This annual conference provides an opportunity to network with chapter leaders and ASTD staff, to grow the profession, and to learn what it takes to be a successful chapter leader.
ASTD Chapter Meetings
ASTD's more than 120 local chapters in the United States have regular meetings, as well as periodic workshops and conferences. Many of these events may present speaking opportunities for you while also helping chapters provide consistently excellent programming for local ASTD members.
Many chapter leaders reference the ASTD speakers bureau, a repository of speakers connected to the workplace learning and performance profession, to identify potential speakers for upcoming chapter events and meetings.
