2020 ATD New England Area Conference
due to the spread of the coronavirus!

Greetings ATD New England Area Conference Attendees –

Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the ATD New England Area Conference is canceled for this year.  This was not an easy decision but given the current environment it is the responsible thing to do. 

Many hours of hard work have gone into planning this year’s conference.  I would like to thank all of our volunteers for their dedication and expertise.  Special thanks to our Committee Chairs – Leslie Bartholomew, Renee Herendeen, Taimur Kiddie, Tricia Richardson, Dawn Walker-Elders, Peter Ward and to Marie Cullen Oliver our Conference Admin.  Check out a complete list of our amazing volunteers here and be sure to say thank you the next time you see them!

Since you have already cleared the day and we all love to learn, on Friday, March 27, 2020 at 12 Noon and at 3 PM you will have an opportunity to hear from this year’s Keynote Speakers – Clark Quinn and Hugh Seaton.  Webinar details will be sent in a separate email message.

Your registration will automatically be applied to next year’s conference.  We already have dates secured at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood, MA for March 25th & March 26th, 2021.

Please note: if you have a hotel room booked you will need to call Four Points by Sheraton Norwood directly to cancel.  The hotel has been wonderful to work with during this unprecedented time.  I encourage you to stay with them the next time your travels bring you that way.

We would like to thank this year’s presenting sponsor D2L.  For over 20 years, D2L has been working with their partners to foster learning innovation.  D2L provides a learning platform called Brightspace, built for those who value employee development as a driver of business success.  Brightspace, incorporates peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, gamification, personalized training and more.  Additionally, we would like to thank our other 2020 sponsors and exhibitors.  Check out a complete list and be sure to thank them as well for the support of this talent development conference. 

We are looking forward to next year!  In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.

As we enter a new decade of Talent Development, we want to go in with our eyes wide open for a clear vision of the future.  This year our conference will focus on:

  • How will your organization approach talent development and when to invest in upgrades and modifications along with the infrastructure to support it? 
  • What resources will you have and constraints do you face? 
  • How do you assess an organization’s requirements capacity to evolve how it meets learning needs? 
  • How do you overcome preconceived notions of training and ensure that your talent development program delivers the desired learning outcomes? 
  • How do you create an organizational portfolio for talent development?

Thank you to our 2020 ATD NEAC Presenting Sponsor:
