September 19, 2016 – The Los Angeles Chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATD), formerly ASTD, was recognized for its submission to the ATD “Sharing Our Success” (SOS) program. The national SOS program identifies best practices among local ATD chapters and uses them as models for other chapters.
Based on the reported joint membership percentage, ATD-LA is recognized as a Chapter Membership STAR with joint membership between 40-45 percent.
ATD-LA had the greatest increase in number of joint members from 2014 to 2015. Among ATD’s medium chapters (those with 100-349 members), the Los Angeles Chapter was recognized for its growth rate.

Milestone Anniversary: Seven decades. The world is a vastly different place today than it was when the chapter was originated. As ATD celebrates 70 years of serving the training and development profession we note that despite many important developments that have occurred in the world our members have always been our top focus.
Chapter of the Month Award: The Chapter of the Month program highlights a chapter each month that deserves special recognition. Recipients must have had a Sharing Our Success (SOS) submission accepted, be 100% CARE achieved, innovative, and have not been featured as Chapter of the Month within the past 18 months.
Sharing our Success (2013): Next Level Tool to Set Goals. After operating for years with an informal infrastructure, the Los Angeles Chapter desired to function more like a business and build a solid foundation that would last for future leaders. To assist with strategic planning and 2013 goal setting, the chapter relied on the Next Level tool to identify the chapter's strengths and weaknesses and focus its efforts for the year.
