A Message from our President

Mark Spool, Ph.D.

Fall is right around the corner! 

ATD-Philadelphia continues to offer our members great programming and two New Special Interest Groups! 

September will bring the chapter’s new Mentoring SIG launch beginning on the evening of September 27th at 6 pm.  Then coming in October we will re-introduce the Consulting SIG  on October 6th. 

Please see the events page on the chapter’s website for more details and to register. 

Our events continue to be virtual for the foreseeable future until we can meet again in person once the World Pandemic is under control. Our members' health and safety are our utmost concern.

As always please feel free to contact us at with any questions or concerns.
