Did you hear "training and development" has a new name?

On the evening of May 6, during a live announcement at ASTD’s 2014 International Conference & Exposition in Washington, D.C., Tony Bingham, President and CEO, and the ASTD Board of Directors announced that ASTD is changing its name to the Association for Talent Development (ATD). To view a recording of the special announcement, and learn about our new name, please visit www.astdnews.org.

Since ASTD was founded in 1943 the profession has transformed dramatically. Training and development professionals’ roles are much broader and deeper. One example of the breadthand depth of the profession’s work is the 10 Areas of Expertise in our Competency Model. What hasn’t changed in ASTD’s 70 years is the purpose of the fieldundefinedto develop people: their knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Training and development continue to be the core of our offerings and programming.

Your membership benefits, local and national, will remain unchanged. National ATD members can expect to receive a new membership card in the coming months with the ATD name and logo reflected on it. Your online experience and access to your member benefits and content also will not be affected.

NWA-ATD and its leadership is excited about this change and we look forward to partnering with you on this journey.
