    Our chapter wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Also, we want to say Thank You for your support to ATD in 2016. The growth and success of the chapter could not have happened without our members, corporate sponsors, strategic partners, and friends.

    We are planning a sensational 2017 with exciting luncheon events and a new evening program (4 sessions) focusing on Employee Engagement. Stay tuned as we finalize all the details; an announcement will come very soon.

    Here are some highlights for our chapter this year:

    - We won Chapter of the Month in January 2016. First time achievement and recognition from ATD National.

    - We welcomed Ai Signal Research (ASRI) as a new corporate Sponsor. Huntsville Hospital and Redstone Federal Credit Union continued their support to ATD-N.AL as Corporate Sponsors.

    - The ROI Institute became a Strategic Partner and Dr. Patti Phillips, CEO of ROI Institute joined our chapter.

    - We established a relationship with Legacy Christian University so our members could receive a 15% discount on tuition.

    - ATD-N. AL members can now become members at Redstone Federal Credit Union

    - Our budget and chapter membership increased significantly with most of the growth occurring with Corporate Sponsors and college students.

    - We launched a successful evening program entitled “Next Level – How to Move Upward and Forward in your Career”.

    - We co-hosted a Human Resources event with Athens State University and the SHRM – Tennessee Valley Chapter.

    - We joined the Hispanic Business Network of North Alabama in order to serve and partner with local Hispanic business owners.

    As you can see, we were really busy and 2017 looks to be just as great. Lastly, we will have a new Board of Directors to serve the community and our members. Without their selfless service and leadership, the chapter could not function. Here is the Board of Directors for 2017:

    VP of Finance – Dale Lenahan                                                                   
    VP of Programs – Gia Giacomoni
    VP of Communications/Marketing – John Bentley
    President Emeritus – Roger Kitchen Jr.

    OPEN POSITIONS: President, Secretary, VP of Technology, VP of Membership, Director at Large

                   Finally, 2016 was my last year as the Board of Directors President. It has been an honor and pleasure to serve our chapter and membership. I appreciated all the support and encouragement I received as I served ATD. For the first time in a long time, I have not made any plans of how I will serve the community in 2017. I am staying open to new opportunities. May you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Years.

    God Bless,

    Roger Kitchen Jr.
