President's Message

Hello Coaches & Friends,

Spring is near and we have many exciting events coming up!

We have enjoyed member participation in all of our chapter meetings, live and virtual, as well as Coach Circles and Coach Cafes throughout the year. Our collegial engagement and community continue to grow, and we are fortunate to have so many talented coaches in our community! 

Our next in-person meeting will be March 29th at 8:30am at the Courtyard Marriott in Shelton. We are featuring one of our members, Karen Sands, MCC, who will lead us in an enriching program: Trailblazing Coaches, What Keeps You Awake At Night? Karen has a special message and request for you to respond to prepare for the event. Karen Sands pre-meeting question

FAQs About Chairing a Board Committee

The Will I work alone or have support?
Some committees have co-chairs. Others are led by one person, but in either case, you can expect support from committee members and/or others who’ve been in your role before.

What if I’m interested but have no experience?
While experience is great, a strong interest in, and curiosity about a specific position can take you far – especially, knowing that you’ll get great mentoring from prior chairs and committee members.

What sort of time commitment is called for?
You can expect to invest about 2-5 hours a month, depending on your committee’s purpose and job. The amount of time you put in can decrease if you are working with a co-chair or committee members. 

How long is a term on the Board?
A Board term is two years, starting in July, which is our fiscal year. 

How often and where do we meet? 
The board meets once a month, on the last Friday of the month. We meet in-person 6 times a year, and virtually, 5 times a year. Each board meeting follows either an in-person program or a webinar.
