Digital encounters on Zoom

Submission window: Rolling

Event Duration: 1-2 hours

  • Our Digital Encounters on Zoom are the primary offering for our members. Each month we host 1-2 online events designed to address the ATD Capability model in a way that drives the Talent Development profession forward.
  • Sessions are held in Zoom during the week, mid-morning to early afternoon, Eastern Standard Time US. The Zoom platform is managed by the chapter with you having control over your screen sharing and audio. The event producer will field questions for you if you don't want to manage this aspect of the webinar. The first 15 minutes of the session are dedicated to chapter happenings. Then the producer will turn it over to you. The final 10 minutes are left for member questions and event reminders.
