8:57:17 pm LandDDave: Q2) We’ve really used Webex alot to alleviate some of the time requirements for the Board. #astdchapters
8:57:21 pm dbolen: resend, wrong hashtag – Q2) How specifically do these technology tools help your chapter? #astdchapters
8:57:30 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave SL event was great. Turned into monthly Special Div. All are welcome since it’s virtual & Freehttp://bit.ly/9JDVbB #astdchapters

8:59:29 pm TerrenceWing: Most of our tech is used as a communication catalyst or learning vehicle (ie DimDim) #astdchapters
8:59:30 pm larrystraining: Q2) Jumping around like we are, it is hard to find information. When you get used to one technology it has changed.#astdchapters
8:59:46 pm dbolen: RT @TerrenceWing: Most of our tech is used as a communication catalyst or learning vehicle (ie DimDim) #astdchapters
9:01:01 pm LandDDave: @TerrenceWing Why DimDim over other services? #astdchapters
9:01:08 pm ImagiRaven: Becoming important to use tools our members r already on, like fb RT @ThomasStone: people are suffering from “profile fatique” #Astdchapters
9:01:19 pm dbolen: RT @ThomasStone: Q2) Doing virtual BOD mtgs during the winter months especially should be great #astdchapters great way to balance travel
9:01:19 pm Charnell_W: Q2)Broadly, tech makes most of volunteer ‘s time/reduce volunteer time so we can be strategic & lets us connect w/more mbrs #astdchapters
9:01:50 pm TerrenceWing: Price and browser based so no software downloads RT @LandDDave: @TerrenceWing Why DimDim over other services? #astdchapters
9:02:08 pm larrystraining: Q2) I think once we normalize it will be better. We used the national site the 2 years prior to this year, we are on site #4.#astdchapters
9:02:18 pm dbolen: @TerrenceWing Q2 not sure that SL would be a good draw for ATL, I’ve never had a satisfying experience #astdchapters
9:02:27 pm ThomasStone: @ImagiRaven Yes, that is why we will up our game on LinkedIn, rather than pursue more use of Ning or others like it.#astdchapters
9:02:31 pm TerrenceWing: @Charnell_W Saving our time is always a noble cause #astdchapters
9:03:29 pm dbolen: RT @Charnell_W: Q2)Broadly, tech makes most of volunteer ‘s time/reduce volunteer time so we can be strategic#astdchapters YES
9:03:39 pm TerrenceWing: @dbolen TIme to attract some new blood and better SL presenters. Takes time BC it is new and not widely used#astdchapters
9:03:58 pm larrystraining: I communicate a lot with the chapter on LinkedIn RT @ThomasStone: @ImagiRaven Yes, that is why we will up our game on LinkedIn #astdchapters
9:04:15 pm TerrenceWing: @ThomasStone BOooooo for mentioning Ning. The facists #astdchapters
9:04:21 pm dbolen: @TerrenceWing SL… and a big honking download client! #astdchapters
9:04:39 pm steve_maul: @ImagiRaven Agree. It’s easy to get drawn into having too many technologies; better to go for traction and uptake#astdchapters
9:05:33 pm steve_maul: Q2) SL still not ready for prime time IMHO #astdchapters
9:05:36 pm larrystraining: Do you use FB and LinkedIn as a board to members communication channel, or is it a member community?#astdchapters
9:06:02 pm dbolen: @steve_maul and keeping the tech profile simple #astdchapters
9:06:25 pm ThomasStone: @TerrenceWing I’m not a Ning hater like many are. I’ve not had issues with them. #astdchapters
9:06:52 pm TerrenceWing: @dbolen We used the hotel wifi. Not one glitch. We even streamed the live audience to the virtual audience in SL#ASTDchapters
9:07:13 pm dbolen: @larrystraining think that FB and LinkedIn can do both, we use LinkedIn groups and subgroups for comm and discussion#astdchapters
9:07:34 pm steve_maul: @dbolen As we’ve experienced, even with something like WebEx, the simpler the better for greater use #astdchapters
9:08:04 pm TerrenceWing: @ThomasStone They charge 4 what others r giving for free. After groups became dependent, they changed the game. Bad Form Ning #astdchapters
9:08:29 pm ImagiRaven: Personally, choice of tools such as Ning SL FB etc has more to do with access from work. Firewalls drive usage#Astdchapters
9:08:30 pm cindyhugg: Hi all! Sorry to join the party late. #astdchapters
9:09:00 pm TerrenceWing: Hi Cindy RT @cindyhugg: Hi all! Sorry to join the party late. #astdchapters

