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 and CEUs

ATD Smoky Mountain professional development programs are

pre-approved by the ATD Certification Institute for continuing education units (CEUs) towards recertification for Certified Professional in Talent Development (CPTD) and Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD) credential holders.
