The Annual is divided into four sections: Experiential Learning Activities (ELAs); Editor's Choice; Inventories, Questionnaires, and Surveys; and Articles and Discussion Resources. The 2008 Training Annual includes a wonderful array of tools to help you with change. The centerpiece is Vince Miller’s article providing a history of the training profession. Mike is a walking archive of training history and was the 1974 ASTD national president. It is a pleasure to travel with him on this historical journey of how the training industry has changed.
