As a Charter Chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF), VI Coaches is a volunteer run, non-profit society dedicated to the learning and growth of its members and invites member participation in all activities of the organization. Volunteering is a wonderful way to contribute to the Chapter and support the advancement of our profession, as well as to advance your skills and knowledge, while deepening your relationships and networks.
Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities
Board of Directors:
If you, or someone you know, is interested in building community, supporting growth of the coaching profession and sharing some laughs then joining the board of directors might be a perfect fit!
VI Coaches holds its Annual General Meeting in December or January of each year at which time new board members who have been nominated are elected to the Board. There are occasions when the Board of Directors needs to fill a vacant board portfolio part way through the year, so members are encouraged to make their interest known throughout the year. VI Coaches members who are interested in volunteering on the Board of Directors can contact the Nominations Committee or the Past President of the Board for more information.
