SSU OD Alumni Survey

One of the tangible actions that came out of the Future Search Conference in January 2012 was to create a vibrant, ongoing alumni network/community. The first step is to understand what is important to you, the alumni, in creating and maintaining a vibrant SSU Organization Development (OD) alumni community. We know your time is valuable and it’s challenging to stay involved, but we also know that you care about the OD program and its future.

We would appreciate it if you would take the time to complete this survey by June 15, 2012.
