute?

Have you ever attended—or maybe led—a presentation or training session where time got away from the facilitator?  Anyone who facilitates anything needs a good sense of what a minute feels like...and what two minutes, three minutes, five minutes and so forth feel like as well.  And we also need the ability to accomplish our goals no matter how—or how often—the time frames they’re working within shift.  Come work with us on this skill at the September SIG mini-conference.



Alternatives to the Creative Cloud

While the cost associated with Adobe's Creative Cloud is well worth it for graphic and marketing professionals, they are a bit expensive for those of us who use the products sparingly within our training content.  For those of you who want to modify the rare vector image or edit the occasional photo, fear not!  There are some tools that can support both our needs and our budget.  We'll share them here.


Structured Networking

We'll take a break in the middle of this micro-conference to network with senior practitioners, talent development community leaders, and that one person who asked a really interesting question that you want to know more about.
