    Have you ever wished Hawkeye ASTD had a membership level that included_____ (fill in the blank)? Your wish might come true!

    The Board recently created a Membership Levels Task Force charged with exploring membership levels of other ASTD chapters and professional organizations, assessing the needs and interests of our members, and recommending membership levels to be offered by Hawkeye ASTD in 2013. 

    We would love your input and assistance as a member of this task force. Tasks include helping with the research and the creation of the recommended membership levels. The amount of time needed will vary by the number of people involved. Whether you have an hour a month for several months, or only an hour, we welcome your help. 

    Email Melanie Hoffner, President, if you have suggestions, questions, or are already excited to volunteer and contribute to the success of this project, and the growth of Hawkeye ASTD! Thank you.

    There are so many learning and development conferences, seminars, and certification programs offered each year. It can be a challenge to research them and then narrow down the options to those that meet both your development needs and your budget.

    Please post a comment to highlight your experience with a conference and whether you recommend participating, or a question you have for your colleagues who might have attended a specific program you are considering. 

    Thanks in adance for sharing!
