Aurora Geis, PCC
It has been a great honor to serve as president of the ICF San Antonio Chapter. Serving along side a highly committed and outstanding board of directors who have worked hard to make 2022 a year of stable growth.
In 2022, we began our focus to solidify our direction under the Lone Star Task Force Committee to potentially merge our chapters. We ended the year to begin with leveraging our operations and resources in programming, accounting, finance with shared resources such as a VA and billing specialist. All of these activities to lighten the administrative burden on our board members who serve us so generously with their time and talent.
Further, we solidified our strategic plan to set out our three strategic priorities:
Goal 1: Develop Strategic Partnerships that Advance Professional Coaching
Goal 2: Add value to the Membership Experience
Goal 3: Steward a financially sound chapter
All of these goals support our global strategy to Coach More, Coach Better and Coach Connect.
On December 7th, 2022 we held an engaging strategic planning meeting hosted by our community partners at Broadway Bank from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. You can review the great work of our facilitators and our next steps here. We are grateful for the work of Jim Hurlburt, JD, Fireside Chat Consulting, Kerri Burchill, PhD, PCC, NuStar Coaching, Scott Hopkins, AVP Broadway Bank and Talent Development Officer and Rebecca Rabel, Director of Strategy, Planning and Transformation.
We invite you to get involved with our committee, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will connect you with our next set of meetings that are planned in January. Our next step will be to share the strategic plan at our Annual Membership Meeting in February on what we have accomplished in each of these three priorities and invite our members to provide feedback on our strategic direction.
Our February meeting will be hybrid for our members to attend in person or virtually. Please be on the look out for a date and help us shape 2023 as another great year of stable growth for your chapter to coach more, better and connect with our community of coaches.
I will close this message by expressing heartfelt thanks to the entire 2022 Board of Directors. Susanna Clavello, Director of Social Responsibility, ChiChi Anyanwu, Director of Development, Melissa Mahan, Secretary and Carissa Gay. Past-President. Each of you made amazing contributions and it has been a pleasure to serve with you. Thank you for all you have done to keep our chapter stable and growing!
The 2023 board is in full swing to recruit new board members, if you are interested in joining our board, we would be thrilled to have you join our growing chapter, fill out the form or send an email to email@example.com with any questions that you may have.
Wishing you and your family a very blessed holiday season!
