Virtual Book Club

We are pleased to announce our partnership with the Metro DC ATD for the Virtual Book Club!

A member-selected book will be read and discussed online every two months. Discussions will be conducted over LinkedIn.

The book club is free to our chapter members. Please note that registration goes through the DC ATD Chapter, but our members are included in the program. There is an annual fee of $25.00 for non-members.

Please note that after completing your registration on the Metro DC-ATD website you will receive a confirmation email that will include a link to the PBC Guru website. You must complete your registration on the PBC Guru website in order to share information about your book interests and receive email updates about book selection and discussions. Emails about the book club will come from PBC Guru.
