About ETDA Membership

ETDA functions as an intentional forum for owners, principals and senior staff of ETD member organizations.  Its members commit to applying the principles of the Alliances’ three service areas to deepen their relationships, enhance performance and apply tools of consultation to grow as individuals, as practitioners and as providers. 

This environment stimulates a creative tension that is conducive to a dynamic learning community. Members are expected to be able to participate in a wide range of in-depth conversations, and bring a high level of practice and experience to conversations. 

Our intent is to create a network of peers who can hold a high level of conversation about the current and future direction of experiential training and development with corporate clients (for profit, not-for-profit and governmental agencies).

ETDA is committed to the concept that its members are a good fit for each other and the organization, which requires members to be aligned with ETDA's purpose. The current strategy is to limit ETDA alliance membership to 50 members.
