You know all those class reunions you went to – or not? I never went to one but so many have and truly enjoyed the reunion with their class mates – catching up on the latest news and maybe even a little gossip. You went home feeling great and looked forward to the next reunion.
Well, today we are in Reston, Virginia wrapping up the last day of conference. I’m writing this before conference starts, so I can’t tell you how it went. But in past conferences we left feeling renewed with all the knowledge we gained. We felt the connection with our “tribe” . . . an experience we would never forget. After all, we have so much in common and we could talk forever. Learning from your colleagues and special guests is so powerful to me. I leave feeling sad because it will be a year before I see my colleagues again, but on the flight home I’m smiling ear-to-ear at all the fun events and conversations I had. These are memories that no one can take away and memories that drive me back each year.
The highlight of each year for me is announcing the winner of the Founders Award. This year it is David Giwerc. See the article in this issue about David and his dedicated journey to advancing coaching to a status that has made us all proud to be ADHD Coaches.
If you didn’t make it to conference this year, I hope you can make it next year – also in Reston.
I truly love being your President. Until the next time . . . .
