The Fourth Annual ICF Washington State Awards Gala
Our 2016 Coaching Gala was held this year at the lovely Talaris Conference Center in a “glass surrounded setting” among weeping willow trees, duck ponds and bridged pathways symbolic of our collective journeys.
We celebrated our own – the special achievements of our veteran coaches announcing Two ACES Awards and applauding recently awarded credential holders including newly minted ACCs and PCCs. We salute their commitment to the coaching profession. It was an evening of camaraderie, networking and fun as we recognized each other and listened to the stories of coaching.
ACES Award - Advancement of Coaching Excellence and Service.The ACES Award recognizes a coach who authentically acts, motivates and inspires excellence and commitment to achieving goals that advance the development of coaches and the coaching profession and the coaching community.

This evening of celebration and networking honors our work as coaches. We honored both our success stories and the meaning and fulfillment we get from partnering with clients and one another as professional coaches.
A special thank you to all the volunteers who made this event possible!

Dear Master Coach
Dear Master Coach:
I just looked up “quotes about silence” and scanned through the first page of self-help images.
