Update & Message from Chair

Last March we made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel the NEAC 2020 Conference with the hopes of postponing until 2021. Our committee chairs met in September and we have decided to cancel the 2021 conference.  Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the ATD New England Area Conference is canceled for 2020 & 2021.  These decisions were not easy but given the current environment it is the responsible thing to do. 

Many hours of hard work went into planning the 2020 conference.  I would like to thank all of our volunteers for their dedication and expertise.  Special thanks to our Committee Chairs – Leslie Bartholomew, Renee Herendeen, Taimur Kiddie, Tricia Richardson, Dawn Walker-Elders, Peter Ward and to Marie Cullen Oliver our Conference Admin.  Check out a complete list of our amazing volunteers below. 

We would like to thank the 2020 presenting sponsor D2L.  For over 20 years, D2L has been working with their partners to foster learning innovation.  D2L provides a learning platform called Brightspace, built for those who value employee development as a driver of business success.  Brightspace, incorporates peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, gamification, personalized training and more. 

Additionally, we would like to thank our other 2020 sponsors and exhibitors.  Check out a complete list and be sure to thank them as well for the support of this talent development conference. 

Until our paths cross again, stay safe and healthy!
