    by Trish Hamill, VP Marketing, Internal Communications

    This month, I'm interviewing one of our newest members, Alicia Light, about her experiences to date in RTA ATD.

    Alicia Light

    Alicia, I first met you at our January Open House, and I believe you joined the chapter a short time after that. I recall your energy and enthusiasm, which is one of the reasons I wanted to interview you.

    First off, please tell us a little bit about yourself and your background.

    I relocated to North Carolina from Florida with my husband and pup. I have been working as the Instructional Design Technologist at the Center for Family and Community Engagement housed within NC State University since 2017. Prior to that, I was an Instructional Designer at TBC Corporation in 2016. I had started working on my Masters of Education in Instructional Technology from Florida Atlantic University at TBC and completed last year. I have a Bachelor’s of Arts in Organizational and Interpersonal Communication from the University of Central Florida.

    Right out of college, I started working with families and people in need while serving in AmeriCorps. In AmeriCorps, I found my love for training. I facilitated and developed an educational training program that dispelled homeless stereotypes across Palm Beach County to adults and youth.

    My passion lies in all things education and I thoroughly enjoy creating and leveraging engaging content and activities in order to facilitate higher learning in people. I have worked with various software programs and technology in order to create on-demand trainings, live trainings, and blended trainings. I love using out of the box thinking and problem solving skills in order to promote trainings that excite and engage adult learners.

    What drew you to RTA ATD and why did you decide to join?

    I decided to join because I had been apart of ATD at the national level in Florida and really enjoyed it. I wanted to get connected to Instructional Designers at a local level here. I missed having a solid group of people to connect with about nerdy e-learning things.

    Describe your most memorable moment in the Chapter.

    The most memorable moment for me was the feeling of belonging with a group after a short amount of time and the group's excitement about training during the January open house. I knew from that first open house I had found a really great group of people that would embrace my excitement for training and match it. I hadn't even bought a membership yet, but signed up for a committee.

    What are you looking forward to over the course of your first year?

    I look forward to getting connected to others and continuing to grow within the Instructional Design world. I think professional development is so important in an ever changing field.

    What is one thing you want to learn or do as a member?

    The one thing I want to do is continue growing within e-learning development. I love developing in Articulate 360 and want to take my designs and courses to the next level, what ever that may look like.

    What would you tell someone who is considering joining the chapter?

    If someone is considering joining the chapter, I would say DO IT! Without a doubt, do it.

    I totally agree with that, Alicia.

    Thank you for taking the time for this interview and sharing your thoughts about talent development and the chapter with the rest of us.

    Look out for Alicia at our SIGs and monthly meetings and say hello!

    The success of any non-profit organization is dependent upon the engagement of its members. If you have received any benefit from your membership with ATD RTA, please consider how you can give back to the chapter and ensure its continued success.

    The ATD RTA Chapter is adding positions to the chapter board for 2019. The elected positions are:

    • President
    • President-Elect
    • VP Finance
    • VP Membership – Recruitment
    • VP Membership – Retention
    • VP Marketing – Web/Social Media
    • VP Marketing – Internal Communications
    • VP Programming – Event Coordination
    • VP Programming – Logistics
    • Academic / Community Outreach
    • Member-at-large

    Q: Why is ATD RTA changing the makeup of the chapter board?

    A: The responsibilities of several of the positions have been too much to place on one person. So, the Membership, Marketing, and Programming roles have turned into co-positions, focusing on a specific aspect of the role. Not only does this distribute the responsibilities, but it provides more opportunities for our members to serve in leadership roles.

    Q: What are the responsibilities for the positions?

    A: Each role has their own set of responsibilities which will be posted on the ATD RTA website. More broadly, members in elected positions commit to:

    • Serve on the chapter board for one calendar year (except for President and President-Elect)
    • Attend monthly chapter board meetings
    • Meet with their respective committees as needed

    Q: Who gets selected for the elected positions?

    A: The Nominating Committee prepares the ballot for ATD RTA elected positions. They accept nominees from the chapter membership. Members of the Nominating Committee will also reach out to members to gather interest.

    Q: Who is eligible to run for an elected position?

    A: To be eligible, people must be a current member of ATD RTA chapter and a member of ATD National – or agree to add national membership by the start of the term.

    Q: Can I nominate myself for an elected position?

    A: Yes! If you have an interest in one or more elected positions, please email admin@tdrta.org.

    Q: I want to volunteer but I have limited time. Can I still be involved?

    A: Absolutely! There are many opportunities to support the chapter without running for an elected position. Many of the positions work with a committee to help manage the individual tasks of keeping the chapter running smoothly.

    Remember, the chapter is dependent on dedicated members like you to keep it running.

    Did you know that 25% of all employee turnover occurs within the first 45 days on the job?

    Amber Harrer, Manager of Learning and Development at Relias Learning shared with us the benefits of a strong on boarding program. The combination of a strong corporate culture and a comprehensive on boarding approach has contributed significantly in helping to reduce turnover at Relias from 41% to 16%.

    William Sparks & Associates, a Charlotte based organizational development firm, would like to invite the members of the regional ATD chapters to a special event: The Actualized Performance Cycle Certification Program.

    Over the last 10 years, we have been developing a suite of tools for talent development professional who are seeking to make meaningful change in their organizations. The result of our work is the Actualized Leader Profile, the Group Culture Profile, and the ALP 360. Together, these tools provide rich information on individual leadership styles and derailers, the impact of individual style on group and team culture, and 360 feedback from influencers on leader and team performance.

    We are hosting our third Actualized Performance Cycle certification program from February 21-24, 2018 at Queens University of Charlotte. I have attached a program flier that explains more about the training. Please feel free to circulate it to your members through any means you feel are appropriate.

    If you have any questions, please call me at 504-756-7003, or visit www.drwillsparks.com
