If you are interested in getting involved in the association and have a desire to give back, then our Coaches Communities are a great way to get your foot in the door and be apart of something bigger:

  • Coaches Communities are a great way to connect with other coaches in the association that share a common focus. Many coaches get involved in multiple communities! Allies are always welcome to participate too.
  • Each Coaches Community is made of sub-committees that focus on specific needs of the communities, i.e. Convention Planning, Education, Advocacy, etc. These sub-committees work together to represent the membership, identify the needs of that Community’s coaches and work to bring change for the betterment of coaches.
  • Our Coaches Communities also serve as a pathway to leadership in the association. There are opportunities to serve on a Community’s sub-committee or become the group’s Chair.
  • Through this pathway, members will gain a wider knowledge of the association and its members. This is an excellent pathway for anyone wishing to run for the Board of Directors in the future.
