The Board of Directors of CBODN is comprised of passionate volunteers dedicated to building community and working together to implement the vision and goals of the Network.

Each Board seeks to build on the successes of previous Boards in developing CBODN as the central hub of our DC Metro area OD community. We do this by providing members with current online resources as well as programs and events from which to engage with one another, develop knowledge and skills, share expertise and talent, and contribute to our rich and wonderful community.
