Hello fellow Talent and Development professionals and Happy New Year!

We wrapped up the year with a webinar on the new capability model led by an expert from the national ATD office. The new capability model provides talent development practitioners a blueprint for what they need to KNOW and DO to develop themselves, others, and their organizations.

It is a very robust talent development tool; I highly recommend taking the time to check it out for yourself: https://tdcapability.org/#/. You do not have to be a national member to access and use the model.

If you missed this webinar, members can access the recording and slides through the member-only section of the chapter website.

Check the chapter website for details on these events and all of the other programs we put on through the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and the Dayton Geographical Interest Group (GIG).

One of the priorities of the Professional Development committee has been to leverage the assets of other ATD chapters, especially those in closer proximity to us. GCATD members may register for other Ohio chapter events at their member price. Check out our Ohio colleagues and their program offerings:

In addition to reciprocal access to other Ohio ATD chapters, we have recently agreed with the ATD Kentucky chapter to reciprocate with their programming. Check out their website and if there is any event of interest to you, you may register for free as a ‘Sister Chapter’ member.

The same is true of the ATD West Michigan chapter; they provide a limited amount of free ‘Other chapter member’ slots for their events as well. I have enjoyed two of their events, which include access to the slides and recordings, just as if you were a chapter member.

Thanks to all who answered the member survey. It will assist the Professional Development Committee with our 2021 planning.

Our extended planning session is scheduled for January 12 over Zoom. If you would like to provide any input on our 2021 programming, please reach out to me (my contact info is below).

We on the Professional Development Committee aim to be responsive to the interests of the chapter membership. If you have any comments about the Professional Development Committee or would like to volunteer, please reach out to me: profdev@gcatd.org

Best wishes,


John Carter
