Inspirational Relationships Continue to Change the ACO
We, on the ADHD Coaches Organization (ACO) board, have been reveling in the success of the conference and the joy we experienced being together with many of you, our members and friends. We are now considering the different ways to keep up the conference momentum and I welcome your input. My door is always open. In the coming weeks we’ll be asking for your feedback, suggestions and ideas for next year’s conference and future conferences to come.
Some of the many inspiring outcomes from the conference include new relationships, passion and commitment to our profession and to the ACO. We came back home with many new ACO volunteers! We also came back with your ideas for programs, classes, membership enhancements and new article ideas for Circle. I’m proud to be serving this vital organization!
ACO Advocate Steps Down
A thriving organization becomes one through the dedicated vision and hard work of its leaders. The ACO has had the good fortune to have Sarah Wright, a founding member, on the board of directors for six years, since the ACO’s beginning, five of those years as president. She stepped down from the board as of June 1, 2011.
Sarah Wright has been a tireless advocate for fairness, inclusiveness and transparency for the ACO. Through her guidance and hard work, we have become a solid non-profit organization that supports ADHD coaches and coaching globally. We owe much of our strength as a whole, to Sarah’s personal strength, wisdom and knowledge. She leaves us with a solid operating foundation and numerous documents, manuals and business-related processes that will support our work in both the near and distant future.
I am personally grateful to you, Sarah, for your service and your willingness to continue your work on committees, task forces and other projects. It is our good fortune that you will continue to stay closely involved. Even so, I will miss your trademark calm, thoughtful and rational mind at our regular board meetings. It has been, and will continue to be my privilege and pleasure to know you as colleague and friend. I know my colleagues on the board, together with our ACO members and friends, join me in thanking you for your six years of inspiring leadership.Warmest, Robb Garrett President, ADHD Coaches Organization
