The NB elearning Industry and the New Brunswick chapter of CSTD will be holding a meeting on 24 June in Fredericton in the Chancellor’s Room at the Wu Center UNB Campus – Fredericton, 10:00 AM – 2:30 PM. Coffee starts at 8:30 AM. On the agenda:
- International Strategic Plan for eLearning NB
- Election of CSTD-NB Executive
The interim executive asks:
Do you have any industry issues that you would like to have addressed leading up to and or at the next industry meeting?
Personally, I would encourage all training & development professionals as well as those interested in learning issues to join the CSTD chapter. You can join online, at the CSTD website. This is the first time that I can remember that we have a professional association for our field. A few years back, some of us had considered creating a chapter of ASTD or ISPI. It’s good to have a Canadian organisation that we can belong to now.
Please consider joining, and please consider attending the general meeting. Our chapter will only be as strong as our members.
