What is Power Membership?

ATD membership provides the tools you need for success. Chapter membership applies those tools to your organization and community. Together you are a Power Member! When you join your chapter and ATD, you choose to be knowledge leaders in the talent development profession and change makers in your own backyard. Joint membership offers learning professionals a unique opportunity to connect with local, national, and international professionals. Joint members can learn about trends in the field, and gain access to research, principles, practices, and templates they can apply directly to impacting organizational results, their community, and advancing their career.

Why Join?

The Association for Talent Development (ATD) is the world’s largest association dedicated to the talent development profession. ATD members come from more than 120 countries and work in public and private organizations in every industry sector.

Here's what our members are saying:

  • The annual State of the Industry report is worth double the cost of membership. It is rich with industry trends and a great resource for strategic planning in L&D.
  • I love my T+D Magazine - it has information that I use immediately after receiving it.
  • Members have an incredible amount of webinars available to them (at no cost) pretty regularly - almost weekly. The webinars are recorded for future reference and help me stay on top of important L&D resources.
  • Members receive a discount on all certificate programs and ATD Store resources and advance notice is given on promotions and sales. I'm a resource junkie, so getting a discount helps my budget.
