What Do I Get Out of ICF Membership, Anyway?

The value of membership in the Metro DC chapter of ICF, the largest in North America, is well known to our nearly 800 member coaches. Our chapter provides a vital resource for building your practice through networking, education, marketing opportunities, and community awareness and outreach. Chapter members enjoy our “Find a Coach” service to increase your visibility to those seeking a coach; member discounts to chapter-sponsored events and affordable member rates to help you promote your events, workshops, seminars and speaking engagements; a mentor database for your certification process; and our highly informative, twice-monthly e-newsletter. And each month, the chapter provides opportunities to earn your requisite Continuing Coaching Education Units. Join or renew today to keep these benefits coming!

Your Metro DC Board of Directors highly values your membership and partnership in the ICF and the Local Metro DC chapter. It also strongly encourages you to be familiar with this new MER policy and asks that you register as soon as possible and avoid any problems with the MER implementation.

Again, if you have any questions please email them to
