Hello ATD Members,
This has been another unique and interesting year for all of us. And Saint Louis is no exception to that. With COVID-19 and the Delta variant cases on the rise, the board has decided to cancel all in-person events through the end of the year. Our chapter will still schedule virtual sessions since they have been received very well. Our attendance is growing, and we are having discussions on what our programming will look like, moving forward.
It was a difficult decision, but due to no in person events, we’ve decided to cancel the Learn Conference. Our newest board member, Jessica Mader made this announcement at one of our most recent events. If you did not attend that event, we wanted to share this information to ensure everyone is aware. We know that our membership, speakers, guests, and volunteers enjoy attending this great development opportunity, so we look forward to hosting it in 2022. We will continue to monitor the situation and put your safety first.
The board will continue to meet for the rest of the year and stay connected with you on our discussions for the rest of 2021 and beyond. With Jessica’s (VP of Professional Development) leadership and guidance, we will start to look at 2022 to provide you with a multitude of options for your professional development, including the Learn Conference.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you very soon.
Julio C Govreau, MBA
President, ATD St. Louis Chapter
