35 years of community building…..
The Chesapeake Bay Organization Development Network (CBODN) emerged from a 1984 national Organization Development Network conference held in the Washington, DC metro area. CBODN founders were energized by their role in hosting the conference and committed to building a network that spans the communities around the Chesapeake Bay area, including Baltimore, Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Northern Virginia. We are honored that 35 years later we can help to carry forward the tradition for the next generation of OD practitioners. CBODN has the advantage of a unique and valuable combination of resources in the DC metro area: premier graduate OD programs whose faculty and students keep their fingers on the pulse of our field; a vast system of federal government agencies and related subcontracting, lobbying and other supporting organizations; headquarters to many corporations, associations and nonprofits; a hub of world-renowned OD consultants; and a global, diverse, highly educated population that benefits from the visibility of being in our nation’s capital. This rich, dynamic milieu has fostered the study, teaching and practice of OD in a spectacular way. CBODN is proud to hold the sole distinction of having twice received the Outstanding Regional OD Network Award from the OD Network.
