The Houston Organization Development Network (HODN) is a vital learning community that develops, supports, and inspires practitioners and enhances the body of knowledge in human organization and systems development.

Members of the Houston Organization Development Network are practitioners representing a range of professional roles in a wide variety of organizations. About half the members are employed by private industry, non-profit organizations, and government agencies. The other half operate their own consulting firms, engage in private practice, and/or teach.

HODN is an affiliate of the national OD Network, the largest U.S.-based organization for OD practitioners. While the majority of ODN members are from the U.S., there are members from more than 90 countries worldwide.
