Pay It Forward!
Someone helped you in your career and professional development; now you have a chance to help others.
GCATD is powered by a strong team of volunteers who drive the daily administration of our Chapter. With your volunteer efforts, we can work together to build a thriving organization that serves as the go-to resource for all things related to talent development! You can give back in a variety of ways – serving on the Board, partnering with a Committee or leveraging your talents for unique needs that are identified throughout the year. If interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is a list of existing committees who may be in search of volunteers, as well as insight into new and exciting roles:
New Volunteer Opportunities!
Consultant Directory Moderator
Are you interested in developing new and creative products to serve our membership? GCATD is looking for a volunteer to help develop a pathway (e.g., interactive member directory) that would allow for a two-way referral process that would allow members to connect with one another and to potential clients, and where clients can connect with ATD members with unique skills (e.g., consultants, speakers, coaches, etc.)
Looking for an informal way to give back to GCATD? Our GCATD Ambassadors support the efforts of our Membership Committee in a number of ways, such as: greeting new members at professional development events, assisting with membership call/email campaigns to welcome new members and connect with renewing members, and more.
Special Interest Group (SIG) Coordinator
GCATD hosts a number of informal learning groups known as SIGs (Special Interest Groups). Currently the list includes the Learning Leaders SIG, Coaching SIG, Consultants SIG and Organizational Development SIG. We are looking for a coordinator to work with the wonderful leaders of the SIGs to facilitate conversation on meeting best practices, while exploring how we can continue to build value for our members through these events.
Committee members partner with our VP of Membership to develop relevant strategies to support membership recruitment, retention, and engagement efforts. Efforts include leading our New Member Orientations, designing membership promotional materials and connecting with current/prospective members to discuss the value of membership.
Professional Development Committee
Committee members partner with our VP of Professional Development to design and coordinate a variety of learning events and professional development opportunities that meet the diverse needs of our chapter members. In addition to strategically planning topics and learning forums, this group will work to identify credible facilitators who create an engaging learning environment.
Committee members partner with our VP of Communications to develop strategies for creating and maintaining a professional image for GCATD, both internal and external of the Chapter. Plan and coordinate efforts related to communication such as the Chapter website, newsletter, announcements, etc. Efforts will include a variety of communication vehicles such as print, web and social media.
Fall Conference Committee
Each year, this group works to coordinate and market our most attended event throughout the year – our Annual Fall Conference. They work together to coordinate, market and execute this fun-filled day of professional development and networking. Duties include creating strategic outreaches to sponsors, vendors, speakers and attendees!
