2018 Board of Directors

As an organization of volunteers, ATD NNJ appreciates the hard work of members who give their time, talent, and expertise to make our chapter a success.

Tim Tyler

I pursued and achieved the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) after ten years in the field because I came to see learning as more than just a corporate function. I believe learning is a profession, even a calling. Since then I have relentlessly developed my own skills and applied them to provide engaging and effective training for technicians, sales professionals, managers and entrepreneurs in manufacturing and real estate. 
I delight in learning challenges that involve organizational and transformational market changes, engaging a learner network that is either directly employed or independent and entrepreneurial.
As a corporate learning professional, I engage in conversations to both learn and share with like-minded learning professionals, sales and marketing professionals. As a mentor I have assisted younger colleagues to clarify their career  goals and take concrete steps to pursue them. As a local learning leader, I have guided NNJ ATD chapter to identify learning audiences and develop programming to attract a wide variety of learning professionals to the chapter, maintaining a focus on member value.
