The new TD Online Book Club starts on October 1st and is open to all learning and development professionals. The book club is a partnership with more than 50 ATD Chapters and you can sign up to join the free program here: .

Why join an online learning and development book club? Here are 5 of the top reasons for you:

1.  Participate Anywhere and Anytime
The online format of the book club means that you can participate in the online discussion anywhere with an internet connection, so you won’t have to worry about fighting traffic to attend a discussion. The online discussion is also on 24/7 so you can participate when it’s convenient for you rather than adding one more event to a busy calendar.

2.  Reading is Good for You
Did you know business people who read at least seven business books per year earn over 230% more than people who read just one book per year? Reading improves your intelligence, reasoning ability, and has been linked to reducing the chance of Alzheimer's. Joining the book club gives you the opportunity to read more and enjoy all the benefits that come with it.

3.  Connect with Other TD Professionals
Want to connect with other professionals who are passionate about succeeding in TD? Joining the book club will help you learn and grow with fellow talent and development professionals to help you improve your network.


4.  Advance Your Career
A book club can enhance your career on two fronts. First, the books you read will help give you the latest insights into the TD field. Second, the network you'll be building may help you with career advice, introduce you to new people and find your next job.

5.  Have Fun
Reading interesting books and discussing them with a group of other professionals isn’t just good for your career, it’s fun! Gain new insights, learn from others in the field and feel the sense of accomplishment that comes from finishing a book, all from the comfort of your own home.
