Message from Jeff...
Congratulations to our Power Member Hallie Sinor for winning the August prize drawing for a free ATD National Certification Program! As one of our most active members, it's no surprise that Hallie was able to win the prize. I also want to give a big thank you to ATD National for providing this amazing high-quality prize for our chapter.

August was the most active month for the chapter in years, and we thank you all for keeping our non-profit group dedicated to Bay Area talent development thriving. If you haven't had a chance to attend an event this year, we'd love to see you and help you build connections within our community. Check out our events below and find the one that speaks to you and if you're not already a member perhaps now is the time.
