Press Release

"ASTD Saved My Job"


Mon Apr 21 2008


Several years ago, an ASTD member came up to the ASTD booth at an industry conference. "I have to tell you," she said, "ASTD saved my job." The staff member working the booth was pleased to hear the comment and even more curious to hear her story.

"Well," she continued, "Just last month, I had been putting together a proposal for a program that we just knew would make a huge impact in our organization. I had promised my boss that I would have a recommended training program in the proposal -- but I hadn't been able to come up with a workable solution on my own. The day before the presention was due, my monthly issue of INFOLINE was in my mail."


Turns out that issue of INFOLINE was a step-by-step program for the solution she was developing.

The member turned and melted into the Expo crowd before the ASTD staff person could get her name.

We'd like to believe that ASTD members probably have a lot of these "Wow" moments -- and if you have had one, we'd love to tell you about it.
