(formerly American Society for Training & Development)
Our mission is to advance Austin's learning community.

ASTD is changing to meet the growing needs of a dynamic, global profession!

Here is a peek at our new logo...



On May 6, during a special live announcement at ASTD’s International Conference & Exposition, Tony Bingham, President and CEO, and the ASTD Board of Directors announced ASTD is changing its name to the Association for Talent Development. This exciting news means that we will be implementing branding changes soon.
