Chapter Recognition         

We work to maintain our proud tradition of Chapter excellence by maintaining Chapter Affiliation Requirements (CARE). CARE is a set of performance guidelines designed to help chapters deliver consistent benefits to members. 

To achieve this standard, rigorous requirements must be met in five key areas: administration, financial, membership, professional development, and communication.

Professional Development

Smoky Mountain Chapter has been pre-approved by the ATD Certification Institute to offer educational programs that can be used towards initial eligibility and recertification of the Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) and Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) credentials.
