Board Member Requirements

Board Members are not required to be employed in the field of Organization Development; roles may require skills, talents and perspectives outside the field of OD. However, current membership with CBODN is required to serve on the Board.

Time Commitment will vary pending activities of the role, but is estimated around 2-3 per week for most positions. There are also:
• Monthly Board meeting (2.5 hrs), usually the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 6:30-9:00pm
• Two Board retreats per year: the first is in July or August, half to full weekend day to onboard new Board members and set the stage for the upcoming Board year. The second is in January or February and is an overnight nearby (Sat morning to Sun afternoon) to tackle major strategic and tactical priorities.
• Last, the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) comprised of the President, Vice President, Past President, VP Finance/Business Operations, and VP Community Engagement meet as needed to discuss strategic priorities. Typically this group meets once a month prior to the monthly Board meeting for 1-2 hours.

Board Terms require a minimum of 2 years with the exception of Vice President which requires a 3 year commitment (VP→President→Past President). On average Board members choose to serve between 2-4 years.

The Board is responsible for carrying forth the 30 year history and legacy of CBODN, while seeking to continually build cohesion and foster knowledge sharing within the community.

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 focus our offerings around four strategic goals:
Learn: Providing learning experiences that combine cutting edge theory and practical application;
Experiment: Allowing the use of newly learned skills and building knowledge through engagement;
Connect: Building professional networks and relationships;
Source: Informing and education via online tools, resources, and job opportunities.
