Seventy-five years ago, 15 professionals from the petroleum industry met for the first time as the American Society for Training Directors, which eventually evolved into the Association for Talent Development (ATD). Throughout ATD’s 75th year, we have been celebrating the vision and mission of this group with talent development professionals in our local community and around the world. As ATD celebrates its 75th anniversary and kicks off ATD Member Week, I can think of no better time for our chapter members to join or renew their national ATD membership.
As an ATD member, you have access to:
- a set of customizable resources to use on the job
- industry-leading content
- career-advancing educational programs
- a network of more than 35,000 members from more than 125 countries
- news from TD magazine, e-newsletters, and webcasts
- member discounts in the ATD Store.
If you have questions about how ATD membership has benefited professionals in our area, please feel free to reach out to Kelley Miller, the chapter’s VP of Membership. You can also check out this video to hear what talent development professionals from around the world have to say about ATD, and how the association has supported their professional development.
Notably, as part of ATD Member Week, taking place September 10-14, you can receive a 10 percent discount on your ATD membership dues on top of the $30 discount that Power Members (members of both ATD and their local chapter) already receive. Join or renew your ATD membership online or by contacting ATD’s Customer Care team at 703.683.8100. Remember to select our chapter on the drop-down menu online during checkout or mention our chapter’s name over the phone to receive the Power Member rate.Thank you for your continued engagement with ATD Central Florida and I hope you’ll consider taking advantage of this special opportunity to join or renew as a Power Member.
Yours in learning,
2018 Chapter President
