The coach serves 18 months: one year with the 2020 cohort of regional chairs-elect and six months with them in 2021 as regional chairs, until the 2021 Annual Conference & Expo. The coach works with the chair-elect cohort to foster collegiality and support their transition into their regional chair role. As a former regional chair, the coach will share perspectives on managing the work of a regional team, promote the sharing of best practices between regions, and provide on-going support and professional development.
