Note from the President:

Hello Everyone,

I hope you had a wonderful summer. It is always good to recharge and spend time doing things that make us happy or being with people that mean so much to us. But time flies and Labor Day has come and gone. Students are back in school, and there are other ways for you recharge yourself. ATD Central Mass has its fall workshop offerings available online CMATD Workshops.


Our September workshop Mentoring: Formal, Informal and Impactful presented by Sarah Scala, President and Principal Consultant, Sarah A. Scala Consulting, will explore both formal and informal mentoring as one of the best ways to strengthen skills or to take a leadership role in developing future leaders or followers. I hope to see you there as you continue your leadership and development journey.


Dyan Madrey

President, CMATD
