Contract Trainers Association (shared by Karl Albrecht-

 Contract Trainers Association has been just launched

 What is it ?
“… a community of practice that helps self-employed trainers grow their businesses by providing professional development, access to advice and resources, business referrals, and advocacy of high standards that benefit both trainers and their clients.”

It’s a full-fledged trade association, and it’s specifically focused on the interests of “externals.” I’ve long felt that the big associations like ASTD, SHRM, and others don’t cater well to self-employed trainers / consultants / coaches, and in fact often treat them as outsiders or second-class citizens. Specifically, they provide little help in the one thing that preoccupies much of the attention of contract trainers, which is finding business.
