The Vancouver Island Coaches Association was very pleased to make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation from the proceeds from our International Coaching Week events (ICW 2012) that were held earlier this year. As February is Heart Month, the theme from ICW 2012 was “What is at the Heart of Coaching” and thus, in our Chapter’s spirit of being in service, the ICW planning committee suggested that the proceeds go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Doug Lawson, former VI Coaches Director of Marketing, presented the donation to Jeremy Loveday, Community Development Coordinator, Vancouver Island/Powell River/Gulf Islands for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
International Coaching Week 2013 will be in May and VI Coaches is inviting participation from our members. If you are interested in being part of the planning committee, it’s not too late. Please contact Annette Siewertsen, Vice President and ICW 2013 lead, for more details. Last year’s ICW was such a success and we hope to build on that with this year’s theme of “Bridging Communities”.
