President's Welcome Message
Welcome and welcome back!
Our main theme this year will be TRANSFORMATION; defined as “a complete or major change in someone or something’s appearance, form, etc.”
It started on May 6 when ASTD President and CEO Tony Bingham announced the rebranding of the association. The training and development field has changed and grown dramatically since ASTD was founded 71 years ago. Now the rebranded Association for Talent Development (ATD) has taken the next step in reflecting and supporting the global nature, tremendous diversity, influence and impact of this profession.
We’re preparing to recognize our 60th anniversary in 2015. Whether you’re a new, current or past member, we will be honoring our past and celebrating our future.
One thing that remains the same in this sea of change is our vision to be the “go to” organization for workplace learning and performance and our mission to provide relevant professional growth opportunities remains constant. In order to maintain the quality of our programs we’ve increased the price from $20 for members/$30 for non-members to $25 for members/$35 for non-members. We are offering a September/October/Novemberbundle for $60 and our membership dues remain the same at $65 for new members, $55 for renewals and $25 for students. If you are in transition, we have special, discounted rates for membership and events. Please contact any board member.
All the best,
