1) Save some money. If this is the year you plan to apply for a credential, attend an ICF International Conference, purchase ICF-branded coaching research or do business with one of these companies, you should first renew your membership.ICF members receive substantial discounts—to the point where membership practically pays for itself.
2) Free networking and educational offerings. Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings and Virtual Education (VE) sessions are offered on a monthly basis, free of charge. SIGs bring coaches together with similar interests and VE sessions offer presentations by such speaking greats as Peter Block, Christine Gallagher, etc.
|We are ICF.|
4) Leadership development opportunities. Through the chapter level, on global committees or task forces or even on the global Board of Directors, there are numerous opportunities for members to develop their leadership style—and give back to the coaching profession.
5) Professional recognition. Being a member of the ICF (and thus upholding the ICF Code of Ethics and Core Competencies) demonstrates to peers and clients alike your commitment to the coaching profession.
Current ICF memberships will not expire until the end of March, but you can renew your membership online today if you want.
