 Program Planning for 2016!

Member needs and interests drive DFW OD Network programs.  Accordingly, our November Meeting is a facilitated event designed to answer the question: “What programs do our members most want for our 2016 DFW OD Network Monthly Meetings?”

Everyone will be able to recommend their ideas and help choose the topics for our 2016 programs.  What topics are most important, meaningful and relevant for you?  Here are some questions to stimulate your thinking:

  • What topic in the OD field are you most interested in?
  • What information do you need to know in order to stay current?
  • What is a strategic issue that you would like to learn more about?
  • What is a major challenge that you are facing in your work?
  • What is a new program idea that you would like our chapter to try?
  • What topic would help you succeed in your work?

We have been blessed with interesting and informative monthly programs during 2015!  Let’s make our 2016 programs even better!  Bring your ideas, energy and a spirit of collaboration!  Consume copious amounts of pizza and non-alcoholic beverages!  Network with your professional colleagues!  Learn more about what’s going on in our profession!  Learn several facilitation methods and techniques!
