ATD & Chapter Regional Conferences
The purpose of the regional conferences is to provide co-branded, extended programming and regional networking opportunities as part of ATD’s support of its chapters.

During ATD & Chapter Regional Conferences, speakers and attendees will:
  • Participate in education sessions to learn about emerging trends and best practices in talent development.
  • Meet and network with talent development professionals from across the region.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of topics in the areas of instructional design, training and development, personal and professional growth, and leadership development.
  • Walk away with practical knowledge you can apply back home.
ATD Chapter Leaders Conference (ALC)
Held each fall, the ATD Chapter Leaders Conference (ALC) gathers more than 300 chapter leaders serving ATD's more than 100 chapters to network and learn best practices for running their chapters. This annual conference provides an opportunity to network with chapter leaders and ATD staff, to grow the profession, and to learn what it takes to be a successful chapter leader.
ATD Chapter Meetings
ATD's more than 100 local chapters in the United States have regular meetings, as well as workshops and conferences. Many of these events may present speaking opportunities for you while also helping chapters provide consistently excellent programming for local ATD members.

Many chapter leaders reference the ATD Speakers Bureau, a repository of speakers connected to the workplace learning and performance profession, to identify potential speakers for upcoming chapter events and meetings. To be listed as a speaker, complete the speaker submission form on the speaker's bureau.
