ATD Dallas Board of Directors Overview

ATD Dallas is governed and managed by a Board of Directors elected by the chapter membership.  This group of volunteer leaders set policies and procedures within the limits as prescribed by the chapter’s bylaws and plan, administer, and implement projects, programs, and events for the chapter.

The Board of Directors, also referred to as Board Members, consist of the Executive Committee (which includes the President and Chairman of the Board, President Elect, two or three Senior Advisors) and other Board Members that oversee the key functional areas and hold the title of Vice President.

It is through this leadership team and their guidance, that the larger volunteer team and committees can execute programs and resources that provide educational and professional development needs for ATD Dallas members.  Together, through their commitments and actions, each board contributes to the vision of making Dallas the Talent Capital of the world!
