Greater Boston Chapter of ASTDRecognized with 2014 Membership Star

Greater Boston ASTD was recognized for sharing the ideas and success it has had with driving membership engagement and Chapter leadership succession through volunteerism. The goal of the Volunteer Program was to recruit and organize volunteers to accomplish key processes and activities to energize the chapter and increase member engagement. Through social media, meetings, our website and newsletters we put out a call for volunteers to form committees and accomplish key initiatives for the chapter. Our Learning and Development colleagues stepped forward in such force that we soon created a “Volunteer Coordinator” position dedicated to oversight of the Volunteer Program.
