Attend an Upcoming Event

Austin ATD offers many professional development opportunities, including:

  • Chapter meetings - on the 3rd Friday of each month, we hold a luncheon meeting with a presentation relating to the core competencies in the learning & development profession. This is the primary meeting each month for our members, and it's a great networking opportunity. FREE to members!
  • Community of Practice (CoP) meetings - focused on topics of interest to members in a particular niche or subgroup. These groups meet monthly or if you don't see anything posted this month, be sure to check back soon. FREE to members!

  • Workshops - we frequently offer half- or full-day workshops for topics that require a deeper dive or a hands-on approach. The number of seats for most workshops is limited, so register early! Discounted for members!
