I have to say that my work with the IAC has been a much-needed retreat this month. I am caught up in a whirlwind of moving to a new apartment, prepping to teach my first college-level course this fall, as well as getting everything ready to begin my second year of graduate school. But sitting down to read the wonderful words and thoughts of your fellow coaches is both calming and inspiring. I am so grateful to be a part of a community that is always expanding in positive directions and digging up the best methods to support each other. Bravo to all of you!
This month we’re jam-packed with updates about the Board and Licensing Committee, a tribute to a beloved coach, metaphors in the Masteries, wisdom from a former IAC president, and “throwback” articles. Please enjoy!
Is there something you’d like to see in the VOICE? A particular subject you’d like us to address? Please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with comments, questions, event notices, or article contributions. We are always looking for new perspectives and look forward to hearing from you.
