2017 Annual Regional Conference for Professional Development

Thanks for joining ATD-PHL for our 6th Annual Regional Conference for Professional Development which took place on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business. Over 130 attendees learned about becoming exceptional L&D talent from our fantastic keynote speaker, Jeffrey Orlando, and then proceeded to one of three breakout sessions to further their knowledge building. Attendees also engaged with exhibitors and sponsors while networking with L&D professionals from across the Greater Philadelphia region. What an incredible half-day of learning!

Member Testimonial

The first annual ATD Philadelphia regional conference in 2012 came at exactly the right time for me. I was beginning to transition from a career as a face-to-face adult learning director at a local college into workplace education. A bigger shift than I anticipated. I found out about the conference two days before it was to be held, and signed up. That day I met wonderful people from varied corners of the field, and attended captivating sessions. I left convinced that I was moving in the right direction. I kept coming back for more. I immediately was inspired to become active on the conference program committee. My participation affords me the opportunity to interact with thought leaders in the Training & Development field; this is a much richer experience than just being in the audience. 

It’s not easy to change careers in midlife. My friends through ATD-PHL have been trusted resources pointing me to new and interesting positions, and have helped me get noticed. In fact, I landed in my current position because an ATD presenter/mentor knew someone who I wanted to know.

I almost always feel the SIG gatherings and chapter events are worthwhile. Sometimes I attend simply because I enjoy the networking, camaraderie, and friendship!

I highly recommend membership. No regrets! Please join me.
