Letter From the IEA President


March feels different in different parts of the world; in the northern hemisphere spring is slowly arriving, after a very cold winter, especially in the US, and in the southern hemisphere we are saying goodbye to the summer.


And it's now a little over a month since the IEA board had the first in-person meeting of the year. It was held in San Francisco, at the same hotel where the annual conference will take place in July this year. The venue was wonderful, well located and there were many beautiful places to eat and shop in the surrounding area.


These meetings are always an opportunity to strengthen the team and coordinate the work we do as a board during the year. This is a working board and has different task groups, all of which share what they've been doing in the past few months and then focus on what's coming. We all participate in lively discussions that lead to decisions and action plans for each area.

Carta del Presidente de la IEA

Marzo se siente distinto en las distintas partes del mundo; en el hemisferio norte está llegando la primavera lentamente, después de un invierno muy frio, especialmente en Estados Unidos, y en el hemisferio sur le decimos adiós al verano.


Y ya ha pasado un poco más de un mes desde que la junta directiva de la IEA tuvo su primera reunión en persona del año. Se llevó a cabo en San Francisco, en el mismo hotel donde se realizará la conferencia anual en Julio de este año. El lugar es maravilloso, bien ubicado y hay muchos lugares lindos para comer y comprar en los alrededores.

IEA Announces Relaunch Nine Points Magazine


The IEA Board is very pleased to announce that we are now ready to relaunch Nine Points Magazine in a new format - www.ninepointsmagazine.org


The new magazine is a web-based platform offering a much better way for our community to exchange ideas and information. As it is web-based it will be more immediate and we'll be able to respond much more quickly to IEA members' needs. It will be much easier for our Affiliates and Chapters to get the message out to their members and also to those we want to join us in using the Enneagram.


We are developing a section for articles in Spanish to be posted, and we hope to extend this to other languages in the future.


We want this to become the "go-to" place for news and information about the Enneagram.


IEA Members will still have the opportunity to receive a compendium of articles every quarter.


Please take a look and explore the various sections such as news, articles, and profiles, and let us know what you think. There is also a growing section on the conference where you will find lots of information about this year's conference in Denver, including an opportunity for presenters to introduce themselves to you.


As has always been the case, Nine Points Magazine can only ever be what we the members want it to be, so please give us feedback about what you see and what you'd like to see in the future, and think about what you'd like to contribute in the form of articles or news or something that we haven't yet thought about.


Best wishes,


Peter McNab,
