General Membership Meetings
General Membership Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month. To accommodate our members’ schedules, we alternate between mid-day meetings (11:30 to 1:00 p.m.) and evening meetings (6:30 to 8:00 p.m.).
Our sponsor, the Academy for Coaching Excellence, provides our association with a professional meeting place, which is located in their offices at: 1900 Point West Way, Suite 122, Sacramento. Please note that there is no food available. Feel free to brown bag it with a snack or meal. On occasion, meeting dates may change. Be sure to read our monthly E-newsletter which will always have information on the upcoming meeting.
Please arrive on time and enjoy the opportunity to network with fellow coaches, guests and our speaker. In addition to brief general membership news and member introductions, we also host a speaker each month on topics that are relevant to coaches and the coaching profession. An added benefit for credentialed coaches is that you will receive CCEUs for many of our programs. Join the fun, inspiration, skill building and networking opportunities by marking the second Tuesdays on your calendar for the next year. Please RSVP for each meeting.
If you are interested in being a speaker or have questions about a program, please feel free to our Professional Development Chair, Penny Pearl.
Meeting Location is: 1900 Point West Way, Suite 122, Sacramento, CA (at the Academy for Coaching Excellence).
Meetings are free to members. Membership renewals are due on April 1st. Renew here.
