Our mission is to empower professionals to develop knowledge & skills successfully.



About Us

Create a world that works better by empowering professionals to develop talent in the workplace.  The Puget Sound Chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATDps) is a local association committed to talent development professionals in the Puget Sound area. We are here for our members and the broader talent development community in the Puget Sound.

Our Connection with National ATD

We are proud to be a part of National ATD, the world's largest talent development association. Membership in the local chapter is separate from membership in the national organization. Every chapter has a unique blend of benefits and pricing for their members. In 2016 we were recognized by ATD National as a membership super star chapter when over 45% of our local chapter members were also National ATD members as well. This joint membership with both a local and national ATD organizations is also known as 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! 

Our Chapter was organized in 1953 by a core of professionals in the training and development field to offer support and information on the latest trends in talent and employee development. 

Chapter Offerings and ATD Capability Model

Our membership programs and resources are based on the ATD Capability Model. ATD defined these capabilities through deep research in the talent development field. They are considered to be the core of what talent development professionals need to know and do to be successful. We base our chapter events and special offerings around this capability model.

Chapter Operating Requirements: CARE

As part of the connection with national ATD, ATD Puget Sound is designed to help the chapter deliver consistent benefits to members and ensure the chapter is run like a business. This achievement = consistently strong benefits to chapter members! We are proud of this ongoing accomplishment.