9:09:11 pm steve_maul: 2) LI sub groups good for SIGs/GIGs/CPLP etc. #astdchapters
9:09:25 pm larrystraining: @dbolen I agree it should be both. However, others don’t agree with the community aspect & control is their primary use.#astdchapters
9:09:32 pm TerrenceWing: @ImagiRaven Very true but access is becoming easier with mobile devices #astdchapters
9:09:34 pm dbolen: Q2 Ning with their business model change has removed it from association use. #astdchapters
9:09:49 pm larrystraining: Hi @cindyhugg #astdchapters
9:09:49 pm kellaprice: #astdchapters q1: Chapter technology varies by chapter.San Diego sends a “digest” weekly of happenings.
9:09:59 pm dbolen: @cindyhugg evening Cindy #astdchapters
9:10:28 pm TerrenceWing: Hi @kellaprice . We’re neighbors. I am in LA #astdchapters
9:10:36 pm JaneBozarth: .@ThomasStone love the phrase “profile fatigue”!#astdchapters
9:11:21 pm Charnell_W: RT @steve_maul Sill think its okay to try diff tech so they know what’s avail-they’ve heard of it but don’t know what it is#astdchapters
9:11:21 pm ThomasStone: @TerrenceWing I know that. But they have very cheap plans. They gave people lots of notice, and then extended it further. #astdchapters
9:12:12 pm TerrenceWing: Biggest challenge w these tools is getting members 2 engage. The means is there but the desire is still low#astdchapters
9:12:16 pm dbolen: Q3) Who is responsible for using/maintaining the chapter’s technology tools? #astdchapters
9:12:16 pm kellaprice: #astdchapters q1:How many of you are recording monthly programs for playback? Anyone using Second Life?
9:12:31 pm cindyhugg: RT @dbolen: Q3) Who is responsible for using/maintaining the chapter’s technology tools? #astdchapters

9:13:14 pm LandDDave: RT @cindyhugg: RT @dbolen: Q3) Who is responsible for using/maintaining the chapter’s technology tools? #astdchapters
9:13:28 pm steve_maul: @Charnell_W Agree, our Tech-Based Learning SIG spends lots of time to explore and expose members to all the tech.#astdchapters
9:13:35 pm ImagiRaven: Why I lovely iPad! RT @TerrenceWing: @ImagiRaven Very true but access is becoming easier with mobile devices#Astdchapters
9:13:58 pm LandDDave: Q3) We have a VP of Technology, and I sometimes step in as well. #astdchapters
9:14:11 pm larrystraining: Q3) Communication has done this in the past. Marketing has taken this over. I have been pushing for a technology position. #astdchapters
9:14:15 pm Charnell_W: Q3) It varies based on how its being used – Tech Chair does some but so do other board positions #astdchapters
9:14:16 pm dbolen: RT @dbolen: Q3 ATL has a VP Technology and a team of web wizards #astdchapters
9:14:30 pm TerrenceWing: @kellaprice LA has a monthly Special Division in Second life. No membership needed to participate http://bit.ly/9JDVbB#astdchapters
9:15:19 pm ImagiRaven: How can we make them more compelling? RT @TerrenceWing: Biggest challenge w these tools is getting members 2 engage. #Astdchapters
9:15:21 pm TerrenceWing: @ThomasStone Cheap is not free. Down with Ning. #astdchapters
9:15:36 pm ImagiRaven: RT @dbolen: Q3) Who is responsible for using/maintaining the chapter’s technology tools? #Astdchapters
9:15:36 pm cindyhugg: Q3) more and more chapters are having a VP of Technology as board-level position, but ask all to participate #astdchapters
9:15:36 pm Charnell_W: That’s great. So many in our chapters are still distant from technology RT @steve_maul: @Charnell_W #astdchapters
9:15:38 pm larrystraining: @kellaprice I use SL but not in the chapter. Hopefully the new leadership will be more receptive to technology in 2011.#astdchapters
9:16:11 pm TerrenceWing: That is the big question RT @ImagiRaven: How can we make them more compelling? #Astdchapters
9:17:04 pm ThomasStone: RT @TerrenceWing: Biggest challenge w these tools is getting members 2 engage. The means is there but the desire is still low #astdchapters
9:17:17 pm steve_maul: Q3) Varies. Some belong to “Technology”, others “Marketing”, others “Communication” #astdchapters
9:17:19 pm cindyhugg: @CIASTD is having twitter challenge w/ a chapter event. Working well! @ImagiRaven: How 2 make more compelling? @TerrenceWing: #Astdchapters
9:18:02 pm ThomasStone: Q3) We spread the responsibilities around. Tech is too integrated to have just one “tech” person. #astdchapters
9:18:04 pm steve_maul: Q3) I think those that are “Communication” oriented s/b centralized under Communications and serve the entire chapter#astdchapters
9:18:19 pm Charnell_W: RT @dbolen: Q3 how many of you all track e-mail opens and web use? #astdchapters
9:18:40 pm Charnell_W: RT @dbolen: Q3 – LinkedIn is a wide open for discussion (loosely stated) and dare I say – self promotion! #astdchapters
9:18:43 pm LandDDave: Q3) We’re having some volunteer challenges, so if someone’s willing to do something we jump at the opportunity.#astdchapters
9:18:45 pm TerrenceWing: @cindyhugg Cool idea. Does the chapter already use twitter? #ASTDChapters
9:19:33 pm larrystraining: TweetChat is not cooperating very well this evening. #astdchapters
9:19:39 pm cindyhugg: twitter contest details can be found here: http://ow.ly/37OMw it’s been good way to get others involved. hashtag= #crc10#astdchapters
9:20:10 pm TerrenceWing: Yep. Using Tweetdeck myself RT @larrystraining: TweetChat is not cooperating very well this evening. #astdchapters
9:20:19 pm dbolen: RT @larrystraining: TweetChat is not cooperating very well this evening. #astdchapters Noticed that too, moved to TweetDeck

