For the holidays, give ICISF a smile!
With the Winter holidays almost upon us, you're probably doing a good deal of holiday shopping. Did you know that, as you shop, you can also support ICISF? We've signed up as a beneficiary with Amazon's new program for charitable giving, Amazon Smile. It's easy to support ICISF through this program. Just visit smile.amazon.com, and enter "ICISF" in the box labeled "pick your own charitable organization." Click SELECT next to our name, and you'll be rerouted to the Amazon web page, where 0.5% of all your eligible purchases will be donated to ICISF. Just remember, when you go to shop online, to go to smile.amazon.com. It's that simple!

Message from the Chair of the Board of Directors
On behalf of the International Critical Incident Stress Foundation’s Board of Directors, I would like to announce reorganization to ICISF’s structure.
On August 26, 2013, Rick Barton will join the ICISF as interim Chief Executive Officer overseeing all aspects of our organization. Rick has a strong track record of executive leadership in the not-for-profit world. His charge from the Board of Directors is to lead the organization in achieving the goals of the Strategic Plan. The Board of Directors have not placed any expectation that Rick will function in a fund raising capacity but we are confident his direction will assist us in continuing to achieve financial stability and growth.
Shining Star Program
ICISF is proud to announce a new recognition program entitled "Shining Star" in CISM. Current CISM Teams or Liaisons may nominate a local person who has shown outstanding leadership/innovation (5 years plus) for their efforts in promoting CISM. Nominations will be evaluated by a committee comprised of Pete Volkmann from New York, Sandy Scerra from Massachusetts, Dennis Potter from Michigan and Mary Schoenfeldt from Washington State. This committee is independent of the ICISF office.
Announcements will be provided by ICISF on their webpage and in LifeNet Newsletter. This program will recognize the grass roots efforts and successes of CISM worldwide. The recipient being honored will receive a special pin and a Proclamation from ICISF. Please nominate those rising stars in CISM. We need to know.
