MNODN has been in existence for more than a quarter of a century, and we have always focused on one thing - helping those who help organizations grow, develop, and change, in developing their own capabilities. We’re excited to enter the 2013-2014 membership year with you!

We also appreciate your participation in committee and volunteer opportunities, recommending speakers, events and opportunities of interest to our members, contributing to our online community, forming or supporting a Community of Practice in your area of interest, reaching out to other members to share expertise, insights and collaborate, sharing your accomplishments and work (published book, written article, new survey instrument developed, & amazing client story, etc.), supporting students and new practitioners in OD and encouraging others to join and increase the richness of our network.

Thank you for your support of MNODN. We’re excited to be growing, developing and changing with you!
