Invitation from CCODN President

With all that is happening in our community and around the world, now is a very exciting time to be a part of the Capital City Organizational Development Network (CCODN) as we journey to expand our skills and learn new approaches to Organizational Development. The purpose of this message is threefold: to inform you of the opportunities planned for you as a member of CCODN, to ask for your support and involvement, and to invite you to our next organizational development planning meeting.

Based on your suggestions and those of other members, we are planning programs and events to provide you with opportunities to network, have fun and learn from other change agents. The program will offer:

  • Dinner meetings with mini-workshops focused on current issues in the field of OD, presented by distinguished colleagues in our region.
  • Bi-monthly informal discussion and experiential sessions on cutting-edge topics, led by members.
  • A special event every year – a workshop presented by a nationally known leader in the OD field.
  • A collaboration of regional university OD and OD-related programs with opportunities to coach, mentor and learn.
  • Sponsorship and speakers from local companies to provide us with actual cases of effective organizational change.
Developing such an attractive program and making CCODN a vital organization will require a commitment from all our members. You can play an important role by volunteering to serve on the CCODN Board, serving on one of our special committees, or sharing the value of the chapter with fellow OD professionals. In fact, we need your immediate help in referring two or three people we can contact to encourage them to join CCODN.

We are in the process of developing our own web site at Please visit the site and offer your ideas and suggestions for making this a useful tool for you in your OD work. Also, we will be holding a grand CCODN development planning meeting on October 24, 2007 at the Franklin University, Moore Auditorium starting at 6:00 PM. Pizza and soft drinks will be served. Please RSVP at We need you, your enthusiasm and your ideas to move our Network forward.

Within the coming week, members of our planning team will follow up with you to see you we can meet your professional needs and to help us identify potential new members. We greatly appreciate your interest and support and look forward to networking with you at future meetings.

Kind Regards,
Marc Cloutier
President, CCODN
