WORKSHOP PRESENTATIONS AT THE ATD TULSA MONTHLY PROGRAMS
Monthly chapter programs are typically scheduled for the third Friday of each month and the usual in-person location is the OSU-Tulsa BS Roberts Room, 700 N Greenwood Ave, Tulsa, OK 74106. During the current pandemic, events will be virtual until further notice. In 2021, the dates and locations may vary for some meetings to better accommodate members and guests who can't make it to the normal meeting times and locations.

Workshop speakers must be willing to provide their services pro bono publico (without expectation of payment) for the good of developing talent development professionals and in support of the goals and objectives of ATD Tulsa.
