The Northwest Chicago Professional Development Network has been meeting every other month since 2007.
We explore topics centering on consulting issues inside organizations across the spectrum of Organizational Development, Human Resources, and Training and Development. We provide opportunities to learn from experienced professionals in the field as well as take an experiential and action 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 local PDNs, we are not affiliated with the ODNetwork, ATD or any of their regional organizations.'
While we charge a nominal fee to attend our meetings, we are an all-volunteer organization. Fees go to cover meeting and speaker expenses.
We are currently meeting at our host location in the Schneider Electric office at 200 N. Martingale Road, Schaumburg, IL 60173.
There are several other regional Learning & Organizational Development Networks that meet in the Chicago area you may wish to check out.
