Dear Members and supporters of the IODA Community,
This year 2018 is coming to a close, and in this traditional time of celebration and renewal, it is also a time to reflect on the past year. For many 2018 has been a mix of successes and turbulent times.
The IODA conference in Istanbul in Turkey was an opportunity to explore how we find balance as individuals, practitioners, for our clients and even as the global system.
Thanks again to Gözde and the Turkish team for creating this special experience for our community.
During 2018 the IODA team also focused on increasing connections within our community, including through an active social media presence, and the “Tapestry” stories.
If you haven’t done so yet, we invite you to connect with IODA via Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. By following us, share and comment you will make IODA even more vibrant.
We wish 2019 will bring joy and new hope and a global strengthening of the values that are so important to IODA – connection, inclusion and the celebration of diversity.
IODA’s annual conference in Chile will be a wonderful opportunity to explore these values. More information about this global gathering will be available very soon. Please stay tuned.
We hope you will be able to join us and also take some time to experience what the beautiful country Chile has to offer.
With love and hope,
The IODA Executive Committee
Michelle, Suzanne, Claudia, Mohan, Melissa and Silke
