A Note from Your 2019 President,
Rachelle Huddleston, PCC
Congratulations and Thank You!
I want to say a BIG thank you to over 50 fellow coaches, guests and sponsors who joined forces to plan, carry out and celebrate together at Heartland’s first Annual Coach Celebration. Our presenter, Barbara Luther, MCC talked about finding the sparkle when it isn’t there, and as one member shared with me after the event, “I feel resparkleized”. We feel it, too. As coaches we know that pursuing a large goal can re-energize us. And speaking of energizing…
It was an honor to announce Dr. Gina Marx, PCC as the first President’s Award recipient. I’d like to share a few of the ways she has energized the chapter:
Started the ICF Heartland chapter newsletter and remains its editor
Created and facilitates Coaching Over Coffee with live coaching and reflective feedback
Worked diligently to launch the Heartland Speakers Bureau on Coaching week
Became Regional Chair of the 2020 Midwest Regional Conference
Chaired the Annual Celebration Event
L to R: Stacy Feil, Tim Link, Gina Marx, Rachelle Huddleston
With deep appreciation, I can report that Gina hasn’t worked alone - all of Heartland’s board members, and several of our members at large, have invested significant time and energy to see that Heartland continues to grow and thrive. Which leads me to our next award winners…
Congratulations to Tim Link, MCC, who is our Outstanding Member of the Year and Stacy Fiel (soon to be PCC), who won our Future Leader Award! Their investments are strengthening the Heartland.
Tim Link was the first coach to volunteer for Coaching Over Coffee, served on the Membership Committee this year, was the first presenter for our new Speaker’s Bureau, and is presenting pro bono for our November program!
Stacy Feil, fresh from Pennsylvania, hit the ground running in Kansas and coached in our Coaching Over Coffee, served on the Membership and also the Marketing Committees, presented for our Speaker’s Bureau, and is not working on revamping our website!
We look forward to the excitement of our Annual event next year, and invite you to be a part of making 2020 a success with ICF Heartland.
To the stars,
