Strengthening the Organization Development Network's relationship with Regional Networks is a key element of the Network's 2013-2015 strategic plan. OD Network can achieve its mission by partnering with Regionals to support education, research, and networking to advance the practice of OD. Moreover, by working together, members will find more value in participating at both the regional and Network levels to support and advance their own work in the OD field.
Based on feedback from the Regionals, the OD Network has set out to implement the following five initiatives this year in support of strengthening these relationships:
-offer a central repository for Regionals to share monthly programming ideas and materials
- provide toolkits for managing Regional infrastructure
- explore web hosting services and content management for Regionals
- highlight at least one Regional in each monthly issue of Network News
- convene Regional Leaders twice each year to support networking, idea sharing, and problem solving
The OD Network is launching its Regionals Committee at the end of January to move forward on each of these initiatives and is looking for at least three more volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering on one or more of these efforts, please contact Marisa Sanchez at email@example.com or the odnetwork at firstname.lastname@example.org.
