Aloha ATD Hawai'i Members:


At the last ATD event of 2017, we asked all in attendance, “what do you want to get out of ATD?” Can you guess the #1 answer? It was to meet and network with like-minded people. We believe as you do, that there is value in creating connections with other professionals outside of our daily circle who can relate to similar challenges and exchange support. Personally, I’ve made lifelong friends through ATD that I have collaborated with time after time.


With this feedback in mind, the board systematically changed our annual strategic planning process. Part of that planning was to develop a whole year of programs specifically targeted to increase networking opportunities. Our first two programs will be highly interactive. We’ve also planned a Networking Pau Hana in April, and a field trip to the Honolulu Beerworks in June not only to understand their training program but also to enjoy time with each other. We’ll end the year strong with Charity& Cheer not only to celebrate and thank our ATD Hawai'i 'ohana, but also to give back to the community in which we live. In all, we have planned 12 diverse events for you in 2018. We have themed this, “Our Learning Voyage”, and designed it with a clear, progressive path of development covering 9 of the 10 Areas of Expertise (AOE) based on the ATD Competency Model.


Our Mission says it all: we want to foster a collaborative community, sharing knowledge and resources to achieve greater effectiveness in all of us. We want as you want, to see us become the influencers, bringing about positive change, not only at work, but also in life. Why? Because we want to develop ourselves and see the talent in Hawai'i elevated.


I urge you to be part of the ATD Hawai'i 'ohana, and experience how well your purpose and ATD’s align. On behalf of the ATD Hawai'i board, I invite you to come on this learning journey and experience something you can only get from being with us on our voyage!
