ATD is continuing its quest toward improving the member experience. That effort is most noticeable in your everyday membership access. One change you may have already seen is that the Professional Plus membership now includes a 10-course adaptive learning library. Leveraging artificial intelligence, these courses ensure that you won’t waste time covering the topics you have already mastered and instead spend more time on the topics you need help with. The course selection covers a mix of talent development topics, which will change annually.
Additionally, the membership team has added to the collection of member-only job aids, giving both Professional and Professional Plus members access to more than 60 time-saving resources, coving topics from needs assessment to developing coaching programs.
However, the membership changes also extend to ATD 2019. This year, members can visit a brand-new member lounge in Salons ABC of the convention center, right next to ATD Central. This is an area where members can relax, charge their devices, network with other members, ask questions about ATD membership, take pictures in a photo booth, and pick up members-only swag.
The lounge will also offer informal sessions through Wednesday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on how to get the most from your ATD membership. And perhaps best of all, ATD members will have a chance to enter a raffle for a free year of membership.
Although the lounge is only available for members, attendees who aren’t currently members can stop by the Membership booth at ATD Central to join—and immediately gain access to the lounge and the other incredible ATD membership benefits. Plus, ATD is offering on-site discounts—$50 off Professional and $100 off Professional Plus memberships.
