  • 6:30pm – 7:00pm  Award Ceremony
  • 7:00pm – 8:30pm  Member Engagement

Join us for a very special and fun evening.  Every year our coaching community honors the contributions of one amazing individual.  This person demonstrates a high level of commitment to the coaching profession through selfless service.  Their effort and engagement is largely unnoticed.  Although this award is given annually it is not an acknowledgement of the year. It is a culmination of effort over a lifetime. We are proud to unveil this year’s award winner at our in-person event.

We will continue the selfless service theme throughout the evening as we introduce an engaging and fun activity to challenge your own commitment to coaching. You won’t want to miss this amazing experience!
