New Member Welcome Postcard
Indianapolis, IN, September 19, 2016 – The Central Indiana Chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATD), formerly ASTD, was recognized for its submission to the ATD “Sharing Our Success” (SOS) program. The national SOS program identifies best practices among local ATD chapters and uses them as models for other chapters.
Jeffrey Gehris, Chair of ATD’s Chapter Recognition Committee said, "This recognition honors the Central Indiana Chapter’s best practice that demonstrates its commitment to managing a successful organization as well as advancing the talent development profession at the local level. We are excited to honor the chapter with ATD's SOS recognition."
In an effort to continue growth and engagement of the Central Indiana Chapter, a new member welcome postcard initiative was put into place in February 2016. When a professional renews their membership with the chapter (2016 only) or becomes a new member with the chapter, they receive a welcome postcard signed by each member of the Board of Directors. The postcard contains a welcome message thanking the new member for their investment in their own personal development, encourages them to check out all the benefits their membership offers them, and extends contact information of the chapter’s leadership to connect. Members have expressed their gratitude in receiving a signed card in the mail with a warm welcome and encouragement to connect with board members at upcoming programs. Additional programs have been added across the chapter to increase engaged membership and to date an overall increase of 14% has resulted in the combined efforts. The chapter is excited to continue its growth and engagement of new and current members.
