Amazingly, once again I can report that the ACO’s International ADHD Coaches Conference was the biggest and best conference yet! Our keynote and breakout session speakers helped 137 coaches, physicians, therapists, and educators bring home many new ideas, while earning both ICF and PAAC CEUs. Our bookstore and vendor hall were the largest yet, with many people taking advantage of both. Collaboration was seen everywhere between coaches and and between coaches and vendors. The connections and friendships that attendees made and renewed will help sustain everyone in the year to come. I want to thank all those who made our theme, Coaching the Heart and Mind, a truly wonderful experience.

And then there was the great Saturday night “Talent Show” put together by Dean Solden, Judith Champion, Peggy Ramundo, and Madelyn Griffith Haynie to honor the late Kate Kelley. A great video, put together by Rick Green of Totally ADD was also shown. Our coaches have so much talent – vocalists, comedians, country singers, poetry and more. Fun was had by everyone. Maybe you’ll decide to step forward next year in Phoenix.

Next year our conference will be May 2-4, 2014, in Phoenix, Arizona. And, you can save $100 by registering now through December 15th. Go to the registration page and start the process for next year. Remember you can make payment in two payments.

I hope to see all of you in Phoenix. It was my pleasure to be your conference chair. And thank you for the many kind words that came across the listserv.
