December Breakfast Banquet
"Do you know a learning professional who has demonstrated a significant contribution in the field of Learning and Organizational Development? (Maybe even you?)
Do you work for a local organization that has achieved a significant learning and/or training accomplishment?
The Kentuckiana Chapter of the Association of Talent Development encourages you to nominate an individual or organization for consideration in the Annual ATD Kentuckiana Awards!
On December 9, 2014 the ATD-Kentuckiana Chapter will honor one “Outstanding Learning Professional of the Year” and one “Kentuckiana’s Best Place to Learn” recipient.
The winners of the awards will be honored for specific activities or projects in the field of learning, training, and organizational development. Winners will receive a personalized, hand-blown glass trophy, a free year of membership to the Kentuckiana Chapter of the ATD, and will be profiled on the Kentuckiana Chapter website.
Self-nominations are accepted and encouraged, but you also are welcome to contact a colleague or organization and ask if you can nominate them for this prestigious award!

Our October Chapter meeting was held at the "Nucleus" at 300 E. Market. We met in a state of the art room with excellent amenities. Their mission is to "provide business management and consulting services to support entrepreneurs engaged in innovation and research. From concept evaluation through product development and investment strategies, Nucleus drives innovation."
This was an appropriate venue for our speaker, Michael Mahan, General Manager- Monogram GE Appliances. He gave an informative talk about how GE introduced a new product using the innovative “lean” process. He fielded many questions and was quite engaging.
Our non-profit of the month was Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Louisville. Jeri Swinton showed her passion and compassion for the youth of the community in her heart-felt talk.
