ONA Weekly #484: Your ONA Stories This Year

By on October 25, 2023

Your ONA stories this year

We need your help! For years and years, many of you have sent ONA staff members heartfelt messages about the positive change ONA has catalyzed for your work, career and teams. But we’ve never fully invested in a public channel for these testimonials. Let’s change that!

We’re looking for personal stories about your experience with ONA this year to include in our annual retrospective. Stories can be about a wide range of touchpoints — a resource in a newsletter that improved how you manage projects, an inspiring conversation with another ONA member, attending the annual conference, a fellowship program, a networking meetup or something else. Your contributions will help others better understand why and how to get involved in ONA. Share your story.
