Join the 2017 ATD Nebraksa Board of Directors

We are Looking For Leaders!

ATD Nebraska is accepting applications for the 2017 Board of Directors.  A nominating committee will review applications and interview candidates and present a slate of Officers to the membership for a vote.  The results will be revealed to candidates in late fall and announced to the membership at a Professional Development and Networking Event. 

The benefit to the Chapter is inherent in your service on the board but don’t forget your personal benefit.  Board members tend to build, not only a strong network of colleagues, but a circle of lasting friendships. Opportunities to showcase your talents are nearly unlimited on the board, whether your gifts are technical, theoretical, organizational or creative.  We have a way for you to shine.  The professional development opportunities you have as a member are rich and varied but as a board member your opportunities and resources grow exponentially.  Don’t forget the power of a “board member” title on your resume. 

We are currently accepting applications for the following positions:
Director of Programming
Director of Website
Director of Social Learning
Director of Career Resources

Submit your application by October 21  http://www.atdnebraska.org/BoardApplication

If you have questions, you may contact: President Elect, Krishna Clay at presidentelect@atdnebraska.org. Please seriously consider the contribution you can make to our Chapter and to your own professional development.
