Southeastern Virginia Chapter (SEVA)
The Southeastern Virginia Chapter of ATD is the primary professional organization for workplace learning and performance professionals in Hampton Roads. Formed in 1975, it's proud to be one of the oldest ATD regional chapters. SEVA ATD today is stronger than ever with a committed board and supportive members together creating new ways to support the talent development profession by providing trusted content in the form of books, events, and educational programs.
Our events take place on both the Peninsula as well as the Southside of Hampton Roads and offer evening events, mixers, and workshops.
As the field of talent development cuts across multiple industries, SEVA ATD strives to partner with other local professional organizations (such as ISPI, SHRM, and NSA) to build upon common areas of expertise.
We exist to provide services to members and the professional community related to talent development, focusing on networking, professional development, and career enhancement.
