AXIOM News and Notes – October

Happy Fall! It’s October! We’ve been busy, but not so busy we can’t enjoy some colorful leaves, Halloween decorations and pumpkin spice everything. We hope you have had a chance to enjoy the fall as well. Here’s a glimpse into AXIOM’s world through our monthly News and Notes post. Let us know what you think!instagram

    • Preconference Workshop: Maximize Your Chapter’s Marketing and Communication Strategy – great ideas to get the word out and introduce the benefits of ATD and how to attract new members
    • Sunrise Session: ALC First Time Attendee Orientation – met a bunch of other Membership Directors and shared ideas and created a support network
    • Concurrent Session: Automate Your Chapter’s Social Media – Wow ! Learned a lot about strategy, how to do it effectively and realized it’s not as scary as my kids tell me it is. (they’re trying to keep me away!)
    • General Session: ATD President and CEO, Tony Bingham, and Recognition Presentation – learned what’s new for ATD in the years to come!ATD
    • General Session Keynote: Michael Bungay Stanier – Engaging and fun presentation on human interaction and how to ask the right questions to engage people in conversation. Very inspiring!
    •  Hands-On Workshop: Align Your Chapter and Board Using a Strategic Compass – how to use a model similar to Pros/Cons but on steroids. Useful for boards AND everyday decisions.
