President's Report

My wish for you, ICF Chicago, is that you are staying safe, well and happy!  If you need something, don't hesitate to reach out to an ICF Chicago member.  I like to think of us a family that is here for one another! And I am proud and honored to be a part of this family!  

ICF Chicago help me out, - I need you!  We are looking for someone to act as an ambassador to those that have questions about ICF credentialing.  The requirements are: 1.  You enjoy helping your fellow coaches, 2.  You are ICF Credentialed (ACC, PCC or MCC) and 3.  You are available on Wednesday, June 24th from 10 - 11 am for a training.  We don't need you to be an expert on the credentialing process, just have the ability to point those with questions in the right direction.  Please reach out to me if you have any questions, need more information or woud like to be on of the Credentialing Ambassadors. Please email me at [email protected].  

We have some amazing events coming up and we want our members to take advantage of the FREE virtual programming  that we have now! From now until the end of the year, all virtual Monthly Chapter programs and Business Sig's will be FREE of charge for all ICF Chicago members.  

And remember - Coaches Change Lives! #whyacoach

What's New


We would like to apologize for leaving Barbara Wilson off our list of new ACC's!  Congratulations Barbara!!

From the ICF Chicago Secretary, Don Darling

ICF-Chicago NEEDS you! Our election of new Officers and Board Members will begin online June 24, 2020. If you are interested in serving on the Board, please submit a letter of interest, a resume and your bio to the Nominations Committee, Debbie Leoni, Chair to [email protected] by Monday, June 8, 2020.

The following positions are to be voted on:
President-elect (will become President effective October 1, 2021, following a year as President-elect.)
Director, Programs
Director, Marketing
At-Large Board Member

By way of background, the revisions to the ICF-Chicago By-laws were approved and effective April 15, 2020. The major change to them was to ‘move’ our operating year to begin October 1 of each year through September 30 of the following year (we have been on a calendar year basis, but that is not the most effective for planning and programming.)

The duties of the open positions from the Policies and Procedures can be found by CLICKING HERE

Thank you,
Don Darling
ICF Chicago Secretary
