On May 6, 2014, at its International Conference & Exposition, ASTD announced that it is changing its name to the Association for Talent Development (ATD). To view a recording of the special announcement, and learn about our new name, please visit www.astdnews.org.
This change reflects the dramatic transformation of our profession in recent decades: training and development professionals’ roles are much broader and deeper. What hasn’t changed in ASTD’s 70 years is the purpose of the fieldundefinedto develop people: their knowledge, skills, and abilities. Training and development continue to be the core of our offerings and programming.
Your membership benefits, local and national, will remain unchanged. Your online experience and access to your member benefits and content will not be affected.
Our chapter is working closely with national ATD to create a timeline of transitioning our chapter brand. We will continue to communicate efforts to complete a full transition during this, our 40th anniversary year.
