Just learned that Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana has again proclaimed Employee Learning Week in his state. This comes through the direct efforts of our local chapters in Louisiana. Other proclamations have been declared in Ohio and Missouri. Employee Learning Week is off to a great start and I continue to receive emails from organizations around the country that detail the creative efforts being made to recognize and celebrate the value of employee learning and development.

Here at national ASTD we just heard Steve Gladis speak about leadership. It was a great talk, filled with good insight, humor, and practical take-aways. If you are celebrating Employee Learning Week, be sure to drop me a note at elw@astd.org to share your story. You'll be recognized for your efforts with a Champion of Learning certificate.
