I worked at Association for Talent Development part-time (More than 10 years)
Incredible networking organization; dedication, energy and commitment of volunteers is contagious and inspiring. Good practical information and learning for training practitioners of all levels.
It seems the direction of the local chapter changes every time the board changes (which is every year). Offerings for emerging trends and high level practitioners is limited at times; however it is still a great resource and a great organization to volunteer for!
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Association for Talent Development (Alexandria, VA) in June 2015.
I was contacted for an in person interview with 3 different managers in the department, (met with all of them individually). About two weeks passed and I was contacted by HR for a final interview.
