Associations bind professions and professionals together. The true professional is a member of his or her professional organization. By joining and maintaining membership in the ICF, coaches inform others that they are a part of an influential voice that is shaping the future of coaching around the world.
- Add a Community of Practice meeting to your calendar for June. ICF Communities of Practice, formerly known as Special Interest Groups, offer ICF members an additional venue in various niches to communicate best practices and new ideas. CPs generally meet by teleconference once a month. Peruse the complete CP list to see if any strike your fancy (and make a plan to join their next call!).
- Submit a guest blog post or Coaching World article submission (or idea). If you have something to share, be it an innovative approach, best practice, or interesting concept related to coaching, share it with us! View ICF Guest Blogger Guidelines. Send Coaching World ideas and submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
