From the Editor

After some technical challenges
that created a long interruption in our ability to
communicate with our members, the IAC VOICE is back! 

Hello, I’m Barbra Sundquist, IAC-CC.  I’m honored to
be the new Editor of the IAC Voice. 

With this issue, our IAC
President, Natalie Tucker Miller
, IAC-CC brings you
up-to-date with some key happenings at the IAC.  Chief among
those activities has been a complete overhaul of our
database and other computer systems. 

Also included in this issue is a
list of all the coaches who have achieved their IAC-CC (IAC
Certified Coach) credential to date. We salute these
masterful coaches!

Starting in May, you can expect
to receive a monthly issue of the IAC VOICE in your email
box.  My first priority as Editor is to answer all the
questions that might be on your mind, such as: 

  • What does the IAC offer me?

  • How do I get certified by the

  • What is the difference in the
    credentialing from the various coaching associations?

  • I heard about new criteria for
    getting certified by the IAC. When will this happen?

We know that getting the IAC-CC
credential is a high priority for many of our members.  To
help you along the way, our Certifying Team, which
currently consists of: 

  • Sali Taylor, IAC-CC

  • Nina East, IAC-CC

  • Karen Van Cleve, IAC-CC

  • Barbra Sundquist, IAC-CC

will write a monthly column
called “Certifier’s Corner”.  The column will provide
practical guidance regarding mysterious issues such as “what
exactly are the Certifiers looking for in Step 2 tapes,
anyhow?” and “how can I relax and “coach naturally” when I
know I’m being tested?”

You can also look forward to
connecting with the international coaching community through
feature articles in our “Another Voice” column.  And
Janice Hunter
, a coach from Scotland, will contribute a
regular column called "Coaching Moments" which takes a
thoughtful, and sometimes lighthearted, look at how coaching
can be interwoven into our daily lives. 

The IAC Voice is the main way we
communicate with our nearly 10,000 members.  I am eager to
hear from you, particularly if you have a comment about
anything you’ve read in the VOICE (your Letter to the Editor
may be edited and printed in the Voice).  And if you
know of a coach or coaching organization that is doing
something innovative to bring coaching to the world, please
let me know!  

Drop me a line at

You can expect to receive your
next issue of the VOICE in the first week of May.

Until then, enjoy!
