Message from the Executive Director
New Communications for the New Year
Every human interaction has, at its center, human communication. It is how we share ideas, create meaning, and connect emotionally with each other.
And the OD Network is no different.
For 2013, our highest priority is improving the value proposition for our members. One of the most visible ways we are working to accomplish this is by expanding our roster of publications, upgrading our website, and streamlining communications to you and other members.
A series of journals and monthly e-newsletters - some new, some improved - will make it easier for you to find the information that is most relevant to you...
