I want to acknowledge and thank outgoing Board Member SueAnn Freeman as she steps down from her role as Director-at-Large to attend to family needs. I want to acknowledge and thank SueAnn for her contributions, including the phone calls she made during our member renewal campaign. Our renewal rate is higher than average for Chapters per ICF Global, and I believe SueAnn’s efforts helped us to achieve that. Thank you, SueAnn!
I have the privilege of leading a team of brilliant coaches who are helping me become a better leader while providing their talents in support of our coaching community. It takes a significant commitment and a desire to contribute in order to make an all-volunteer organization such as ours work, and I want to extend a well-deserved THANK YOU to our amazing Board Members:
Coleen Chandler, Dolores Davis, Diane Garga, Leann Freeman, Jim Geiger, Melna Jones, Dawn Karner, and Michele Tevis.
Our ICF Sacramento leadership team met for a mid-year retreat on July 15th to build relationships, share learning and co-create where we will go next. I am delighted with the outcomes we achieved from this meeting. We built stronger bonds, shared struggles, made requests, learned from each other, agreed to next actions, celebrated our successes, and learned from failure, too! Here are some things that came out of our meeting:
- We will hold at least one in-person Board meeting per quarter to build and maintain a feeling of “team”.
- We are providing additional training and support to Board members to support them in their roles.
- We will implement new communication practices to improve connection, clarity and support us with positive accountability.
We learned a lot from each other in that meeting, and we are actively creating a better future for our Team and the Chapter. YOU could be a part of this awesome team, too! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how you can volunteer your talents in service of our profession.
