About Us

As a part of the 70,000 member-strong Association for Talent Development (ATD), Greater Twin Cities Chapter (ATD-GTC) is the second largest in the United States. We are the go-to professional development resource for workplace learning and performance professionals in the Twin Cities.

Founded in 1958, we’ve been going strong for more than 50 years. Formerly known as ASTD – Southern Minnesota Chapter, our name change in 2002 reflects a focus on learning and development professionals in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area.

Today, we are the second largest chapter in the United States, serving over 650 learning, training and development professionals. Highlights of our chapter include:

  • An annual regional conference that draws over 500 participants, offering top quality keynote, breakout, and pre-conference workshops.
  • Monthly meetings with dynamic, nationally and internationally-known speakers like Bob Mosher, Josh Bersin and Allison Rossett which draw in 80-175 members and guests each month.
  • A monthly e-Newsletter, Spectrum, that features articles each month around a particular topic of interest to WLP professionals.
  • Social media connections and web-based learning opportunities.
  • Active Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that draw in members and guests alike for topics such as coaching, diversity, elearning, entrepreneurship, training, and much more.
  • ATD-U, a series of workshops that get deeper into current WLP issues so that our members can increase their professional knowledge and value.
  • A highly active chapter membership, with a significant volunteer involvement rate.

ATD National

ATD-GTC is a chapter of the national ATD organization. While there are chapters in every state, ATD-GTC is proud that we are one of the Top 10 chapters in the nation. While local chapter membership offers opportunities to get involved in your business community, national membership helps you to connect to the learning community outside of the Greater Twin Cities. The cost for a national membership is additional to membership in ATD-GTC. Visit ATD's National Web site at https://www.td.org for more information.

ATD-GTC Board meeting minutes and financial information is available to members upon request. If you would like to receive this information for the chapter, please request this at info@atd-gtc.org.