9:22:32 pm dbolen: Q4 What’s been you chapter’s success in Twitter? mostly followers or engaged users? #astdchapters
9:22:45 pm steve_maul: Q4) Finding technical expertise in learning professionals – e.g. Java, CSS, etc. Would always prefer to not outsource.#astdchapters
9:22:48 pm larrystraining: Q4) One of the biggest problems I have seen is the human element. Sometimes people just don’t get it. #astdchapters
9:22:56 pm Charnell_W: Q4) Adoption, cost, engagement, ownership and figuring out how to keep manageable #astdchapters
9:23:11 pm LandDDave: Q4) Realizing someone can technically set up a website, SoMe profile, or e-mail blast, doesn’t mean its design is effective#astdchapters
9:23:41 pm Charnell_W: Ditto. RT @steve_maul: Q4) Finding technical expertise in learning professionals – e.g. Java, CSS, etc. #astdchapters

9:01:29 pm dbolen: Q1 transition in ATL – unemployed (but not like me as an “underemployed” consultant) #astdchapters
9:01:45 pm ErickTaft: Curious about the transition members. How has it benefited them? #astdchapters
9:02:25 pm cindyhugg: Pausing to listen to heart-moving rendition of Chile nat’l anthem after #33 rescued. #astdchapters Back in a moment!
9:03:44 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft think many in transition find that they have neglected building a network, holy $@&# I need to network, we can help #astdchapters
9:04:25 pm RachelMiriam: @cindyhugg Transition = Unemployed #astdchapters

9:07:59 pm larrystraining: RT @dbolen: Q2) Besides revenue for chapter operations, how does your model benefit the members? #astdchapters
9:08:43 pm jenni694: @ErickTaft for us that is true. But then when they get a job they disappear #astdchapters
9:09:29 pm dbolen: Q2 simplifying the org membership makes it easy for orgs to join and participate with transferable memberships #astdchapters
9:09:32 pm beneubanks: @ErickTaft I’d bet that transition members r not volunteering as much as we think they could. Like to see #’s on that. @dbolen #astdchapters
9:09:45 pm LandDDave: @larrystraining It was kind of a combination – sometimes it was a regular meeting and there were a couple of extra events. #astdchapters
9:09:57 pm RachelMiriam: @LandDDave We started a Transition SIG. What types of programming did you offer? #astdchapters
9:10:22 pm beneubanks: @jenni694 That kills me. More takers than givers out there, I guess? #astdchapters

9:12:42 pm larrystraining: Q2 I do not see a correlation between membership plan and value. I would gladly pay more 4 membership if there was more value #astdchapters
9:12:44 pm dbolen: Q2 in ATL org member $250 for three, each additional $75. Way simpler than before #astdchapters
9:13:14 pm beneubanks: @ErickTaft Making the case for membership value is a problem across a lot of professional associations! #shrm #astdchapters
9:13:51 pm ErickTaft: @cindyhugg @jenni694 @beneubanks that is disappointing, would like to see them stay around #astdchapters
9:14:16 pm larrystraining: Agree! RT @beneubanks: @ErickTaft Making the case for membership value is a problem across a lot of professional associations! #astdchapters
9:14:37 pm LandDDave: @RachelMiriam We brought in speakers on career counseling, and asked regular speakers to add focus on transition to topics #astdchapters
9:14:51 pm dbolen: @larrystraining value is derived by the member not by the $$. We must ensure that the member realizes the value proposition #astdchapters
9:15:15 pm jenni694: @ErickTaft #astdftl members benefit from free webinars and discounts to meetings, free mentorship program, + cplp study groups #astdchapters
9:15:32 pm beneubanks: @ErickTaft Maybe that could be the topic for another #astdchapters chat? How to keep transition members from dropping once they find work?

