Our Vice President of Membership, John Wright, recently received this email:

I truly enjoyed the ATD Forth Worth/Mid Cities Chapter Meeting on May 5, 2016.  Everyone was extremely friendly and  welcoming. I enjoyed your comments about leadership and found the statistics you provided very informative.  Matt Hirst provided an excellent presentation about GameStop and how to create strategic L&D value.  At the end of the meeting, I met several new people and found it to be a great networking event.  Thank you for the invitation to attend. I will definitely be joining this group.
