Welcome to the ATD Greater Boston Chapter

Did you hear the news? Our chapter is excited to announce that on May 6, during a special live announcement at the ASTD 2014 International Conference & Exposition, in Washington, D.C., President and CEO, Tony Bingham, and the Board of Directors announced that ASTD is changing its name to the Association for Talent Development (ATD).
While our name may be changing, the chapter’s board of directors want to assure you the local programming, networking, and services you have come to value and enjoy through the chapter will not change, nor will the chapter’s mission and vision. Like national ATD, training and development will remain at the core of our chapter, and 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 on this journey; together, we are creating a world that works better!

Member Spotlight Tech Talk! - ATD Greater Boston Learning Event

Yes! Two of our popular program themes combined into one! It is always interesting to hear from our colleagues and learn what they are doing inside their learning groups. We can identify latest trends, follow best practices and often avoid some common mistakes.

We also enjoy hearing from learning technology experts about which tools are best accomplishing what tasks.

Mark your calendar to join us on November 18 when several of our ATD Greater Boston chapter members get up and share what eLearning authoring tools are their favorite and (more importantly) why!

ATD Greater Boston – Recognized with 2014 Membership Star
ATD Greater Boston was recognized for sharing the ideas and success it has had with driving membership engagement and Chapter leadership succession through volunteerism. The goal of the Volunteer Program was to recruit and organize volunteers to accomplish key processes and activities to energize the chapter and increase member engagement. Through social media, meetings, our website and newsletters we put out a call for volunteers to form committees and accomplish key initiatives for the chapter. Our Learning and Development colleagues stepped forward in such force that we soon created a “Volunteer Coordinator” position dedicated to oversight of the Volunteer Program.
