The U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution recognizing Employee Learning Week. Several ASTD chapters have secured proclamations from their local cities, counties, and states also declaring Employee Learning Week 2010.

Some businesses are hosting learning fairs, others are holding lunch & learn events, still others are tying performance reviews to the organization's learning initiatives. Individual learning professionals are planning to send learning tips to their clients. Training departments around the country - and across the globe - are planning activities to recognize the critical role that learning and development plays in organizational success.

So what are YOU doing?

ASTD is holding several events for our own employees. And we're also hosting a FREE webcast on The New Social Learning, the book by Tony Bingham and Marcia Conner. The webcast is December 8 and there are still a few spots left, so be sure to register.

We'll be posting some other great resources for you to take advantage of in future blog posts. Remember -- Employee Learning Week is a great time to celebrate the value of what learning professionals do every day. And it's a great week to treat yourself to some learning opportunities too!

Be sure to let us know what you do to celebrate #elw10 (if you're going to tweet about your activities, please use this hash tag!). Email elw@astd.org so we can send you a Champion of Learning certificate!
