ATD of the Bluegrass

ATD of the Bluegrass is a geographic interest group started in 2015 to make it easy for those live and work in the Bluegrass region to attend regular meetings, but we regularly have guests from the Kentuckiana area.

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month from 5:40 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at a venue in Lexington.

ATD of the Bluegrass is part of ATD Kentuckiana. You will be inspired by your training and development peers as we network, collaborate and share the business of building people! All are welcome!
