Call for Presenters

Through exceptional learning and performance we create a world that works better.

This is the mission of ATD and we invite you to partner  with us in this mission to bring superior quality education to our learners. This means submitting proposals to build core skills, share best practices and innovations, and lead the way on trends. Most of all, this means submitting proposals that are learner-focused and ensuring that each session is a learning experience with application to the participant’s work.

Our peer education program and the topics for submission should concentrate on the ATD Competency Model shown below.

If you are an experienced trainer who would like to share your expertise with the Hudson-Mohawk Chapter of ATD, we invite you to submit a brief summary of your training program for our upcoming calendar year. Our monthly programs run approximately 90 minutes in length. We also run some longer programs during our Talent Development Summit and special half-day events.

Please fill out our Request for Presenters and submit to Janet Kimlicko, Chapter Administrator, by either emailing it to her at or mailing it to 380 Morris Street
Albany, NY 12208. If you have questions, call Janet at 518.594.1661. We will contact you to let you know whether the Program Committee has selected your program.

Please note that if you are selected to present, you will be asked to provide a photo to be used on our website. The photo you submit to Janet need not be pre-sized as we will work with it to fit our requirements. To be specific, your picture will be proportionately reduced in size so that its longer side will be no larger than 100px, ergo a head-shot is much better than an “in situ” shot, so please plan accordingly.


For your proposal, please specify a target audience from the list of options that have been tied to the Areas of Expertise in the ATD Competency Model. The grid below will also help you identify the competencies and target audiences.
