President’s Message

Greetings Members!

I hope 2020 is off to a great start for you.

Chapter Newsletter: Under the editorial leadership of board member Glen Fahs, we will be launching our first chapter newsletter in March. If you have something to contribute, please email Glen (address below.)

Programming: Coming up next week, Wednesday, February 12th, we will have an exciting event at Daimler. Sought-after international speaker and former Futurist and Chief Evangelist at Intel Corporation, Steve Brown, will kick off a lively roundtable discussion of how trends shaping the future of work will impact our OD, HR, and training and development roles both inside organizations and as consultants. You can learn more about Steve here.

Mastermind Meeting: Our monthly mastermind meetings that began last spring, continue. To attend, participate and learn, you don’t have to be a “mastermind;” interest in the OD field suffices. Register for the Feb. 20 meeting here.

Board Elections: We will soon be starting the selection process for next year’s board of directors. If you have an interest in either serving on the board or on the Nominations Committee, please let me know. 

CCP: OODN’s Community Consulting Project is getting ready to launch its spring round of projects. For more information, contact Dan Vetter,

OD Fundamentals Certificate Program: The Organization Development Fundamentals Certificate Program, presented by Oregon ODN and Cascade Employers Association last fall, will be held again next fall. Please let me know if you have questions about it.

ODN Strategic Initiative:The Process Design Group, led by Helen Spector, is continuing its work charting the future of Oregon ODN. For more information or to participate in this work, please contact Helen (address below.)
