We can do more together
If we don’t work together, we will lose our right to practice
We need each other to enjoy better careers
Relationships bring us more collective wisdom
Every OD has something to offer the profession
Legacy and experience are important
We are a powerful voice and we are the only voice for the profession in AZ
