The OD Cooperative Professional Development Network (formerly the Northwest Chicago PDN) has been meeting six times a year since 2007.
We explore topics centered on consulting issues inside organizations across the spectrum of Organization Development, Human Resources and Learning and Development. We provide opportunities to learn from experienced professionals in the field, taking an interactive, experiential and action learning approach in our meetings.
While our group is primarily focused on internal consultants, all are welcome with the understanding that we strive for a forum free of direct marketing or overt networking from those in job transition.
We collaborate with other professional development networks, yet we are not affiliated with any international or regional organizations.
We charge a nominal fee to attend our meetings, though we are an all-volunteer organization and fees go to cover administrative meeting and speaker expenses.
Meetings typically take place on the second Friday of January, March, May, June, September and November from 8:30am to 10:00am United States Central Time and include small group and interactive exercises to provide opportunities for professional growth and networking.
Location: Our group is an international online community where all of our meetings take place virtually.
