ATLiens were shocked a few weeks ago when we learned that 8 people, including 6 Asian womenhad been shot and killed in a mass shooting spree.

ATD Greater Atlanta Member Published in

TD Magazine

Last month, ATD Greater Atlanta members were treated to the first of two CoP sessions on "How to Write for TD Publication." Many may not be aware that one of our own chapter members just recently received the distinction of being published in TD Magazine with his article “Is Your Talent Development Strategy On Target?”

In January of this year (2021), ATD Greater Atlanta Past President, Robb Bingham, was published in the Association for Talent Development’s TD Magazine. In the article, he shares experiences from the work he does with clients as a Learning Strategist; specifically, an introduction to the Converging Solutions’ Target Model which he developed over a decade ago.
