Did you hear the news? National ATD is changing its name to the Association for Talent Development (ATD).

That means our local chapter will change its name to ATD too, in order to remain affiliated with the national organization. Over the next year you will notice our chapter’s transition to our new name and brand, starting with the introduction of our new chapter logo and change of colors from green and blue to orange and red.

This change has occurred as sage-on-the-stage training has long since morphed into comprehensive talent development that involves coaching, knowledge management, change management, performance improvement, instructional design, learning technology, talent management, and evaluating learning impact.

Over the next few months, we will be asking you to vote on our new name. This chapter is dedicated to you, our members, and that means we want to make this move together.

While our name may be changing, we assure you our programming, networking, and services you have come to value and enjoy through this chapter will not change, nor will our mission or vision. Like national ATD, we pledge our service and commitment to you is stronger than ever.

We will continue to keep you abreast of our change, and look forward to you joining us in this journey. Together, we are creating a world that works better!
