ASTD is now the Association for Talent Development

The American Society for Training & Development is changing its name to the Association for Talent Development. The CCASTD Board of Directors is in the process of working out the logistics of what the change means for our chapter. Changing our name requires the approval of membership through a constitutional amendment. To learn more about the change from ASTD to ATD, visit www.astdnews.org.
