From the Editor

Washington MonumentThe
official start of summer has meant two things to us New Englanders: humidity
and severe thunderstorms! Additionally, for me, summer has been a whirlwind
of work and travel, including a trip to Washington, D.C. Visiting the many monuments
and memorials was an overwhelming and beautiful experience. In a place that
is dedicated to honoring the past, it is also a thriving community that is just
as focused on moving forward.

This sentiment of appreciating the past, present, and future, is a strong thread
in our articles this week. Our wonderful contributors discuss “compassion
fatigue” within coaching, archiving client records, while taking glimpses
into the future of coaching and revisiting the IAC’s foundation and past
methods. There is much to look forward to!

I’d like to send out a big thank you to Elizabeth Nofziger who volunteers
her time each month to help with the VOICE; she is an important asset to the
team and we very much appreciate her time!

Please feel free to contact us at
with comments, questions, event notices, or article contributions. I hope you
enjoy the month of July, no matter the weather.
