Introducing ATD's New Member Onboarding Program

Attention new and “newish” members!

Have you ever wondered where to get started in order to make the most out of your ATD membership? A fabulous band of volunteers has put their heads together and created a new member onboarding program just for you! So whether you’re new to the talent development field or you’re a seasoned veteran, there’s something in it for you. Come join us for our upcoming session!

By attending, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Connect and collaborate with peers while building meaningful and lasting relationships
  • Immediately expand your professional network within an intimate group setting
  • Identify and prioritize the top goals that will bring you the greatest value for your ATD membership dues
  • Brainstorm with ATD co-hosts and peers to craft your professional development plan 
  • Gain a supportive network of peers you can tap into as a resource when challenges arise throughout the year
  • Attend optional bi-monthly group sessions to learn best practices, connect to new resources, and stay on track with your goals
  • Nosh and nibble on great food (hosted by the chapter)

While this program is intended for members who joined the chapter within the previous six months, any ATD member is welcome to attend.
