Our chapter is run by volunteers. They are the life blood of our existence, and the ATD OC Board works tirelessly to ensure volunteers receive much in return.
On November 2, 2016, the Wall Street Journal posted the growing trend of business schools to move away from internal case studies and focus more on experiential learning opportunities in the ‘real’ world.http://www.wsj.com/articles/business-schools-tackle-messy-real-time-corporate-issues-1478102923
From now, THINK of your ATD-OC Chapter as your Experiential Learning One-Stop Shop.
As our 2016-2017 President, Jeffrey Hansler says:
"We are giving you the keys to the car. We are dedicated to having you get behind the wheel and drive. We are obsessive about creating opportunities for you to innovate, experiment, to fail and get up again, and lead others by example.
We constantly create opportunities for you to close the knowing/doing gap. To take ideas from your head and bring them to life. To give you the experience of applying your innovative ideas and leading innovation on a team and contributing to others as you massively learn from your experiences which is something you cannot get from the knowledge base of Google.
Engage with us, learn the specifics of your own knowing/doing gap. Share the news and come and play with the car, hit the gas, do some spins, and burn rubber."
Our ATD-OC Strategic Objective for 2017 is:
Increase member engagement through 200 active volunteers annually – that’s two-thirds of our chapter membership:
- 90% self-assessment of positive experience
- 75% serve 10 or more hours per year
- 50% come back to volunteer again
Our ATD-OC Vision Statement is:
Be the space in which to practice and perfect your talent development skills and build your professional network in Orange County.
Our ATD-OC Mission Statement is:
Empower local professionals to effectively develop talent in the workplace.
Jeffrey Hansler states: "It is not the WHAT we accomplish, it is the HOW we accomplish it. And the above becomes the operational guide and measurement for staying on track.
At ATD-OC, our chapter volunteers are guaranteed an awesome Talent Development Experience and the best coaching and mentoring in the world. I speak from experience here. So, take a leap with your career and volunteer.”
