Events

Big Sky ATD hosts nine Learning Events in a calendar year. These events are designed to allow area professions a chance to learn new skills and network with their peers. 
The Chapter does take some time off the months of July, August and December and there are no Learning Events these months.

As a Chapter we are dedicated to helping professions apply ATD's Ten Competencies in their organization and profession. Events are always based on one of these competencies.
 
Below you will find a schedule of upcoming events. Registration for each event will open several weeks before the event. Please see the event details for pricing.
   
Mary Deal is the Programs Director for the Chapter. Any questions about the Events listed can be directed to her via email: mdeal@ebms.com.
