OD Cooperative Professional Development Network
The OD Cooperative Professional Development Network (formerly the Northwest Chicago PDN) has been meeting six times a year since 2007.
We explore topics centering on consulting issues inside organizations across the spectrum of Organizational Development, Human Resources, and Training and Development. We provide opportunities to learn from experienced professionals in the field as well as take an experiential and action learning approach in our meetings.
While this 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.
While we collaborate with other local PDNs, we are not affiliated with the ODNetwork, ATD or any of their regional organizations.'
We charge a nominal fee to attend our meetings, though we are an all-volunteer organization and fees go to cover meeting and speaker expenses.Meetings typically take place on the second Friday of January, March, May, June, September and November from 8:30 – 10:00 A.M. United States Central Time and include small group and interactive exercises to provide opportunities for learning and networking. Please check our website for the most current dates and times.
Location: Our group is an international online community. All of our meetings take place via webinar.
