GRATD Special Interest Groups

In an effort to offer our local members more opportunities for informal knowledge sharing and peer networking, the Greater Richmond chapter of the ATD hosts monthly Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

SIGs center around specific areas of focus in talent development fields.



The only requirement for joining a SIG is having a chapter membership! Guests can participate in one (1) SIG meeting per calendar year when invited by a current member. Become a GRATD member today and email for more information!


  • Each SIG determines their own meeting schedule and location based on participant input.
  • Meetings discuss a pre-determined topic and are facilitated by a member. Discussions include research related to the topic, the experiences of the participants, and questions that come up.
  • SIG meeting dates and topics are promoted on the GRATD website, emails, and LinkedIn page.

Become a SIG Leader

Is a SIG you're interested in not currently meeting? Do you have another topic you're passionate about? Consider volunteering to lead a SIG!

SIG leaders are volunteers who commit five to seven (5-7) hours each month to monitoring and facilitating a SIG for fellow GRATD members who share in their interest.

***New in 2023*** SIG leaders receive a complimentary GRATD membership for their service. Email for more information on the benefits of leading a SIG for our chapter. Duties include the following:

    • Setting the goals and objectives for the group
    • Coordinating an agenda
    • Negotiating a meeting place
    • Sending out meeting notices
    • Facilitating a meeting
    • Engaging SIG group members
    • Communicating with the VP of Programming
    • And, most importantly, assisting the Special Interest Group in meeting its goals and objectives

Examples of SIG topics:
