December 2021 Chapter of the Month

Metro DC

The Metro DC Chapter was looking for more ways to engage its members and the talent development community. A team started The Beltway Podcast. The team (also known as the “Podsquad”) represents chapter volunteers who also serve in board positions: the 2021 vice president of learning, vice president of finance, director of technology and operations, and director of virtual program. They created a formal process to ensure the podcast’s continuity and professionalism to promote it and future-proof it, which ensures it will remain relevant for future boards as well as connected to chapter initiatives. The podcast gives members and nonmembers alike, consistent access to talent development-related tips, recommendations, practical advice, and knowledge-sharing in a fun and creative way. The podcast has 30 episodes out with 1,009 downloads from 31 states and 26 countries.
