Welcome to the West Virginia Chapter of the Association for Talent Development!  2017 was a busy year for our chapter, and we already have some exciting things planned for 2018.  We will be hosting our State Conference again in November, and we plan to add a one-day leadership workshop later this year.  Our Geographic Interest Groups (GIGs) will be hosting lunch-and-learns in various locations around the state, and our Online Design Special Interest Group (SIG) will continue to meet in 2018.

There are many benefits to becoming a member of ATD WV.  You will get discounts to our conferences and events and gain access to our state-wide membership directory.  Members can attend our virtual study groups for the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) exam for free!  Best of all, you’ll be joining an enthusiastic community of training and development professionals who are eager to share knowledge and network with like-minded peers.

For more information about events or membership, contact me or any of the board members.  We are excited that you visited our site today and hope you’ll be back soon!
