The Southeastern Virginia Chapter, a non-profit association affiliate of the Association of Talent Development programs are intended to provide members with professional education related to the field of Talent Development and to provide continuing education credits for certified members.

We appreciate your interest in submitting a proposal to share your experience and expertise.

Program Information

All monthly professional development must be in alignment with the ATD Competency Model

The preference is that all professional development programs are in a workshop style or highly interactive. 

All programs are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 6pm-8pm and are for one (1 1/4) hour. 

No programs are scheduled for July and December.  Please ensure the desired presentation date is noted on the form.

All proposals must be submitted 7 weeks prior to the month the speaker is requesting to present.

This is necessary for the proper promotion and venue confirmation. We request that all presentations are hands-on and have immediate take-aways that any average professional will be able to immediately use.

It is our desire that presentations are based on the ATD Competency Model as shown at the end of this form: The program will be discussed and reviewed by the Director of Programs prior to formal submission if desired to ensure proper content and focus.

Program Confirmation
