Corporate Membership

Corporate memberships allow multiple employees in your company to benefit from membership at a discounted rate, and these memberships are transferable so if someone leaves the organization, you can assign it to another employee.

The person who will manage the corporate bundle membership should complete the online application under their name. Once the application process is complete, you can then add the other members of your organization to your bundle. Additional members over six are at $70 per person.

Transition Membership

As a professional in between jobs, you’re looking for opportunities to network with others and become more marketable. Our Transition Membership is perfect for you. Join any time during the year and pay only $49.95 for a one-year membership!

Guidelines for Transition Memberships:

    • You must be unemployed at the time of signing up for membership.
    • If you become unemployed after becoming a Chapter Member, please understand that we cannot reimburse the difference.
    • If you become employed after receiving the transition rate, you will not need to pay the difference to ATD-PHL.
    • This offer may be limited to the initial membership for eligible new members or a single renewal for eligible current members.
    • After this one-year transition membership expires, you may renew your membership at the established chapter renewal rate of $99.

Note that verification of unemployment status may be required. Due to the non-profit status of our organization, we cannot extend this offer to independent contractors, consultants, or those who are self-employed.

If you meet these requirements, we'd love to have you join us at the "Transition" rate.

Member Testimonial

ATD-PHL is all about supporting achievement and growth.

I enjoyed the December Employee Learning Week Event and the chance to catch up with you and our colleagues.

Participation in the chapter was a crucial part of my network, in a year where I landed two clients in my target industries, and brought a world renowned adventure film festival to the Delaware Valley. The support and resources of the chapter were valuable in so many ways.

Member Testimonial

The first annual ATD Philadelphia regional conference in 2012 came at exactly the right time for me. I was beginning to transition from a career as a face-to-face adult learning director at a local college into workplace education. A bigger shift than I anticipated. I found out about the conference two days before it was to be held, and signed up. That day I met wonderful people from varied corners of the field, and attended captivating sessions. I left convinced that I was moving in the right direction. I kept coming back for more. I immediately was inspired to become active on the conference program committee. My participation affords me the opportunity to interact with thought leaders in the Training & Development field; this is a much richer experience than just being in the audience.

It’s not easy to change careers in midlife. My friends through ATD-PHL have been trusted resources pointing me to new and interesting positions, and have helped me get noticed. In fact, I landed in my current position because an ATD presenter/mentor knew someone who I wanted to know.

I almost always feel the SIG gatherings and chapter events are worthwhile. Sometimes I attend simply because I enjoy the networking, camaraderie, and friendship!

I highly recommend membership. No regrets! Please join me.
