SIGs & GIGs


The Central PA Chapter of ATD serves a geographically dispersed membership. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Geographic Interest Groups (GIGs) provide opportunities for our members to interact based on interests and locale. 

Groups meet on their own time schedule at a location convenient to members in that geographic area.  The purpose of the group is to provide an opportunity for learning professionals to network and share knowledge.

We encourage your participation in these groups, and are prepared to assist those who are interested in establishing a new SIG or GIG.

Visit the event calendar to register for specific meeting dates or contact the SIG or GIG coordinator directly. 

If you are interested in starting a new SIG or GIG, please contact the VP of Programs.
