    If you're someone who wants to get into writing, explore what's involved in the marketing and communications aspects of talent development, or simply looking for unique opportunities to network with seasoned practitioners in the talent development field, we're eager to chat with you.

    ATD-OC is looking to add to our community's pool of knowledge through the creation of original content. The content would address topics of interest to the talent development community, and would explore the myriad of development opportunities our chapter offers its members.

    You could submit original content based upon your experiences in training, instructional design, or eLearning, or you could select from one of our Community Content Calendar topics. And while we'd be thrilled to list you as a "Chapter Writer," we'll be equally elated if you elect to take on a single article. Either way, you'll find a way to get your unique voice out to a community of talent development professionals.

    To get started, simply complete our Call for Writers interest form, or contact our Social Media Coordinator at SMOC@astdoc.org.

    Reporting to the VP of Programs, the MLE Coordinator assists the VP Programs and Chapter Admin with logistics and set up for an MLE; arrives early and stays late for his/her assigned Monthly Learning Event; helps with set up of meeting room, including audio visual; distributes handouts and other materials; welcomes speakers; and does whatever else is needed to ensure that the MLE runs smoothly. Must be a punctual and organized self-starter, able to work independently with little supervision, and enjoy helping others. Also, be comfortable working with computers, AV equipment, and Powerpoint and other applications. Added perk: the MLE Coordinator's registration is covered by the Chapter!

    This team is focused on ensuring that ATD-OC volunteers get back as much as they give. Do you have ideas on how we can say "thank you"? How should the Chapter tailor its volunteers' roles to align more closely with their career goals? If you have ideas about engagement, support, and appreciation for those who are the life blood of ATD-OC, then you belong on this team!

     - Should we throw a big "Thank You" party? Several smaller events?
     - Should we revise our Year End Special Awards?
     - How can we help further volunteers' career goals?
     - What are the best ways to say "Thank You!" and "You Rock!"

    We will also explore increasing skill development, mentoring, coaching, and leadership opportunities; plus visibility and networking.
