US members regularly ask about member representation, formal means of suggesting change or volunteering, or other features of US “membership organizations”. This does not apply to OBOD, which is a mystery school. Our previous Chief Philip Carr-Gomm described ‘The Order as a Five Dimensional Network‘ without the strictures of modern organizations. He suggests for instance, that members contact anyone in the OBOD HQ organization to volunteer. (Do please be aware that they have the big picture, and know few of us outside of the UK, so may decline your offer. For the types of local volunteer activities available, see the ‘OBOD Local & Overseas’ section below.)
A very approximate ‘organizational’ description of OBOD at this point in time, can be found gathered on the OBOD HQ page on this website. Please also see the OBOD webpage on Who Runs The Order? How Is It Structured? .
OBOD Local & Overseas
Local activities that are offered by member volunteers to the OBOD community are completely independent and autonomous from OBOD Headquarters (including nation-based websites and forums).
These Order related local activities in the United States include Seed Groups and Groves, gatherings, workshops, celebrancy, and social media groups.
