Southern Connecticut Chapter

Hello and welcome to the
ATD Southern Connecticut Chapter!

We meet once a month, bringing together an amazing group of talent development professionals to network with peers from the corporate, consulting and technology worlds. Every month we feature leading thinkers from across the talent development landscape, ideas usually presented in the context of an actual corporate implementation.

Twice a year, we host one-day conferences that allow a deep exploration of key topics. In the fall, we host our Learning Technology Conference; in the spring, our Learning Ideas Conference. Both feature world-class companies presenting their cases & experiences, to help you and your team elevate your L&D practice.

ATD SCC encourages participation from everyone with an interest in L&D, welcoming diversity of thought, approach and background.

Join us at the next meeting! When you do, look for Kathleen O’Connell, our head of membership, or myself, for a personal welcome.
