Volunteer! International Coaching Week Committee Seeks Members

2013 International Coaching Week
Bridging Communities

Sharing the Best of What We Have to Give

Vancouver Island Coaches Association is inviting members to participate on a volunteer committee to work on activities for our upcoming 2013 ICF International Coaching Week.

Our

theme this year is “Bridging Communities.” The presence of a bridge implies a barrier to be crossed, a gap

to be overcome. We would like to reach out to our community and share the best of what we have to give to those who wouldn’t otherwise have a means to coaching…in other words removing the barrier or gap.

If you are interested in participating on this committee please contact Annette Siewertsen, Vice President, VI Coaches by November 30, 2012.

I look forward to bridging communities together.

ICF Changes Date for International Coaching Week 2013