9:17:34 pm jenni694: @ErickTaft @cindyhugg @beneubanks #astdchapters you’d think they’d feel obligated to stick around and give back #astdchapters
9:17:47 pm jrrowenhorst: I’m VP of Membership and I’ve administered surveys and also pushed hard on LinkedIn. #astdchapters
9:17:57 pm jenni694: @TerrenceWing Tracy and @thiagi are great! Good to chapters too #astdchapters
9:18:08 pm beneubanks: @jrrowenhorst That’s great news! You’ll be better off for it not only short term, but for the long haul as well. 🙂 #astdchapters
9:18:16 pm ErickTaft: @jrrowenhorst: We have and found that we can get better info on things the surveys miss from talking to people #astdchapters
9:18:22 pm RachelMiriam: @LandDDave I like the integration into regular meetings. Many who are employed may be looking for options so it benefits all. #astdchapters
9:18:33 pm ErickTaft: RT @jrrowenhorst: I am currently unemployed and give a lot of time to my chapter 🙂 #astdchapters <— YES!

9:20:41 pm ErickTaft: @RachelMiriam Our chapter has had some speakers this & last year focused on job search techniques/networking #astdchapters
9:20:49 pm ThomasStone: Q3) We devoted part of a meeting to focused brainstorming, so that all attending members included in planning for next year #astdchapters
9:21:11 pm jrrowenhorst: Partnering with similar local orgs is also good, like SHRM or OD Network. #astdchapters
9:21:45 pm dbolen: Q3 we also go into phone tree mode and call lapsed members, we’ve seen success in the personal connection #astdchapters
9:22:06 pm beneubanks: @ThomasStone That’s a really great idea! #superbrainstormingsession #astdchapters

9:24:39 pm ThomasStone: Do other chapters tailor some communications (email, other) specifically to lapsed or otherwise targeted should-be members? #astdchapters

9:46:26 pm cindyhugg: Q6) I would like to see more chapters get creative in promoting both at same time. So many resources are available to do it. #ASTDCHAPTERS

8:49:12 pm dbolen: Q1 – ATL employs both executive board and board of directors to build a plan. Use SWOT as starting ppont #astdchapters
8:49:21 pm TerrenceWing: Q1 Nothing creative on this end. Twice a year at a brd mtg we brainstorm and solicit volunteers to make it happen#astdchapters
8:50:25 pm ErickTaft: Q1) Besides throwing darts? 🙂 We’ve used the SWOT analysis approach, flip charting ideas & funneling down. #astdchapters#ASTD
8:50:33 pm larrystraining: Q1 We have been working in a survival mode as opposed 2 an active plan. Existing plans were changed/dropped by new leadership. #astdchapters
8:51:15 pm dbolen: Q1 our challenge is building out the action steps & executing. Now have the president elect own the plan and 2x yr checkpoint#astdchapters
8:51:22 pm LandDDave: Q1- this is an area we need to improve upon. By the time one board gets rolling, their term seems to end. #astdchapters
8:51:50 pm LandDDave: Q1- we’re actually considering going to 2 year terms because of it. #astdchapters
8:52:13 pm dbolen: @larrystraining ATL’s last plan (2004-05) was all about getting well financially #astdchapters
8:52:17 pm TerrenceWing: @larrystraining That’s a good word for it. Survivor Mode made us lose 1/2 our membership. #astdchapters
8:52:36 pm ErickTaft: Q1) Also used CORE as a framework to organize flip chart ideas & SWOT analysis stuff #astdchapters #ASTD
8:53:06 pm cindyhugg: Some chapters who have done this have gone back.too long commitment RT @LandDDave: Q1- we’re considering going to 2 year terms #astdchapters

8:53:29 pm dbolen: @LandDDave Q1 that’s why we’ve set an owner so the plan can run across terms or we look 2x/ yr and tweak #astdchapters
8:53:32 pm larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? #astdchapters
8:53:53 pm LandDDave: @TerrenceWing How did ‘Survival mode’ make you lose members? I have an idea but would like to hear more.#astdchapters
8:54:15 pm LandDDave: RT @larrystraining: Q1 Does size of chapter contribute to planning success or failure? #astdchapters

8:56:15 pm LandDDave: @dbolen Was the owner a formal board member? #astdchapters
8:56:35 pm cindyhugg: @LandDDave its especially hard on pres because becomes 6 year term. unless you do 2 yrs for all but pres position.#astdchapters
8:56:47 pm TerrenceWing: @LandDDave @larrystraining I think the demographic is more important than the size. But size probably matters a little(no pun) #astdchapters
8:57:13 pm dbolen: Q1 re: chapter size, think it’s related to stubborn leadership or more kindly a committed champion to see the plan along#astdchapters
8:57:39 pm LandDDave: I think smaller chapters have difficulty with leadership , not so much in terms of quality but quantity. #astdchapters
8:58:02 pm dbolen: @LandDDave yes, prez-elect is on the board of directors #astdchapters
8:58:03 pm ErickTaft: Q2) What tools or resources help you with the planning process? #astdchapters #ASTD

