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 are 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.

Save the Date! The upcoming AGM will take place on December 7th, 2019.
If you have an interest in contributing to the our Chapter, but cannot commit to sitting on the Board of Directors, you are invited to consider joining a committee. Each of the Director portfolios has a committee to support the tasks involved in that portfolio. Want to know more? Contact the President or the specific Director you would like to support. Visit our Contact Us page for contact details for each board member.
The Chapter is currently seeking a volunteer for the Treasurer Committee:
John Burr, our Treasurer will be stepping down from his role on the board in January 2020. John has done an amazing job of ensuring that our finances are strong. Under John’s leadership we are one of the few chapters that does not charge extra for our members to be a part of our chapter. We are looking for a volunteer who would like to be a committee member, starting as soon as possible, under the treasurer portfolio and be willing to stand for election to the Treasurer role in 2020. This would allow you to be mentored by John for the remainder of the year.
Volunteer for Special Events
To volunteer for a Special Event, please contact the Director of Events.
Special Volunteer Opportunity:
We are looking to create an Ignite initiative for our chapter. This initiative harnesses the collective power of ICF Chapters to accelerate the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goal of Education. We are looking for committee members to help develop and run a pro bono portfolio for our chapter. This portfolio will allow us to impact our communities, our youth and demonstrate the impact of coaching.
The Chapter is also seeking support in two other areas:
- Someone to support the Chapter’s sponsorship efforts, helping to bring in outside resources for our members that will also generate revenue for the chapter.
- Someone who would support credentialing so that we can better support our membership to advance in the different levels of their coaching: ACC, PCC & MCC.
