"I joined CNY ATD when I changed positions in an effort to keep a pulse on talent development.
CNY ATD has provided me with many opportunities to learn the latest strategies and best practices
that our community is leveraging and having access to the national ATD resources has provided
an endless amount of learning opportunities. The ability to network with peers at events is truly valuable
and being a part of the leadership team has given me the ability to feel that I am helping
give back to an organization that has given me so much."

Christy Rohmer, Director, Education Services, NYSERNet.


“Joining CNY ATD has continued to help me increase my knowledge, confidence, and credibility,

which has enhanced the value that I bring to my organization along with providing

leadership experience in a different environment.”

Steve DeHart, CPTD, Leadership Development Consultant, Progressive Insurance


“The main value that I’ve received from CNY ATD is through the connections that I’ve been able

to make with other talent development professionals in the area. CNY ATD is comprised of

the widest array of talent development professionals that I’ve seen in the area, and

everyone is eager to support and help each other reach higher levels. In addition to the

networking opportunities, I’ve also found a significant amount of value with the CNY BEST

talent development program. CNY BEST has been a great avenue for us to

showcase not only our work as a company, but our client’s work as well.”

Jim D’Agostino, MEP Center Director, TDO - Train, Develop, Optimize


“As a local CNY leadership consultant, and part of a small team in a small business, I value

the networking with colleagues through CNY ATD. I find great value in these connections

to discuss talent development and share our mutual intention of creating impact with

our talent development work. I find it exciting to learn about all the great initiatives

that are helping our community and local organizations thrive.”

Cathy Gaynor, Managing Partner, Emergent
