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 or become more involved by serving on acommittee in the future.