8:50:45 pm dbolen: Q1) How does your chapter advertise events? #astdchapters #ASTD

8:52:09 pm TerrenceWing: We use email blasts, weekly eNewsletter, and a monthly postcard. We’re looking for more innovative approaches #astd #astdchapters

8:53:31 pm TerrenceWing: We’re building or Social Media campaign but we have to build the network first or we’re just talking to an empty void. #astdchapters

7:42:01 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining: Q1) Did the organizers see it as successful & why? #astdchapters
7:42:17 pm dbolen: @larrystraining q1 agreed, what’s the metric? #astdchapters
7:42:42 pm cindyhugg: How about all? RT @larrystraining: Q1) How are we defining Success, best feedback, most attendees, my personal favorite? #astdchapters
7:44:26 pm larrystraining: Q1) Generally we have great feedback & my personal favorites are events that get us active as well as introduce new ideas. #astdchapters
7:44:27 pm cindyhugg: #astdchapters Old story, but one rural-area chapter pulled 800 participants to a John Maxwell event a few years ago. Well received by all
7:44:57 pm dbolen: q1 with bimonthly chapter meetings we see ~ 15% membership turnout, suspect that’s norm based upon variable topic/location #astdchapters
7:46:01 pm LandDDave: Greetings all – joining the party a little late tonight. #astdchapters
7:47:12 pm ErickTaft: Have others tried “Meet the Pros” round-tables? Usually are well received & give ppl an opportunity to present for 1st time #astdchapters
7:47:18 pm cindyhugg: #astdchapters My fav events are the ones requested by members, that allow for invovlement, and end up promoting member engagement
7:47:30 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave Hello Dave. #astdchapters
7:47:44 pm cindyhugg: Hi Dave, welcome! @LandDDave #astdchapters
7:47:46 pm dbolen: q1 ATL has 10 SIG/GIG + CPLP study group + community involvement program, maybe some engagement metric, # members involved #astdchapters
7:47:56 pm larrystraining: Q1) We pull a lot of non-members to events based on topics. Atendees change based on topic. Core members come to all. #astdchapters
7:48:20 pm cindyhugg: Has this been constant over past few years? RT @dbolen: q1 with bimonthly chapter meetings we see ~ 15% membership turnout, #astdchapters
7:48:52 pm cindyhugg: What is this? RT @ErickTaft: “Meet the Pros” round-tables? #astdchapters
7:49:15 pm LandDDave: Q1) We’ve had our best turnouts for special events – CLO Forums, Member Appreciation Night, and others. #astdchapters

7:51:09 pm LandDDave: Q1) Our regular events average 15-25 attendees. Our current challenge for events is getting people to register earlier. #astdchapters
7:51:38 pm ErickTaft: @cindyhugg Get to hear from peers within learning from multiple companies. #astdchapters
7:51:44 pm dbolen: @cindyhugg appears to be the math, ATL market and programming facility constraints, we won’t draw 100s for routine mtg #astdchapters
7:51:49 pm LandDDave: Q1) It seems we are getting 50-60% of our registration within 3 days of the event. #astdchapters
7:52:03 pm ErickTaft: Q2) What is your chapter’s next development & programming event? #astdchapters
7:52:30 pm larrystraining: I have a question. Do you always have meals at your events. Sometimes I think an event would be easier without one. #astdchapters
7:53:09 pm dbolen: q1 chapter mtg ~60-80 some SIG/GIG ~25-30. last night, 12 at INTL SIG #astdchapters
7:53:28 pm LandDDave: We always serve food. It typically doubles the meeting costs. #astdchapters
7:54:08 pm LandDDave: RT @ErickTaft: Q2) What is your chapters next development & programming event? #astdchapters
7:54:15 pm dbolen: @LandDDave true here too, last few days, makes the catering dicey, is what it is #astdchapters

7:55:20 pm ErickTaft: Q2) @ASTDNWA Meet the Pros: Growing Talent and Engagement http://astdnwamayluncheon.eventbrite.com #astdchapters
7:55:25 pm cindyhugg: Paid events, yes. Free events (like SIGs), no. @larrystraining: I have a question. Do you always have meals at your events. #astdchapters
7:56:28 pm cindyhugg: RT @ErickTaft: Get to hear from peers within learning from multiple companies. #astdchapters Sounds like a great idea!
7:56:53 pm ErickTaft: RT @LandDDave: Q1) It seems we are getting 50-60% of our registration within 3 days of the event. #astdchapters
7:56:57 pm larrystraining: Q2) NEOKASTD How do you motivate your employees? http://bit.ly/d1exFV #astdchapters

