    ATD-Cascadia is pleased to announce our first in-person meeting in years! That’s right–real humans and real fun! And rest assured, we are taking appropriate safety precautions.

    We’ll meet in the private room at the Lucky Lab bar on NW Quimby, where the ceilings are tall and the garage-style doors can roll up. First we’ll hold a “success sharing session.” It will be a chance for us to tell one another about our recent projects, tips, and learnings. Did you roll out a new class? Figure out a cool trick? Bring your latest insights.

    In the second half, we’ll enjoy structured networking. Based on our common interests and backgrounds, we’ll gather in small groups to talk shop and make new connections.

    Safety Precautions:

    We are limiting attendance to 20 people (max is 100), spacing the chairs, and requiring everyone to wear a mask. We also canceled the buffet, but drinks and food are available for purchase from the bar.


    • Check in begins at 6:00 pm 
    • Program begins at 6:15 pm.
    • This is an in person meeting at Lucky Lab on Quimby, 1945 NW Quimby Street, Portland, OR 97209
    • Our Chapter Meetings are a great opportunity to connect with talent development colleagues from across the area as well as to learn something new as each meeting focuses on a different topic related to our profession. Meetings take place the place the third Monday of each month (except December) and are open to members and non-members alike.
