Career and Professional Development SIG

The Career and Professional Development Special Interest Group (SIG) provides talent development professionals the tools and knowledge to help them develop and manage their careers.

Through interactive presentations, workshops, and discussions our goal is to help Learning and Talent Development professionals and others in similar professions develop foundational competencies such as interpersonal skills, business skills, and industry knowledge.   

Our SIG sessions foster a community in which we can learn from each other, discuss ways to approach career challenges, and share opportunities for career growth.

See our page for details on our next Career and Professional Development SIG meeting, or contact the SIG Leader for more information.

Our meeting formats consist of panel presentations and roundtable discussions where our members and guests learn from key Learning and Talent Development leaders in local companies and from each other as we share ideas and experiences that will help us all to be successful in this field.

Learning and Development SIG

The Learning and Development SIG supports practitioners seeking to deepen their knowledge and share ideas on the latest practices in learning and development across all industries. We strive to provide interactive and hands-on learning experiences through workshops, engaging presentations with Q&A, and interactive round-table discussions led by experts in our industry. 

Meetings are held in person and, when possible, virtually (as scheduled). This provides a flexible forum where we can network and gain experience with various technologies, tools, processes, and methodologies as a community of practice. We welcome practitioners with all levels of expertise and believe that we learn best when we learn together.
