December 2014 – The St. Louis Chapter was named an ATD Chapter of the Month (COM) for December 2014. The COM is national recognition for ATD local chapters that have demonstrated strength, growth, and innovation in managing their chapter.
Rhonda Bothwell, chair of ATD’s Chapter Recognition Committee, which awards the Chapter of the Month honor, said, ”This prestigious award recognizes the St. Louis Chapter for demonstrating innovative and unique approaches in providing great value to their members and professionals in the community, including professional development, networking, and leading information about trends in the talent development industry. The St. Louis Chapter is a leading example for serving members and other ATD chapter leaders with opportunities to learn and grow from each other. We are pleased to recognize the chapter with ATD’s Chapter of the Month award,” Bothwell said.
The St. Louis Chapter was recognized for their Member Emeritus program. The program created a membership category to honor long term members for their service and time with the chapter. To qualify, members must be in good standing and have maintained chapter membership for a period of 10 years. Along with this honor, each Member Emeritus receives a complimentary renewal to the chapter each year as long as the member maintains an active ATD membership.
