Once upon a time a pretty young lady went to church, wearing a new hat. She was very pleased with the hat and, of course, with herself.
The first announcement of ASTD's 9th Annual Conference, to be held in Boston on May 6th, 7th and 8th, was mailed to all AST D members and dis-tributed through affiliated chapters to other training directors in January.

ALL OF US are concerned with increasing our value to our organizations. At times it is possible to measure a program ol performance and have evidence of tangible results
Role-playing as a training technique is not only spreading in use but also stimulating experimentation and re-search in a growing number of places, with the promise of important develop ments in the future. Role-playing, which had its initial impetus in sales training and promotion, encountered many adverse reactions in its application to supervisory training. As tlie technique becomes better under-stood, however, its application is being limited to situations for which it can be adequately prepared
THERE HAS BEEN an ever-growing body of literature on the use of role-playing for developing understanding and skill in human relations. Most of this literature, however, has concerned itself with an analysis of what role-play-ing is and what it purports to do.
The Second Western Regional Train-ing Conference has proved the ability of West Coast training directors to pro-duce a regional meeting of consequence. In a two day, jam packed program at the Ambassador in Los Angeles, over 200 training people met to hear speakers discuss Executive Development, Super-visor Training, and Economic Training.
Although role-playing has many mer-its it still suffers from the limitation that it is not basically a group involve-ment device. The ultimate aim of em-ploying role-playing in conferences and in training sessions is to make the parti-cipating members sensible and sensitive to the feeling, reactions, and behaviors of people in the roles thev are assum-ing.
ASTD changed its name to ATD to meet the growing needs of a dynamic, global profession.