7:59:34 pm cindyhugg: The RTA chapter does this…. RT @LandDDave: Our board has been considering adding an ‘early registration’ discount. #astdchapters
7:59:36 pm ErickTaft: @larrystraining Carrie has a good message. #astdchapters
8:00:29 pm ErickTaft: Welcome Janet. #astdchapters
8:00:43 pm dbolen: don’t you find that “early” registration discounts consistently get extended? #astdchapters
8:01:05 pm larrystraining: Hi Janet. Please tell me you got good news this week! #astdchapters
8:01:28 pm ErickTaft: Q3) What challenges do you face is providing development & programming? #astdchapters
8:01:49 pm JanetDiVincenzo: Yes, early birds are almost comical in that sense! #astdchapters #astdchapters
8:02:35 pm JanetDiVincenzo: Yes, Larry, thanks for inquiring. Proud owner of CPLP after my name! #astdchapters
8:02:37 pm cindyhugg: RT @dbolen: “early” registration discounts consistently get extended? #astdchapters No. RTA Chapter website reg does automatically.
8:02:45 pm LandDDave: We’re considering offering discounts to people who register for the next meeting at the current one as a test. #astdchapters
8:03:06 pm LandDDave: RT @dbolen: dont you find that “early” registration discounts consistently get extended?<< That's the risk we're afraid of. #astdchapters
8:03:16 pm cindyhugg: Hi Janet, and Congrats on CPLP! RT @JanetDiVincenzo: Yes, Larry, thanks for inquiring. Proud owner of CPLP after my name! #astdchapters
8:03:25 pm larrystraining: I am so happy for you, Congrats! RT @JanetDiVincenzo: Yes, Larry, thanks for inquiring. Proud owner of CPLP after my name! #astdchapters
8:03:26 pm PamWyess: We are doing an event next week–extended early bird discount resulted in many more sign-ups! Head game, maybe? #astdchapters

8:06:24 pm cindyhugg: RT @ErickTaft: Q3) What challenges do you face in providing development & programming? #astdchapters
8:06:36 pm JanetDiVincenzo: Thanks all! Not to brag, but I'm a CPT, PMP, CPLP. Boss only cares about the PhD. BooHoo. Want 2 tell her how rare my combo is #astdchapters
8:06:49 pm ErickTaft: Q3) Time of day has become a challenge over the past year. People are having trouble getting away for lunch. #astdchapters
8:07:00 pm cindyhugg: What I hear most: finding quality speakers. Q3) What challenges do you face in providing development & programming? #astdchapters
8:07:16 pm LandDDave: Q3) We sometimes struggle with finding a consistent theme to programs – as well as deciding if a consistent theme is needed. #astdchapters
8:08:15 pm JanetDiVincenzo: Note to all: we sold out our luncheon event today; 1st time in awhile. Speaker: Dr. Ralph Kilman, of Thomas-Kilman inventory #astdchapters
8:08:20 pm larrystraining: Q3) Programming to the lowest common denominator. Or another way of saying it, trying to please everyone. #astdchapters
8:08:47 pm dbolen: q3 quality speakers #astdchapters
8:09:18 pm LandDDave: Q3) Knowing what topics our members are interested in is also a challenge. Our survey don't help – nothing stands out. #astdchapters
8:09:33 pm ErickTaft: @JanetDiVincenzo Congratulations, which chapter? #astdchapters
8:09:52 pm dbolen: @JanetDiVincenzo hopefully no conflict at the meeting #astdchapters
8:10:43 pm JanetDiVincenzo: Orange County California. We had 55 today. Capacity of room. #astdchapters
8:10:49 pm melaclaro: @JanetDiVincenzo I like to think the sh*t-hot new web site had something to do with it, too. 😉 http://www.astdocbeta.org #astdchapters
8:12:18 pm ErickTaft: Q4) What are some unique things you have done with development & programming? #astdchapters
8:12:29 pm JanetDiVincenzo: Our chapter is proof that a superhumanly energetic VP of Comms and his team make a big difference in getting out the message #astdchapters
8:12:33 pm PamWyess: Programs that appeals to many (based on surveys/work sessions). Then mediocre turn out. Discouraging 4 the presenters, too. #astdchapters
8:12:48 pm larrystraining: RT @ErickTaft: Q4) What are some unique things you have done with development & programming? #astdchapters
8:12:58 pm cindyhugg: Sweet! RT @melaclaro: @JanetDiVincenzo http://bit.ly/91sTIa #astdchapters

