All around the Association for Talent Development's headquarters, there's palpable excitement and anticipation as our International Conference & Exposition fast approaches. The keynote speakers! ATD's 75th anniversary commemoration! The countdown has whittled down to a matter of days, yet not too long ago ATD 2018 appeared so far away. Will you join us in San Diego?
Many TD authors attend and even present at the conference—in fact, seven of this issue's authors are on the schedule for ATD 2018, including feature article authors Wendy Kirkpatrick, Laurie Burruss, Cheryl Lasse, and Jennifer Hofmann. So, if their article topics resonate with your work, company, or goals, consider attending one or more of the authors' sessions.
At the same time, if there's a session you attend that you think would make a good magazine article, I'd like to hear your recommendations. Most of the TD magazine staff will be on-site at the conference gathering intel, so to speak, on the latest industry trends and hot topics. After all, whom better to learn from about talent development professionals' challenges, successes, questions, and interests than those on the front lines?
We are just as committed as you to learn about what's hot in the industry and the strategies talent development is using to achieve success. Read on to get the latest.
