What is ATD Central Iowa's Professional Development Day?

Now Taking RFP Submissions for speakers!

We’d like to encourage you to volunteer to share your experiences during a session at the ATD Central Iowa Professional Development Day on February 7, 2020. This is a chance to support the development of others through informative sessions that provide networking and the sharing of ideas and best practices. 

Our theme is “2020: Envisioning Tomorrow’s Talent."  Think about how our talent development work helps envision tomorrow’s talent across our members’ industries, organizations, and learners.  Use this theme to create an engaging presentation that will help others use talent development to make a positive difference in the workplace. Special consideration will be given to program proposals that focus on talent development professionals’ learning, rather than topics for general application or sales pitches.

All Requests for Proposal submissions must be received by October 4, 2019.

We ask for your presentation to align with the ATD Areas of Expertise listed below:

1.  Integrated Talent Management, Managing Learning Programs, and Knowledge Management

Examples of topics:  Talent Needs Forecasting, Leading the TD Team, Strategic Planning for Talent Development

2.  Performance Improvement, Change Management, and Coaching

Examples of topics:  Performance Assessment and Analysis, Program Management, Transfer of Skills to Performance

3.  Training Delivery, Instructional Design, Learning Technologies, Evaluating Learning Impact

Examples of topics:  Instructional Methods, Applying Learning Research, Integrating Technology Platforms

* Visit the ATD Competency Model here for more information on the Areas of Expertise.

Our decision criteria include alignment to theme, alignment to the ATD AoE, quality of content, and presenter qualifications.
