Hi VICA chapter members. I’m excited about my role as Membership Director for 2015 as the ICF celebrates its 20th anniversary. Many of us joined this profession because of our desire to transform individual lives and organizations through coaching. As a professionally trained coach, I’m proud to stand with the International Coach Federation’s vibrant global community.
ICF exists to advance the coaching profession and to offer support to you. ICF Membership offers multiple opportunities to connect with the local and global coaching community. Participate in the ICF Communities of Practice (I attend two) where coaches from around the world share best practices and new ideas or give and receive coaching through reciprocal peer coaching. Check out Coaching World, the free quarterly online magazine produced by the ICF. Issues are full of insightful articles, videos, case studies and research that will inform coaching practices, inspire new ideas and offer tools that can be implemented immediately.
Vancouver Island Chapter Members benefit locally by:
- Networking with peers at chapter events
- Enjoying valuable virtual educational offerings
- Accessing the Early Bird registration fee for the Coaching Supervision Forum in July (up to a $100 savings)
- Participating in International Coaching Week Events
- Profiling your coaching services on our VICA website
- Helping our local communities flourish through coaching initiatives and other service projects
As an ICF Member, you’ll also continue to enjoy the instant credibility that comes with identifying yourself as a member of the world’s largest community of professionally trained coaches. Rejoin ICF for another year to connect with our cutting-edge coaching research, lifelong learning, and opportunities for networking and community-building.
ICF Membership indicates your commitment to the profession and to your clients. But equally important—it is simply an investment in yourself.
We have an exciting year planned and I look forward to serving you. Please feel free to connect firstname.lastname@example.org
