Hello friends,

We're pleased to announce that St. Patrick's Day and March Madness aren't the only exciting events on the horizon. That's right, registration is now open for theOD Network 2014 Annual Conferenceand we're so ecstatic that we're comparing it to other huge events already. This year's conference will be held at the Loews Philadelphia and its theme — Recognize. Transform.

As OD Network's Annual Conference Co-Chairs, we’ve been inspired by the notion of transformation, too, and are working together to ensure the conference features new session formats that will introduce more variety, engagement and connection in our 50th anniversary year.

In addition to the stimulating conference tracks we have planned, we’re thrilled to announce for the first time to our members the 2014 keynote speakers:

Get Involved: Coaching or Mentoring Programs

The process for getting involved in coaching and mentoring with OD Network is simple, with the most important step being to update your personal profile and identify your area of interest (i.e., offering or receiving coaching/mentoring). Once that’s done, people can find you in the member database and reach out if there is a mutual fit. Further, you can proactively search our member database to identify other members that match your specifications. All that is left to do is initiate a contracting conversation and design a program that makes the most sense for both of you.
