ASTD New York (ASTD NY) is the local chapter of the American Society of Training & Development – the leading association of workplace learning and performance professionals in the world. Our members reflect the vibrant nature of the great city of New York and come from all types of organizations – multinational corporations, medium and small-sized businesses, nonprofit organizations, government, academia, consulting firms, and product and service suppliers.

Our Mission

To provide leadership to individuals, organizations, and society in achieving work-related competence, performance and fulfillment.

Why This Is Important

Smart leaders know that people are the key to driving an organization’s competitive edge. People are the chief asset in a fast-paced world, where knowledge and service are the currency of success. The best strategic solution to meet these challenges is workplace learning, which unleashes talent and leads people to peak performance.

What We Do

We bring people together through:

  • Monthly Events — feature notable speakers and hot topics for our profession.
  • Special Interest Groups and Committees – offer further exploration of specific interests and the opportunity to connect with other professionals
  • Free Networking Events – bring learning professionals, experts and practitioners together in relaxed settings to network and socialize.

We provide professional development opportunities for workplace learning professionals through:

  • Volunteer opportunities – by partnering with business and community we offer members the opportunity to develop their skills, grow their network, and “give back” to the community.
  • Professional Development Workshops – explore specific issues and practices in more depth.

We provide resources to professionals through:

  • www.astdny.org – provides information and resources to the NY Metro area about the learning profession.
  • LEARN: the quarterly ASTD NY Newsletter – provides news, information and resources to those in our field. Also provides members the opportunity to publish original articles of interest to the profession.
  • Research Projects – by partnering with academic institutions and business we offer insight into emerging trends and issues affecting workplace learning and performance.

We are the voice of our profession in the NY Metro Area through:

  • Alliances with companies, community organizations, and educational institutions throughout the city.

We recognize and celebrate the achievements of those in workplace learning and performance through:

  • Annual Celebrations and Awards – bring people together to celebrate and recognize the achievements of outstanding professionals in our field.
