Sarasota - Bradenton Area GIG (Geographic Interest Group)


This Geographic Interest Group (GIG) is for ASTD members that live or work in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. The GIG has been in existence since 2000.  The purpose of this GIG is to provide the  "South-of-the-bay" members and the ASTD Suncoast Chapter:

  • A more convenient venue in addition to the regular Clearwater and Tampa meetings sites
  • Help in increasing and retaining ASTD members
  • Increased networking opportunities (the primary reason why people join ASTD)
  • A focus on local issues that can be addressed more easily in a smaller local group
  • An opportunity to share information and knowledge

We invite everyone to participate in choosing issues, discussing training ideas, and to present on topics that focus on their needs and concerns. We're still in the planning stages but we want to hear from you!

For more information contact JoAnn Froman or Brenda Vallieu.
