Our Los Angeles Chapter and its members are unique! From Santa Clarita to San Gabriel and Torrance, the geographic area that is part of our Los Angeles Chapter is very widespread.
Our members are as diverse as the Los Angeles area. They are all passionate learning professionals, from organizational development experts to technical trainers and instructional designers.
The Communities of Practice are regional (Geographic Interest Groups - GIG) as well as topical (Special Interest Groups - SIG). They offer our members an easy, cost-effective, and efficient way of networking, connecting with the Chapter, and gaining valuable knowledge and skills.

Meeting 2nd Friday of every month (2 p.m. - 4 p.m.) in Torrance
We’re external trainers, consultants, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, internal trainers who plan to be external trainers some day, and people who just enjoy the interactions of a small group. We’re interested in getting visibility, finding clients, keeping multiple clients happy and being the most valuable and effective trainers we can be. Our meetings are open to all ATD-LA members and prospective members. We meet in a beautiful conference room close to the 405 in Torrance. We use a salon-style format. Each meeting starts with a short presentation, followed by discussion, and then we open it up for any requests for feedback or ideas. We are a small but lively group. We are always glad to share our ideas and experience and eager to hear your viewpoint. Please join us