8:13:40 pm JanetDiVincenzo: @melaclaro tell 'em about our "Summer Social" series you organized/are reprising #astdchapters
8:14:21 pm LandDDave: In the last few years, we stepped outside our core topics and offered topics dealing specifically with transition. #astdchapters
8:14:34 pm ErickTaft: @JanetDiVincenzo: @melaclaro Tell us more about this Summer Social… #astdchapters
8:15:42 pm melaclaro: Thank you! 🙂 RT @cindyhugg: Sweet! RT @melaclaro: @JanetDiVincenzo http://bit.ly/91sTIa #astdchapters
8:17:20 pm ErickTaft: Q4) What response do you get to hot/trending topics? #astdchapters
8:19:07 pm cindyhugg: RTA Chapter holds 'munch n mingles', which are lunchtime networking events. pay your own way, well attended #astdchapters
8:19:07 pm LandDDave: Our response to hot topics varies. We often learn that our members have different views on what is 'hot'. #astdchapters
8:20:03 pm ErickTaft: RT @cindyhugg: RTA Chapter holds munch n mingles, which are lunchtime networking events. pay your own way, well attended #astdchapters
8:20:08 pm dbolen: q4 depends on what's hot #astdchapters
8:20:08 pm PamWyess: Depends on the topic. Love the idea of a meeting devoted to transition. We have some. But do the ones who have jobs show up? #astdchapters
8:20:53 pm JanetDiVincenzo: Aren't we perpetually in a state of transition? Just sayin'…. #astdchapters
8:21:48 pm ErickTaft: @PamWyess I think those not in transition want to avoid the appearance they are looking for another job. #astdchapters
8:22:03 pm LandDDave: We have been surprised by how many people w/ jobs attended the transition workshops. It shows everyone is thinking about it. #astdchapters
8:23:17 pm JanetDiVincenzo: OC-Cal. devotes 1 of 12 monthly events to a non-speaker meeting that's just "structured networking." Members say they want it #astdchapters
8:23:28 pm larrystraining: Q4) I think hot topics are unique to different industries. We run the risk of alienating other groups. RE: common denominator. #astdchapters
8:23:54 pm PamWyess: Interesting perspectives on transition. Curious–what was the content/who presented on that topic? #astdchapters
8:24:14 pm cindyhugg: Yes, ditto. RT @dbolen: q4 depends on what's hot #astdchapters
8:24:41 pm ErickTaft: I'm sensing a trend & a challenge here. How do you design a program around a hot topic that will appeal to a broad audience? #astdchapters
8:25:58 pm PamWyess: People say that networking is important. Yet we don't seem to have great response around "networking. Ideas for positioning? #astdchapters
8:26:57 pm JanetDiVincenzo: @PamWyess can you elaborate on what has not worked around "networking"? #astdchapters
8:27:55 pm dbolen: @PamWyess in ATL we have 1 hr for networking at chapter meetings, it's been like that since I've been involved #astdchapters
8:28:18 pm PamWyess: Seems we have people comign for topics only. No interest, no show. Want to create that sense of commmunity… #astdchapters
8:28:43 pm cindyhugg: Bake it into every event. i.e. table topics before/after speaker. @PamWyess: Ideas for positioning networking? #astdchapters
8:28:45 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen Sounds like a good way to build a community. #astdchapters
8:29:43 pm PamWyess: …Have people recognize (or value) a community of practice. Hear of successful events or programs based around networking… #astdchapters
8:30:07 pm LandDDave: @PamWyess Here's a link to our most recent Transition Event. It was very well received. http://astdlijan10.eventbrite.com/ #astdchapters
8:30:15 pm cindyhugg: Agreed. RT @ErickTaft: @dbolen Sounds like a good way to build a community. #astdchapters
8:30:22 pm JanetDiVincenzo: @PamWyess Maybe you need to mix it up more — build buzz by doing something different. We held a monthly event in a park. #astdchapters
8:30:39 pm dbolen: ATL did a speed networking event that generated a lot of buzz, think speed dating with table topic facilitators #astdchapters
8:31:07 pm PamWyess: But not sure everyone understands (or values) the networking. Just looking for what's worked out there…. #astdchapters
8:31:19 pm larrystraining: Research how it applies to all groups. RT @ErickTaft: How do u design a prog around a topic that'll appeal to a broad audience #astdchapters
8:31:19 pm LandDDave: We're participating in the 2nd annual networking event with NYC Chapter and other groups. Over 200 people showed up last year #astdchapters
8:31:30 pm JanetDiVincenzo: @PamWyess For our event in the park, we had 4 exp. facilitators lead us in 4 teambuilding activities (TTT). Worked great. #astdchapters
8:31:52 pm ErickTaft: Q5) How does your chapter tie development & programming to CPLP prep and recertification? #astdchapters
8:32:16 pm cindyhugg: RT @dbolen: ATL did a speed networking event that generated a lot of buzz, think speed dating with table topic facilitators #astdchapters
8:32:50 pm cindyhugg: RT @ErickTaft: Q5) How does your chapter tie development & programming to CPLP prep and recertification? #astdchapters
8:33:20 pm PamWyess: @LandDDave Thanks, Dave–good idea. @JanetDiVincenzo And that TTT sounds fab, too. LIghtbulbs going off here… #astdchapters

