Greetings Fellow Coaches,

As you prepare for the fall uptick in professional activity, I hope you reserve time on your calendar for our chapter meetings in Richmond, Roanoke and Hampton Roads. We also expect to offer more webinars you can take part in right from your workspace. As a community of Virginia coaches, we have so many great professional development options and chances to connect coming up.

It’s also your last chance to sign up for group transportation to the Converge conference in Washington, D.C., a bargain at only 10 bucks! Register Here. I look forward to seeing my Virginia colleagues among the 1500 conference participants. Registration for this travel bargain will close on August 15.

On a volunteer note, we have had some shifts on the board in the last few months. To address several departures due to professional commitments, we have shifted Libby Dishner back into the Communications Chair role, and Shizuka Modica stepped out of the Secretary role to support Membership. We need to fill in the board spots of Secretary and Program Co-Chair that have opened up as a result. Please contact me directly at if you would be willing to serve and are interested in hearing more about what these roles entail. The fall is a busier time for the board, and we would be grateful for your interest. Even if you are just curious, please let me know.

Finally, I am pleased to formally introduce Lee Wiercinski, our new virtual assistant. Lee has been working behind the scenes over the summer to get our messages out, support the board and get up to speed on bookkeeping needs. She also monitors our gmail account. If you have administrative or other questions, please reach out to, and she will respond or get you to the right resource. Happy Summer everyone!
