Spring has truly arrived here in Ohio! And it’s the season for growth and new and refreshing ideas. Of course, where will you find more refreshing ideas than at our 10th Anniversary of the ACO at the conference in Phoenix. Need CEUs? This is the place to get them. Want to meet the members you’ve been interacting with on the listserv and Facebook? Want to meet your Board members? Win prizes? This is the place to do that. Oops! Not signed up? Don’t worry, you still have one month to do that (sign up here)!
And speaking of spring and growth and new ideas, what about the growth of ACO and its Board? In the past year we have introduced you to two new board members: Lee Rozycki, Marketing Chair and Public Relations, and Chris Mulhare, Membership Chair. And we have just added a third board member: a new Programs Chair. With new people stepping up to contribute their vision and talents comes new growth for the ACO. I’m very excited about it all, and I think you will be, too. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to Robin Nordmeyer, our new Programs Chair!
Robin is excited about being able to draw both on her passions for helping people develop their strengths and on her past experience with professional and business development to create new opportunities for ACO members to receive ongoing training, continuing education, and support. The focus of the new programs will be continued development for ADHD coaches of all experience levels. There will be offerings for both those who have just recently completed their formal coach training, as well as for those who have been practicing as ADHD Coaches for some time.
Robin has served as Programs Chair for two consecutive years with her ICF Minnesota Chapter. She Co-Chaired the 2014 ACO Conference along with Katherine Jahnke. She served as Special Events Chair for two consecutive years for the ICF Midwest Regional Conference. She has co-developed a successful business intensive program to help coaches launch and build a sustaining practice or to take their existing business to the next level. Prior to coaching, Robin worked with Procter and Gamble for 13 years in customer business development and sales. One of Robin’s many treasured roles with Procter and Gamble was focused on training and implementing quality of life initiatives geared to help health care professionals and hospitals serve their patients for various chronic health conditions. Another was training and mentoring with her sales team.
More information about plans for programming will be shared during the 8th Annual ACO conference. Meanwhile, if you share the same passion of helping other coaches with their professional development, Robin invites you to contact her to see how you can get involved with breaking ground on this new opportunity from the start.

Until next time . . .
