November Message from the Chapter President

15 Nov 2022 3:54 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

“Moral excellence comes about as a result of habit. We become just by doing just acts, temperate by doing temperate acts, brave by doing brave acts.” Aristotle

Our keynote speaker at ALC this month referred to the quote above. It’s a good one to reflect upon. I ask myself what habits am I cultivating that will bring about excellence?  What habits am I cultivating that will not bring about excellence? Your membership and engagement in your Pittsburgh chapter is a space to cultivate those habits that bring excellence.  For example, five members of our chapter’s executive board attended ALC this month.  I’ve learned that three members of our chapter will be giving a presentation at ATD ICE in San Diego in May. And congratulations to member Paul G., who won the Panera gift card at our November 10 lunch and learn program. We have plenty of action to finish up this calendar year, including an in-person networking event at the Hard Rock in Station Square, Pittsburgh on December 6.  I hope to see you there!
