AnnuaL 2012 Program Year Planning Session
The DFW OD Network will be having their annual Program Planning Meeting. This is an Open Space Methodology where everyone is invited to bring cutting edge program ideas for 2012. We then will facilitate a process of grouping the ideas into program themes and then prioritizing the list of themes and suggesting possible presenters or teams of presenters to plan and implement these program ideas. This is a great opportunity to take an active role in the association’s Program Calendar for the year and have lot’s of fun doing it.
