Now accepting presenter proposals for 2017

As every January ... our ATD chapter 

will have an opportunity to 

celebrate and learn.

In January our meeting will be a structured knowledge share led by local experts from the local ATD Detroit community.

The attendees will have an opportunity to exchange information, knowledge and questions with other members and guests in 3 of the topic areas identified for that meeting.

You will be participating in each "exchange" for about 20 minutes, and then rotating to the next topic of your choice.

Our chapter has been recognized by our international charter organization with the award of "Sharing Our Success (SOS)".

The mission  of the ATD SOS program is to foster strong, healthy chapters and promote synergy through rewarding and recognizing chapters that share their best  practices with other chapters. 

The strategic planning process has been the latest Detroit ATD recognition.

ATD Detroit achieved 100% of the CARE (formerly CORE) compliance requirements for this year. 

ATD Chapter Affiliation Requirements (CARE) are a set of performance guidelines designed to help chapters deliver consistent benefits to members. 

CARE consists of elements in five key areas that are necessary for running a chapter like a business: administration, financial, membership, professional development, and communication.

Tony Bingham, ATD's President and CEO recently recognized the ATD Detroit Chapter as Membership SUPER STAR!

That showcases the commitment of our members to fully engage and take advantage of dual memberships (at a local and at a national level).

"... The value  you provide to your members through well run chapter programs, services, and exceptional operations is the result of the individual time, resources, innovation, thought, and dedication ... partnering with ATD to provide and sustain a vibrant community serving our members and the entire talent development profession."
