President’s Message

Greetings Members!

We are off to a great start this year!

On October 16, our first-ever certificate program in Organization Development Fundamentals, presented by OODN and Cascade Employers Association, begins. The people who have registered so far have strong and diverse backgrounds. It should be an exciting time! There are still a few seats left. For more information and to register, go here. We also have a couple of scholarships left for members with limited funds. Let me know if you would like one of these scholarships to go to you.

We kicked off programming this year with perennial favorite XPLANE. Next up, on October 9, veteran OD consultant Sabine Amend, who has worked with clients in over 50 countries, will share with you a dignity-based approach and best practices highly valuable for both internal and external OD practitioners. Register here.

Our monthly Mastermind group for internal and external OD professionals has gathered steam. We now have a regular meeting date, time and place. Date: third Thursday of the month. Time: 5:30-7:00. Location: downtown (near Pioneer Square) at our generous hosts, the law firm Lewis Brisbois. Register here.

Last but not least: Oregon ODN has a new LinkedIn presence! We've corralled our old groups and pages into one central location and would love to have you join us in our new home. Click here to follow us for the latest updates and to join the conversation.

Best regards,

ODN Oregon
