    The Greater Las Vegas Chapter has been nominated for Chapter of the Month and recognized for hosting a virtual UnConference.  The success of the UnConference was shared through the Sharing our Success program.
    What makes the Greater Las Vegas Chapter unique and exceptional? 

    1. We are a fairly small chapter (approximately 80 members) - but the members we have are very actively engaged.
    1. We have a diverse range of members (from vendors and small business owners to corporate talent development professionals and specialists).
    1. We realize that our chapter members are eager for take-aways, best practice sharing and the TD community of (human) resources. Educational events are great, but connecting with peers can be just as, if not more likely to drive member engagement.  This is why chapter events such as our UnConference tend to be very successful.
    Looking to the Future
    We came to realize that having a bigger chapter wouldn't necessarily make us a better chapter. As a result, we decided to focus on actively engaging the members that we have. We plan to continue with this into 2022. Our goal is to have programming that is in touch with our members' needs and their reason for joining. In doing so, we believe we will continue to see the upward trend of meeting attendance that we experienced in 2021. We know that this engagement MAY lead to more members, but it isn't our main focus.
    To help ensure that we are in touch with member needs, we are using our chapter member results from the Talent Development Capability Assessment as the basis for event topics for the year. We will continue to do so into the future.

    The Greater Las Vegas Chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATD) was recognized for its submission to the ATD “Sharing Our Success” (SOS) program. The national SOS program identifies best practices among local ATD chapters and uses them as models for other chapters.

    Leslie Scarpace, Chair of ATD’s Chapter Recognition Committee said, "This recognition honors the Greater Las Vegas Chapter's best practice that demonstrates its commitment to managing a successful organization as well as advancing the talent development profession at the local level. We are honored to recognize the chapter with ATD's SOS recognition."

    On Febuary 19th 2021, the Greater Las Vegas Chapter conducted a virtual "UnConference." The concept of an unconference is that it is participant-driven, so any discussion of the topics is acceptable - but, rather than being led by one expert presenter, it is led by the participants. The foundation of an unconference is that "the sum of the expertise in the room is greater than the sum of the expertise of the people on the stage" (Dave Winer). As a result, an unconference drives best practice sharing and leads to discussion of the experts in the room.

    To host our unconference, we divided into three virtual break-out rooms based on each of the Talent Development Capability areas. We had a board member stay in each room to host, but not lead the discussion. We did provide some discussion questions to get the ball rolling (but only if needed) and then let the participants freely discuss. Participants were encouraged to enter and leave breakout rooms at their discretion.

    For example, in the Professional Capability room we asked: Many organizations are finding that their learners are looking for curated content that they can "pull" themselves. Have you experienced this shift? If so, what systems have you used to give this to your clients?

    At the end, everyone came back to the main session and shared a few of their key takeaways.

    This is one of our most interactive, engaging, and well-received events this year.
