Dear ATD Detroit Members,
Over the last week, concern for the COVID-19 Coronavirus has escalated here in Metro Detroit. We understand that many employers are implementing restrictive policies, and government and health officials have recommended that everyone practice social distancing.
In respect for public health and the safety of our members, ATD Detroit is canceling all face-to-face activities events through the end of May. Our next scheduled in-person event is our annual Top Trainer Throwdown on June 9th, although we will continue to monitor the local situation and make appropriate decisions.
In the meantime, your learning and growth as talent development professionals is not going to stop during this time of uncertainty. Your ATD Detroit Board Members are hard at work planning a variety of virtual learning opportunities for the upcoming months. We will be featuring webinars with topics on distance learning tactics, comparisons of teleconference tools, strategies for training during crisis, and more relevant issues. Look for our promotional emails in the upcoming weeks to find out more.
There are also several great web-based member benefits available to you now:
Thank you for your understanding as we shift our programming approach. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas for activities we can provide during this “online only” effort.
On behalf of the ATD Detroit Board of Directors, thank you for your continued participation in our chapter. Please take care of yourself, your family, and each other.
