Our History

We are a regional network affiliated with the National OD Network. The San Diego group was founded in 1982 to provide programs and workshops that contribute to the field of organization development, and to serve the professional needs of OD practitioners in this area. We also hosted two successful National Conferences in San Diego in 1988 and 1999.
