Who doesn’t love a great conversation with fun and bright people? Add an element of learning to a meaningful dialogue and I am sold.

Alpha Gamma Delta webinars have opened the door to a consistent and available opportunity to connect—not only with other members, but to a personal development platform, as well.

This invaluable resource meets me where I am in my specific moment, whether that be closing out a day in the office, at home or creeping alongside Seattle/Tacoma commuter traffic. The subject matter has been extremely timely for me, as I am on the heels of a new career move. As I re-enter the professional space of supervising staff, I appreciate an easy way to brush up on leadership skills and strategies for best practices to hone interpersonal relationship building efforts. The price is right, too—as in, it’s free to all members.

Were you aware of this amazing benefit which is generously funded by the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation? Don’t feel bad if this is the first you’ve heard about it. What is that adage about long journeys beginning with a single step? Take that first step by planning to participate in the final spring webinar, “Don’t be a Lady, be a Legend: Increasing Self-Esteem in Your Life,” Tuesday, May 14 at 8 p.m. ET.

Chapter Advisors who attended the 2018 Academy for Chapter Advisors will be pleasantly surprised that Alpha Gam has continued a collaboration with Dr. Daryl Appleton, LMHC, ED.D. for the spring webinar series. Joining Dr. Daryl is co-owner Jennifer Weaver-Breitenbecher, LMHC. Together, they deliver a highly engaging. relatable experience.

I certainly don’t want to fuel any FOMO-induced anxiety by recapping the three previous webinars hosted by Dr. Daryl and Jennifer, but if you would like to see an overview of the content, check it out here.

So what are you waiting for? Register for the final webinar! Be sure to explore the other personal and professional development offerings sponsored by the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation in the Alpha Gam Access section of the myAlphaGam portal.

Have you participated in any of the webinars? I would love to hear what you found helpful or the strategies and practices you’ve employed. Also, for participants and non-participants, what resources or practices have you found over the years that have become your “go to” around these topics? What would you like to see for future offerings from Alpha Gam that would continue to keep Alpha Gam and our sisters #lovingleadinglasting? Comment below!
