There are so many ways to get involved!

You can be involved with the Golden Gate Chapter as a CHAPTER MEMBER as well as a COMMUNITY SUPPORTER.  Here are some ways you can support the Golden Gate Chapter:

Become a Chapter Member

The best way to support our chapter is to become a member. Our members are what help us to subsidize the events and provide the technology to keep our community connected. Click on the  Membership page  for all you might want to know

ChIP In!

When you purchase anything from ATD National – a book, a conference, a certificate program , an ATD Membership – PLEASE use the Golden Gate Chapter Incentive Program (ChIP) number #8003 . By using our Chapter Incentive Program (CHiP) number, ATD National shares back a percentage of your purchase with us, at no cost to you.  To use the ChIP code, on the ATD National cart checkout page, when you go to “Review Your Order,” you’ll see the option “I have a ChIP (Chapter Incentive Program) Code” be sure to enter 8003


Even operating virtually, as we have been since the Spring of 2020, costs money! We have fees to pay, records to file, licenses to keep active, etc. We also try to offer as many free options as possible so that even in hard times, our members stay connected and maintain their professional networks. With many people in our community between jobs and not able to afford a Chapter membership, donations can help us support our community during these challenging times. If you are in a position to help, please consider giving a little extra to support others who are going through hardships and cannot. Let us know on the Donation Page
