What’s it mean to become a member?
The workplace learning and performance professionals who come to ATD Mississippi all join for different reasons. Some come to network and enjoy the camaraderie of others who share the rewards and challenges of our field. Others come because ATD Mississippi presents a warm and friendly environment in which to learn and share knowledge. Many come because they recognize that truly being a professional means staying abreast and attune to this ever-changing industry.
