Charleston, WV, July 2015—The West Virginia Chapter of the Association for Talent Development (ATD), was named an ATD Chapter of the Month (COM) for July, 2015. The COM is national recognition for ATD local chapters that have demonstrated strength, growth, and innovation in managing their chapter.

Richard Fletcher, chair of ATD's Chapter Recognition Committee, which awards the Chapter of the Month honor, said, "This prestigious award recognizes the West Virginia Chapter for demonstrating innovative and unique approaches in providing great value to their members and professionals in the community, including professional development, networking, and leading information about trends in the talent development industry. The West Virginia Chapter is a leading example for serving members and other ATD chapter leaders with opportunities to learn and grow from each other. We are pleased to recognize the chapter with ATD's Chapter of the Month award," Fletcher said.
