President's Message - 2023

I am honored to serve as the President of Northern New Jersey (NNJ) ATD chapter and on behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you for venturing to our chapter website.

At the NNJ ATD chapter, we are committed to providing an environment where the Talent and Learning & Development community can extend their professional expertise, acquire new skills, and network with like-minded professionals. 

Our chapter is comprised of individuals with a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences, and skills including instructional designers, trainers, talent development managers, teachers/educators, HR professionals, performance and training consultants, frontline managers, workplace learning professionals, business entrepreneurs, and a wide range of more.  It is through this diversity that we continue to foster a vibrant Talent and Learning & Development community.

Our chapter's focus for 2023 is to reconnect with the Talent and Learning Development community. Over the past few years, our chapter, like many organizations, have been impacted by COVID, which resulted in our chapter hosting a limited number of in-person events. 

During 2023, we anticipate our program slate to somewhat normalize, resulting in more opportunities to come together and connect as a community. Our hope is as the post-pandemic environment improves, we can socialize and connect more broadly and reinforce the value of a membership in the NNJ ATD chapter.

We will continue to offer a great slate of Regional Webinar Events in conjunction with our partner Mid-Atlantic Region ATD chapters. These regional webinars will be supplemented by quarterly in-person chapter networking events as well as quarterly chapter virtual events.

We invite you to become part of the conversation by joining our Northern NJ ATD LinkedIn group.  Additionally, please watch your email for updates about our chapter, our quarterly newsletters, and specific event registration details.  

I wish you all the best for a healthy and safe 2023 – one full of opportunities to connect and grow with our community of Talent and Learning & Development professionals.

Warmest regards, 

David Presley 

President, Northern New Jersey ATD
