Volunteer Opportunities

ATD-Orange County is a robust community of learning and development professionals supported primarily by volunteers. Volunteering offers many benefits.

Besides giving you greater visibility in your professional community:
  • it increases and strengthens your network and
  • gives opportunities to develop skills for use back on the job (including leadership and supervisory skills, which are key to career advancement!)
What's more, volunteering is an opportunity to give back to your professional community by helping others as you have been helped in your career - an opportunity to make a positive difference in your field.

Below you will find posts for open positions in ATD-Orange County.  They range from long-term, year commitments, to shorter-term team commitments, to ad-hoc projects.  We invite you to check them out, and learn today what you can do tomorrow!

Finally, if you have an interest on serving in one of these positions (or any position you may have heard of when networking with our teams), please let us know by completing our Volunteer Interest Form, unless another contact is specified in the post.

    ATD-OC is looking to add to our community's pool of knowledge through the creation of original content. The content would address topics of interest to the talent development community, and would explore the myriad of development opportunities our chapter offers its members.

    You could submit original content based upon your experiences in training, instructional design, or eLearning, or you could select from one of our Community Content Calendar topics. And while we'd be thrilled to list you as a "Chapter Writer," we'll be equally elated if you elect to take on a single article. Either way, you'll find a way to get your unique voice out to a community of talent development professionals.
