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!
  • SIG (Special Interest Group) 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!

Get social with other members

We recommend that everyone get involved with our chapter's social media pages and groups. It's an easy way to find out about upcoming events, learn about workplace trends, and learn from your fellow members.


Your membership is like anything else in life -- the more you put in, the more you get back. Volunteering with our chapter is a great way to meet people and quickly develop a sense of community with other members. 

Most volunteer opportunities do not require special skills or a heavy time commitment. But if you do have special skills or want to volunteer a significant amount of time, we can accommodate that too!
