National volunteer leadership positions provide opportunity to give back to the profession


Tue Jul 07 2009


ASTD chapters are run by more than 1,000 local leaders across the country, and there are nearly 100 national leaders who contribute as well-from the ASTD Board of Directors to advisory committees to award review panels. A 2008 ASTD chapter services survey indicated that the number 1 reason cited for being a chapter leader was the desire to give back to the profession.

Two chapter-related national advisory committees assist the ASTD chapter services team: the Chapter Recognition Committee (CRC) and the ASTD Chapter Leaders Conference Program Advisory Committee (ALC PAC).


The CRC is charged with identifying, recognizing, and sharing chapter best practices. The ALC PAC is responsible for reviewing session proposals for the ASTD Chapter Leaders Conference, recommending ones for selection, identifying programming gaps, and recommending topics and speakers to fill those gaps.

Chapter leaders interested in these national volunteer leadership opportunities can learn more on the CRC and ALC PAC webpages. Applications for both committees are available on their webpages and are due July 31.

So if you're a chapter leader looking for an opportunity to give back to the profession and would like to get involved at the national level, consider the CRC or ALC PAC!
