My name is Beth Ann Miller and I am the new editor of the IAC VOICE. I am honored to become a part of your community at this exciting time: today marks the 10th anniversary of the IAC! What a time to celebrate your many achievements and continued growth and success. I personally cannot wait to become more acquainted with many of you wonderful coaches.
In the spirit of getting to know each other, I’ll share a little about myself: I am native New Englander and hold a B.A. in Creative Writing. While I am not a coach myself, much of my life has been influenced by the power of coaching. As a writer of both fiction and non-fiction, I have found that it is essential to acknowledge characters for their strengths, weaknesses, and everything in between. I find this paralleled in coaching, within the pursuit of understanding, acceptance, and growth. Honoring this “humanness” sparked my appreciation for the world of coaching.
This month we have much to look forward to. President Susan Meyer takes a walk down memory lane, commemorating past presidents and accomplishments; we learn about lifetime memberships, new fees, and the ins and outs of coaching contracts; as well as several other “nuggets” of wisdom and insight from valued members of the IAC community. See below for a more detailed outline of what this issue of the VOICE has to offer.
There has been a bit of a learning curve this month as I dove into this exciting world, and I want to thank everyone who has supported me in this transition. I understand there are some big shoes to fill and would like to acknowledge Linda for her dedication and hard work over the years. I am looking forward to the future of the VOICE: be prepared for style and content changes as we kick off our next decade of greatness!
