Happy New Year,
Do you have your 2014 resolutions written down and confirmed yet? How about your 2014 business goals? What new learning and development tool are you going to implement this year? Everyone's focus right now is usually on developing objectives and goals for the new year, but have you taken the time to review and celebrate your achievements for the past year?
Here are a few of ASTD-Lincoln's 2013 achievements:
* The Knowledge Management Council's began the never-ending push towards identifying the shortfalls in training and education in Lincoln and the surrounding area. We must give a big thank you to Past President Jeff Beck and Dr. Nancy Stelter for their continued leadership with the Council. Amazing things are happening with this group and everyone should watch www.astdlincoln.org/kmcfor a big announcement in 2014 from
the Knowledge Management Council.
* The President and CEO of ASTD National sent congratulations in May 2013 to the ASTD-Lincoln Chapter for achieving 100% CORE for the year by successfully meeting all 18 required CORE elements.
* ASTD-Lincoln was also recognized as a Chapter Membership STAR with joint membership (members who are both local chapter members and National ASTD members) between 40-50%. Thank you to all members for helping achieve these notable milestones!
* In 2013 we increased our number of Facebook fans to 99 and reached over 3,000 people with posts to our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/astdlincoln.
Each of these achievements should be celebrated, but we also want to thank each member of ASTD-Lincoln for making each of these accomplishments possible. Oh, one last thought...please don't forget to develop your goals for 2014.
