Chapter Events

CVATD hosts a variety of professional development and networking opportunities throughout the year:

  • Chapter Meetings, facilitated by experienced talent development professionals, provide professional development and networking opportunities. These are held at least every other month from September through May, usually on the second Wednesday of the month.

  • Coffee, Chat, & Contacts (CCC) is an informal gathering with a facilitated discussion over breakfast. This is a great opportunity to learn something new, meet new people, or ask questions. It's also a safe, supportive place to practice your facilitation skills. There is no registration fee, however we ask that you register so we can plan how much space we need and how many handouts to bring.
  • BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) Workshops - BYOL Workshops provide hands-on opportunities to learn new skills or take your current skills to the next level.  Past topics have included Microsoft OneNote and PowerPoint, Articulate Storyline Basics and Storyline Tips and Tricks.

Facilitating a CVATD program is a great way to share your talent and expertise. Due to the limited number of speaking engagements available, CVATD gives preference to members of CVATD, ATD, or other ATD chapters.  If you would like to facilitate one of our programs, contact the VP of Programming on the contact page.

    Results Through Relationship Intelligence Session 

                                             

          Kyle Menig and Michael Brown

    Doesn’t it seem like some trainers, facilitators, managers and teams make “it” happen, no matter what “it” is? Even in uncertainty or times of crisis, they find a way to turn opposition into opportunity. They transform the stumbling blocks of conflict and misunderstanding into stepping stones for success and light bulb moments.

    For these high-achievers, building collaborative relationships is priority one. Whether in-person or dispersed, they understand that members of their teams and participants in their sessions can go further when aligned together. The good news is that you, too, can leverage the power of relationships and drive results.

    Objectives:

    • How everyone has a unique collaboration language, and you can learn to speak it
    • How to nurture relationships by increasing your skills in Relationship Intelligence
    • How to improve the content of conversations to reduce conflict and drive results
    • Check out the CoreStrengths Workshop Flyer.

    Learn more about Kyle Menig and Michael Brown in their bios.

    CCC - Activities for Virtual Learning with Kassy LaBorie

    Whatever name we have given it, online training, virtual instructor-led training, or synchronous training to list just a few, it’s still us conducting live training with real people using computers, headsets, microphones, internet, and an online meeting platform like Zoom, WebEx, or Adobe Connect. And it’s not as easy as we would all like it to be even during the best of times. With tasks such as sorting out logins and passwords, getting the materials and slides ready for online viewing, and helping participants get connected, it’s no wonder we struggle to make live online training effective and engaging.  We’ll focus on key areas and the specific tasks and strategies to help make you, your team, and your organization successful with online training.

    KASSY LABORIE is the principal consultant at Kassy LaBorie Consulting, LLC. She is a speaker, instructional designer, classroom facilitator, and author who specializes in virtual learning, teams, and live online technology. Kassy is passionate about helping organizations, learning teams, and training professionals successfully move to the virtual environment.

    In her previous role at Dale Carnegie Training, she was the director of virtual training services, a consultancy that partners with organizations to help them develop successful online training strategies. Kassy also served as the product design architect responsible for developing the company’s live online training product and experience. Prior to this, she was an independent master virtual trainer, a Microsoft software trainer, and a senior trainer at WebEx, where she helped build and deliver training at the WebEx University.

    Kassy is the co-author of Interact and Engage! 50+ Activities for Virtual Training, Meetings, and Webinars and author of Producing Virtual Training, Meetings, and Webinars, both with ATD Press. A frequent speaker at industry conferences since 2006, she has presented at Training Magazine events including their yearly conference and Online Learning Conferences, Chief Learning Officer symposiums, The Virtual Learning Show, ATD’s TechKnowledge and International Conference & Exposition, as well as many local ATD Chapter events.

    CCC - Measuring Training's ROI

    Training’s return on investment is often top of mind for business leaders. That’s why developing the skills needed to create and deliver effective return on investment (ROI) evaluations should be at the top of your to-do list. Important areas where measuring ROI is key include learning and performance, organization development, human resources, technology, change, and quality solutions.

    Our speaker, Janet Kendall White, earned her Measuring ROI certificate through ATD and will share her takeaways for applying ROI techniques to measure the impact of learning and performance solutions in order to gain senior leadership buy-in.
