    Each year, the American Society of Training and Development provides chapters with 18 requirements and goals that local chapters must meet.  This year, ASTD Baton Rouge was recognized for achieving 100% CORE compliance by successfully meeting all 18 requirements!  In addition, ASTD also recognized our chapter as a Chapter Membership STAR for successfully achieving 30 - 50% joint membership in both local and national organizations.

    Thank you to all of our members and our chapter leaders for helping our chapter achieve this success!
