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!

In the next few weeks, you'll start to see our new branding and color scheme throughout our websites and social media sites. Stay tuned for more changes to come. Soon we will also be transitioning to a new domain as well. We are excited about what the future holds!
