Message from the OD Network Chair and Executive Director

Thanks for the Memories

 

In 2014, OD Network introduced a number of new benefits for our members. We are so pleased to have received excellent feedback on these benefits, so rather than us doing all the talking, we wanted to share some of this amazing feedback from YOU:

 

Loved the mixed approach to the [Annual] Conference and hope to see more of that. For a conference looking back at early OD and forward to the future of OD, it seemed so appropriate to mix different approaches representing all eras.

 

The [new conference mobile] app is FANTASTIC!

 

Please start a 2nd (and 3rd!) Internals Community of Practice cohort - very valuable!

 

I am new to ODN, but based on this one [webinar] I'm even more excited ... than before!

 

In this year's member survey, we asked respondents to give us three words to describe OD Network. Here is what you said:

 

Current.Relevant.Approachable.Connected.Thoughtful. Committed.Progressive.Engaging.Professional.

 

Both of us are completing our service to the Network at the end of this year: Marisa as her board term ends and Laura as she has been tapped to serve in additional strategic capacities at SmithBucklin. It was an honor and privilege to serve the OD Network community in 2014 and to be a part of the 50th anniversary, celebrating amazing milestones and contributors to the field. We cannot wait to see how OD continues to evolve and have great impact on the world in the next 50 years.

 

It has been a pleasure to work with the board, staff, committees, partners, sponsors, and, most importantly, the members of the OD Network. We welcome Gail McCauley as OD Network's new Executive Director and Matt Minahan as the Chair of the Board of Trustees for 2015. You will hear much more about Gail, Matt, and next year's strategic goals in the January Network News.

 

From both of us, thank you for the memories!

 

We hope you have a happy holiday season,

 

Marisa Sanchez, Ph.D.

Laura J. Rudzinski
