ASTD San Diego is your local chapter of the national ASTD organization.
We work very closely with the national organization, but we are separate entities and we require separate memberships.
ASTD San Diego provides professional and personal development at the 'grassroots' level, including in-person networking opportunities with your colleagues and peers in the local community and hands-on opportunities for career development and help growing your business and professional skills.
ASTD National provides extensive research, in the form of books, surveys on a range of important topics, and white papers and reports that are highly useful to members in many ways. ASTD National also provides professional development opportunities in the form of certification programs, webinars led by industry experts, and conferences. As an ASTD National member, you'll also receive the acclaimed T&D magazine, and discounts on most ASTD National offerings.
Many of our members find great value in belonging to both the local ASTD San Diego chapter and ASTD National.
Members of ASTD San Diego are eligible for a discount on ASTD National membership. It's called becoming a Power Member, and it's a great way to leverage your membership dollars!
