President’s Message

Happy Fall y’all!

October’s panel discussion on leadership coaching in Richmond was an impressive smorgasbord of experience where participants looked at leadership through multiple prisms: the leader’s level of experience, the type of organization, the kinds of models these pros offer up. It was casual, expansive and interactive. If you came, I hope you enjoyed it. 

Speaking of programs, we are seriously mixing it up. With the addition our new Programming co-chair, Amy Gamblin, ACC, she and Jennifer Einolf, ACC, have come up with a compelling variety of programming for next year. Be on the lookout for workshops, book discussions, webinars, socials along with presentations you have enjoyed in the past. We are going to have some fresh venues, gatherings both intimate and large, and new opportunities to get to know each other better. Stay tuned for more on 2018, and our effort to engage more of you with different experiences.

In the meantime, save the date for our semi-annual coaching practicum on December 8. We will push our usual winter social from January to February because we have an incredible workshop on deck for January , 2018. After participating in her session on improvisation at the ICF Converge conference, our programming chairs invited Carrie Spaulding to offer a workshop just for us! It’s January 4 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and logistical details are coming soon. If you can’t make meetings in Richmond, be sure to check out our regular offerings in Roanoke and Hampton Roads.  

I hope to see you soon in person. No tricks here, just treats!
