September Message from the Chapter President

“Aprils have never meant much to me, autumns seem that season of beginning, spring.” --Truman Capote

Summer is officially over and it’s time to re-engage.  Fall is my favorite time of the year. It feels like the time to get back to school, back to work, back to life. I indulge in my nerdy pleasure of seeking out the perfect pens, planners, folders, and other fresh office/school supplies—my gear for a productive year. I invite you to take a deep breath of the crisp autumn air and reengage with what matters to you. Pittsburgh ATD has many opportunities this fall for you to turn over a new leaf!
