    Happy 56th Anniversary!



    ATD Eastern PA Thanks You!

    Greetings! 

    On April 29, 1962, our Eastern PA Chapter of ATD was launched!

    Click here to read about our history.

     Since that first group of 8 people - led by Irving Yeager of Western Electric - applied for a charter from ASTD National (American Society for Training and Development, ATD's original incarnation), our chapter has grown not just geographically, but demographically.


    Today, we have a group of over 100 chapter members and stretch from Wilkes Barre-Scranton to the New Jersey border to the Philadelphia suburbs and to Reading and beyond.

    Meanwhile, our profession continues to grow and change to meet the changing needs of business, industry, the government, and military.

    Our board and I sincerely thank you for being a part of our history, and for contributing to the growth of the individuals and institutions who are the hope for our future - here in Eastern PA and beyond.

    Joan Zachary
    Chapter President
    ATD Eastern PA

    P.S.

    Whether you have a few minutes to spare, or a few hours.... we'd love to have you join us and be part of the next chapter in our history!

    INTERESTED?
