President's Report

I can't think of a better way to start of this newsletter than announce a raffle that we have going on!  It is so simple to enter and the prize is amazing!

ICF Chicago has one Pro Coach pass from WBECS (valued at $1494) and we want to give it to one of our current members.  To enter the raffle you must complete your profile on our website (contact info and bio).  

So, head to our chapter website, login with your member credentials, and update or enter a short bio and your contact information.  The benefit is twofold, first you will make it easier for those looking for coaches to find you AND you will be eligible to enter the raffle.  After you fill out your bio, simply email [email protected] and say “my profile is complete". You will automatically be entered to win!  The deadline for entry is Tuesday, June 30 at 5 PM. 

The Nominating Committee has selected the following slate Oct 1, 2020 through Sept. 30, 2020: President: Arika Clark President Elect: Sheryl Shields Secretary: Don Darling Programs: Michelle Aikens Membership: Lillian Ferrer Marketing: Danny Schulman Treasurer: Robert Conlin Member at Large: Fernando Yepez. Your vote is confidential and will be open until July 11.  Members please click here to vote.
Last, we are still looking for people who will serve as mentors in our special virtual Speed Mentoring event Saturday, Sept 12, 2020. You can check out all the info here.
