The Association for Talent Development (ATD) is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to the talent development field.

The Fort Worth / Mid-Cities Chapter was founded in 1974. The purpose was to provide a three-county network for professionals in the fields of training and development to further their skills. The Fort Worth / Mid-Cities Chapter incorporated in the state of Texas in May 2000.

In 1987, the chapter hosted the ASTD Southwest Regional Conference. The chapter was one of 51 chapters recognized at the 1994 ASTD International Conference & Exposition for having successfully met the criteria established for the Chapter Assessment and Recognition Tool (CHART). In August 2003, the chapter was named National Chapter of the Month.

The CHART process was replaced by CORE, and then by Chapter Affiliation Requirements (CARE). CARE is a set of performance guidelines designed to help chapters deliver consistent benefits to members. It consists of elements in five key areas: administration, finance, membership, professional development, and communication, which are necessary for running a chapter like a business. The Fort Worth Mid-Cities Chapter typically scores 100% on CARE each year.

The chapter hosted a conference of Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas Chapters in 2009.

The chapter hosted a Regional Leader Conference in February of 2018, with about 25 leaders from all over the Texas area as well as some representatives from National.

In May 2014, the national organization American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) — to better reflect and support the global nature, tremendous diversity, influence, and impact of our profession — changed its name to the Association for Talent Development (ATD).

The Past Presidents of the Fort Worth / Mid-Cities chapter were instrumental in building our chapter into the organization it is today. To view the Past Presidents click here
