Each year, ATD chapter leaders from around the U.S. gather in Washington, D.C. to share ideas and learn best practices; it’s called ALC (ATD Chapter Leaders Conference). At ATD Sacramento, we are proud that we have a precedent of being a highly engaged chapter, who sends several board members annually to the conference. This year, five of your board members attended:

  • Allison Horak, President 2017
  • Sarah Crawford, Co-Director of Programs 2017 and incoming President 2018
  • Casey Field, Director of Membership, 2017, 2018
  • Rosalind Sago, Volunteer Coordinator 2017 and Director of Programs 2018
  • Kim Geil, Finance Associate 2017 and Director of Finance 2018

At ALC, there are keynote speakers and breakout sessions, each with a different topic/focus (and, there’s free food!). The five of us usually attended different sessions, trying to glean as much pertinent information as possible to make 2018 a successful year for our chapter. Sarah and I each submitted a proposal to speak at the conference—and each were chosen! It was truly a privilege to represent our chapter on the national level. Here’s what our two sessions were about:

  • Allison's session: Tech Tools for Improving Board Communication and Efficiency
  • Sarah's session: Make your Chapter Networking Programs Less Awkward, More Fun, and Informational

Both sessions were very well attended, and we both received a lot of positive feedback from other TD professionals.

If you think you’d like to be involved with volunteering for the chapter, we’re always looking for people to help with programs (helping at events with various tasks) and membership (making phone calls welcoming new members). Please email our chapter at  to express interest or find out more information.

We look forward to an exciting 2018 with you all.
