One day I woke up and it was November already! If, like me, you're feeling like there is just too much, let me help!

1. 2 days left to save big- ATD National is having a mega sale for its members on professional certifications and courses. You could save upwards of $500 on certification to help your career. Click here to learn more. If you do register for anything, or order any books or reports along the way, be sure to use our chapter CHiP code (3008) to help our chapter as you build your own knowledge and skills.

2. Celebrate! - Wind down the year with some good times with your professional community! Whether you are in the East Bay, South Bay, or just want to connect from your couch, we have something for you! Check out our upcoming events.

3. Consider finding growth, satisfaction, and an enhanced professional community by taking up one of the many volunteer spots our chapter needs to operate fully - see the new section below.
