ICF Metro DC Community Coffees

Brief, causal, connections between professional coaches - sign up and stop by close to where you work or live. Reground yourself with colleagues. Find home. Share resources, stories of success and heart. Be inquisitive. Just be. Coffee Meet-Ups are also open to non-ICF members who are curious to meet other coaches.

Start your own Local Coaching Coffee … or Coaching Cocktails 

Not finding it convenient to get to a Coaching Coffee but wanting that periodic connection? We understand that commuting around the DC Metro area can be taxing whether you are a coach employed at a company, or an independent coach working for yourself. With over 1,100 Chapter members we can guarantee there are a few coaches just around the corner from you. If you wish to take the lead and be the host, we can work with you to identify ICF Metro DC chapter members near you to help you reach out to them. We can even help with that. Explore more by contacting us at membership@icfmetrodc.org.

Share and Request Resources

Our Coaching Coffees have provided a wealth of information about resources that coaches are using, and coffee hosts and attendees traditionally follow-up by emailing this info to attendees.  In 2018 we will be rolling out a LISTSERV for Coaching Coffee attendees to share resources and for Coaching Coffee hosts to opt to use this as a communication channel. Stay tuned to join the LISTSERV. Coffee hosts, attendees, and other Member Connection event organizers who are active Metro DC Chapter members can send their request to membership@icfmetrodc.org.
