Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
In addition to our monthly chapter meetings and other learning and networking events, ASTD Middle Tennessee offers a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to our members. For more information, read below and contact the associated board member. If you're interested in creating a SIG inside of ASTD Middle Tennessee, contact our president, Donna Yurdin.
Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) SIG
The CPLP SIG meets periodically to share resources and study for the CPLP exam. To participate in the CPLP SIG, please contact Erin Evans.
Organizational Development (OD) SIG
The OD-SIG serves as a community of practice.
This SIG provides networking, education, and service opportunities for Middle Tennessee OD professionals under the umbrella of Middle Tennessee ASTD. Each meeting consists of a leading-edge best practice, shared issues and group discussion of solutions. Meetings are held at InfoWorks, Inc. (102 Woodmont, Suite 500 Nashville, TN 37205) from 5:30pm-7:00pm the second Monday of every other month.
To participate in the OD SIG, please contact Jane Smith-Stage at email@example.com.
Rather than developing our own smaller SIG focused on transitions, ASTD Middle Tennessee recommends that members visit the Middle Tennessee Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Career Transition Team meeting. For more information on this group, visit the MTSHRM website by clicking here.
Save the date! We will hold an organizational meeting on Monday, 4/8/13, to organize the launch of our new e-learning SIG, which will be created in response to member feedback. If you are interested in participating in an e-learning SIG, please consider attending this important meeting, as it will be participant-driven. More information will be posted in the coming weeks.
