The OD Cooperative is rebranding from the Northwest Chicago Professional Development Network in 2021 and will continue meeting every other month, but now we'll only be meeting virtually. Our meeting time will change permanently to 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM Central Time / 12:30 - 2:00 PM Eastern Time.
We explore topics centered on consulting issues inside organizations across the spectrum of Organizational Development, Learning and Development and Human Resources. We provide opportunities to learn from experienced professionals in the field as well as take an interactive, experiential 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 organizations, we are not affiliated with any particular organization.
We charge a nominal fee to attend our meetings and use volunteers from Chicago, IL and Roanoke, VA to plan, organize and facilitate our virtual events. Fees go to cover expenses to maintain our email list, send out meeting announcements, collect payment and run our virtual meetings.
