Cindy Pollock has been in the talent development and instructional design game for over 23 years. She does it because she loves seeing people learn. When they have an “a-ha” because of something she wrote, she knows why she does what she does.

Cindy earned her B.S. in Journalism from Oklahoma State University (Go Pokes). Her career in instructional design started when her first boss said, “Hey, someone should write this down.” Her experience includes facilitation, talent development, curriculum design, knowledge management design, and trying to get people to make podcasts a true learning vehicle. As Director of Membership Insight, Cindy uncovers new and interesting ways to provide support and value to our members.
