Welcome to the Austin Chapter of the Association for Talent Development 
Our mission is to advance Austin's learning community.


We are no longer called the Austin Chapter for the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD). We have a shorter name, Austin ATD (the Association for Talent Development). The training and development field has changed and grown dramatically since ASTD was founded 71 years ago. Our national organization is evolving to reflect and support the global nature, tremendous diversity, influence, and impact of this profession. And so are we!