8:34:02 pm LandDDave: RT @ErickTaft: Q5) How does your chapter tie development & programming to CPLP prep and recertification? #astdchapters
8:34:11 pm JanetDiVincenzo: Q5) Erick do you work for ASTD national? Kidding. In a chapter of close to 300 members, fewer than 5% are CPLPs. #astdchapters
8:35:43 pm ErickTaft: @JanetDiVincenzo So how can professional development & programing encourage certification? #astdchapters
8:35:57 pm cindyhugg: Sounds like opportunity for your chapter! @JanetDiVincenzo: In a chapter of close to 300 members, fewer than 5% are CPLPs. #astdchapters
8:36:15 pm LandDDave: I’m the only CPLP in our chapter, and am hoping to start a Study Group this year. #astdchapters
8:36:22 pm dbolen: we provide a study group, the cplpers <10 in chapter help with course. Of course the meetings and vol leadership provide hours #astdchapters
8:36:47 pm JanetDiVincenzo: I believe people will see the benefit of CPLP when employers insist on it. #astdchapters
8:36:56 pm cindyhugg: Many chapters organize program topics around the 9 AOEs (areas of expertise). Relevant regardless of # of CPLPs in attendance #astdchapters
8:37:48 pm LandDDave: Our chapter generally focuses our content in some way towards the AOEs. #astdchapters
8:37:53 pm ErickTaft: RT @cindyhugg: Many chapters organize program topics around the 9 AOEs (areas of expertise). Relevant regardless of # of CPLPs in attendance #astdchapters
8:38:26 pm LandDDave: I presented early last year on the value of CPLP, and I've got a nice group of people looking for me to launch the study group #astdchapters
8:38:54 pm dbolen: RT @LandDDave: Our chapter generally focuses our content in some way towards the AOEs. easy linkage #astdchapters
8:39:16 pm JanetDiVincenzo: What if ASTD national gave each chapter the CPLP Learning Materials free? ("it's not the razors, but the blades") #astdchapters
8:39:28 pm PamWyess: I've heard more and more job listings are asking for CPLP certification–any stats around that? (or anectdotal support?) #astdchapters
8:39:39 pm larrystraining: Q5) We try to tie all the meetings to the 9 AOEs, but it is not mandatory to present. #astdchapters
8:40:20 pm LandDDave: I find the materials to be the biggest obstancle to the study group. You really need the learning system, but it's steep… #astdchapters
8:41:10 pm larrystraining: Q5) Personally when I present I tie my RFP's to the AOEs. #astdchapters
8:42:26 pm ErickTaft: Q5) It is helpful to include the AOE the event links to too & # of recert hours from attending in the marketing materials. #astdchapters
8:42:40 pm larrystraining: Dave, let me know if there is anything I can do to help your group, even remotely. #astdchapters
8:44:25 pm ErickTaft: Q6) How are you leveraging social media in your development & programming? #astdchapters
8:44:57 pm JanetDiVincenzo: @cindyhugg Wasn't aware of ways to win the learning materials. please share! #astdchapters
8:45:10 pm LandDDave: RT @larrystraining: Dave, let me know if there is anything I can do to help your group, even remotely. <<< Thanks, I will. #astdchapters
8:45:12 pm dbolen: Q5 no, better to promote the competency model versus targeting the cplpers #astdchapters
8:45:53 pm LandDDave: RT @JanetDiVincenzo: Ive been part of 2 diff. CPLP study groups. Can write more tomorrow or so. <<RT @JanetDiVincenzo: During our sold-out monthly event today, there were real-time streaming tweets from one person… #astdchapters
8:53:28 pm LandDDave: When I close meetings, I generally plug the LinkedIn group as a way to “Continue the dialog from tonight”, w/ Mixed results. #astdchapters
8:53:33 pm ErickTaft: RT @JanetDiVincenzo: During our sold-out monthly event today, there were real-time streaming tweets from one person who was in the room. #astdchapters
8:53:49 pm cindyhugg: Q6 lots of ASTD chapters are on twitter. appears to be mixed use to engage members vs promote events #astdchapters
8:53:52 pm larrystraining: I try to tweet our events, however, our “current” meeting spot is in a museum basement and sometimes limits connectivity. #astdchapters
8:55:47 pm larrystraining: Do you tweet events from your personal account or from your chapter’s account. I use personal account. I reach more that way. #astdchapters
