2020 Annual Conference

2020 OD Network Annual Conference – Evolving with Impact: The Future is Now

Conference Postponed

Dear Colleagues,

I trust this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well as we all continue to navigate this challenging time. I’m very moved by how much the OD community as has pulled together from all the messages, stories, and sharing of resources I’ve received and seen online. Having said that, we find ourselves continuing to evaluate how to best move forward here at OD Network in a way that continues to serve you, our members, and ensures our organization stays financially healthy going forward. Unfortunately, with the near-term future as unpredictable as it is in these unprecedented times, and after careful consideration, the Board of Trustees has determined the most prudent course of action to take is to postpone the 2020 OD Network Conference currently planned for September.

While it pains us to make this decision, we believe this action necessary at this time since the arc of the pandemic and the post-pandemic recovery period are still largely unknown. We will continue to have outstanding programming for you and each committee is exploring innovative options to keep us connected, learning, and advancing the science and practice of Organization Development. You will receive ongoing notices from us and how together we continue to support the field and promoting OD’s voice in the world.

We want to invite you to join an Open Dialogue zoom conference this Saturday, March 28, at 3:00pm Eastern Time/12:00pm Pacific Time to extend our caring connection to one another even in this time of social distancing.

This was not an easy decision as we know the meaning our conference has for our community. But remember, it is only postponed to a time we can all safely be together, learn from one another, and move forward to furthering the positive impact OD can have in elevating humanity!

Thanks in advance for your understanding, 

Gary Mangiofico
Chair, OD Network Board of Trustees

Practical Learning

Colleague Connections
A dazzling combination of attendees with exponential engagement among brilliant organization development independent consultants, internal practitioners and educators all equally eager to share their wisdom. Attendees rave about the open sharing and truly unique context of the OD Network Annual Conference where collaborations begin and never end.

OD with Impact
The OD Annual Conference is not just the chance to connect and grow your own practice, but to give back! Apply your OD practices and tools for social good as you support local non-profits through Social Impact Day. An attendee favorite event, we invite you for a fun day of learning, networking and giving back as small teams of OD volunteers will work together to assess and provide recommendations to local Orlando non-profits!

Strategic Partnerships
Attendees from both the buyer and supplier side will have more chances than ever to establish new strategic relationships with technology and OD partners throughout the conference experience and in the vast exhibit hall to determine how to implement new learning from the sessions to life--through strategic partnerships and new suppliers of the latest in OD services.

Shaping the Future of OD
Be heard!  This is your chance to contribute with the leaders in the field of organization development. Interactive sessions, ample networking time and even the OD Network Member Meeting is your chance to not only grow your organization development knowledge but also have a voice to shape the future of OD.

What Past Attendees Say About OD Network's Annual Conference

"This conference was a gift! The atmosphere was warm and inviting; I had plenty of time to talk to others and to network; And the sessions were long enough (90 min.) to really examine a topic. I left with new friends and a feeling of gratitude....not something I experience at most conferences!"
"This is the first time I've been to an OD only conference — really enjoyed being with other practitioners. I don't want to go to any other conferences any more....this one is perfect."
"I returned after a long 20 year absence and left excited, and re-affirmed about the future of the profession and the passion of the new members."
