Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

As a chapter, we are committed to finding new and different ways to support our members and their professional needs. This year, we aligned our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) with ATD National’s Communities of Practice (CoPs). By doing so, we encourage our members to take their professional development to a deeper level by learning about the rich offerings our SIGs deliver and the wealth of information available from our National Partner’s CoPs. Please take a few minutes to read about the SIGs below and check out their respective CoPs at www.astd.org/Communities-of-Practice.

ATD Greater Atlanta Special Interest Groups (SIGs) represent one of the many ways to grow professionally and personally, to network, learn new trends and industry directions, and to take useful information back to your organization.

Most Atlanta Chapter SIGs meet bi-monthly and feature high-quality presentations by local or even national training and development practitioners.
Many feature case history presentations allowing attendees to evaluate and learn from the experience of others.
All SIG meetings share a common goal of enhancing the value of ATD Greater Atlanta membership, providing professional growth and a wide spectrum of opportunities.

Our SIGs also provide a wonderful opportunity to become personally involved in your Atlanta Chapter.

Geographic Interest Groups (GIGs)


Geographic Interest Groups (GIGs) are designed to extend ATD Greater Atlanta programs to geographic areas outside of the Atlanta area. While its members have ATD Greater Atlanta member privileges, the GIGs provide meetings at convenient times and locations so members don’t have to miss valuable time away from work in traveling to Atlanta. GIGs allow members to meet other workplace learning and performance professionals and experience quality professional development programming close  to home.  For more information, click on the GIG name below, email us or check out the Events Calendar for upcoming events.
