2020 CCC

September Conference Canceled...Postponed to 2021

The ICF Metro DC Chapter’s annual Capital Coaches Conference now stands as the area’s premier networking and professional development event for coaches and allied professionals.

Over the past several weeks, ICF Metro DC has tracked the rapid progression of the coronavirus pandemic and the actions taken by the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia governments to address it.  We have focused on its potential impact on the annual Conference in September.

After careful consideration of several options, we have concluded that hosting this event in September is not in the best interests of our ICF Metro DC coaching community for two important reasons:  the protection of everyone’s safety and well-being, and sensitivity to the financial impact that many of you may be facing as a result of the adverse economic consequences of the pandemic.

Consequently, we have reluctantly made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Capital Coaches Conference.

As you might suspect, we’re truly disappointed that we won’t be able to hold our annual Conference this year, with the professional development and community-building opportunities that it always provides. We do plan to reschedule the Conference in 2021, at a date to be determined – so stay tuned for further updates!.

If you have questions about the coronavirus pandemic itself, we encourage you to review the CDC’s website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html, as well as our ICF Metro DC website https://icfmetrodc.org/COVID-19 for a list of resources that may help you during this unprecedented time (and if you have suggestions to add to that site, please email them to [email protected]).

When we emerge from this crisis, we know our coaching community will be stronger, better, wiser – and also likely a bit different.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we look to the future and the upcoming 2021 Conference.

Stay safe and be well.
