March President’s Message

March 2018 message from President, Sandra Hughes:

Hello Everyone in the ICF Ohio Valley Chapter!

It’s my pleasure to reach out to you each month with a snapshot of what’s available to you within your local community of coaches! ICF  OV is invested in your ongoing success and professional development.  I look forward to meeting you virtually and in person! Check out our Calendar of Events.

As we March into Spring(?!) there are a couple things requiring some quick action from you-

1. RENEW your membership with ICF Global and declare Ohio Valley as your default home chapter! Otherwise ALL memberships will expire March 31.  I’ve created a video of all the reasons why, including how you can recover the cost that you can view on Facebook. It’s my first ever video so be kind! 🙂

Being a member of ICF Ohio Valley is FREE once you join globally. This is different than many other chapters. Money aside, you’ll want to choose us because we have won 2 global awards in the last 3 years for our strong foundation, financial stability, and offerings for coaches locally that keep them coming back to us!  Don’t delay – Please Renew – we love having you as part of our community!

2. REGISTER NOW for the Midwest Regional Coaches Conference immediately as the deadline for early bird is April 1! This years conference will be held June 21-23 in Pittsburgh — just a road trip for many of us! Carpool options will be available…maybe even a Party Bus?!

And remember that we are your home to help promote you and your business –

  • List your profile in our ‘Find a Coach’ directory – we will be promoting this at all events and news releases throughout our geography. Contact us with your profile information.
  • Submit your blogpost for free on our ICF OV website; you can include the link in your communications on social media, or to clients.
