New Member Spotlight
Learn more about NEW MEMBER, Karissa Thacker of her own consulting firm - SPS, Inc.
The first annual ATD Philadelphia regional conference in 2012 came at exactly the right time for me. I was beginning to transition from a career as a face-to-face adult learning director at a local college into workplace education. A bigger shift than I anticipated. I found out about the conference two days before it was to be held, and signed up. That day I met wonderful people from varied corners of the field, and attended captivating sessions. I left convinced that I was moving in the right direction. I kept coming back for more. I immediately was inspired to become active on the conference program committee. My participation affords me the opportunity to interact with thought leaders in the Training & Development field; this is a much richer experience than just being in the audience.
It’s not easy to change careers in midlife. My friends through ATD-PHL have been trusted resources pointing me to new and interesting positions, and have helped me get noticed. In fact, I landed in my current position because an ATD presenter/mentor knew someone who I wanted to know.
I almost always feel the SIG gatherings and chapter events are worthwhile. Sometimes I attend simply because I enjoy the networking, camaraderie, and friendship!
I highly recommend membership. No regrets! Please join me.
