MACCA Upcoming Events
MACCA is proud to offer quality professional development events throughout the year. Many of our MACCA events in 2023 will remain virtual as this continues to be an easier option for members. However, we are hoping to be able to meet in person more often in the coming years.
See below for details on each of our upcoming events. Our MACCA Meet-Ups are open to everyone. You must be a member to attend the Each of Us An Expert sessions. Guests will be admitted to one event only, after that membership will be required.
These sessions are scheduled every other month.
When: Friday, April 21st at 12:00 pm
Where: Zoom Meeting
Topic: Wait, I’m too Old to Retire! What comes next after a Successful Career?
Presenter: Emily Rothberg
It can be daunting to plan our life “in retirement,” even as we know this next chapter is going to happen, whether we plan for it, or not. As coaches, our clients may be facing the same uncertainty.
While financial planning is standard practice, we rarely consider the psychological and practical considerations. For Gen X’ers and baby boomers transitioning from more traditional work arrangements, going from 100 MPH to 0 can seem unthinkable, especially if the retirement decision is being made for us (i.e., we’re being nudged out the door).
So, what can we do? And, as coaches, how can we help older clients who may be struggling with this issue. Join MACCA and Emily Rothberg, Rothberg Coaching, LLC, for an interactive session as we explore this next chapter of life. Emily will 1) share why emotional retirement planning is so daunting, 2) offer options, including a framework, for determining what’s possible, and 3) offer tips and activities to take away as food for thought.
Dates and topics for remaining 2023 sessions TBD.
NOTE: Only MACCA members will continue to have access to our Expert Series in 2023 as a member benefit. Non-members will be able to join for a small fee.
These sessions are generally scheduled the first Monday of every month.
When: Monday, April 3rd at 12:00 pm

Topic: Branding and Professional Development
Facilitated by: Eileen Snyder
Branding is a promise. It’s an individual’s reputation and unique image.
This discussion will focus on self-awareness as an essential component of establishing a professional brand and career identity. If you agree that self-awareness is the foundation for establishing and growing a professional brand we need to explore the following questions:
How do you cultivate a deep understanding of yourself?
How do you learn?
How do you work with others?
What are your values?
Where can you make the greatest contribution?
How can professional development act as a conduit in establishing a brand that creates a perception in the minds of others when they hear your name?
Remaining dates for 2023 are as follows:
May 1st, June 5th, July 10th, August 7th, September 11th,
October 2nd, November 6th, and December 4th.
Join our next board meeting to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what MACCA is all about.
