President's Message

Welcome to a new ICF Metro DC year!

I am thrilled to be serving as President for our chapter and looking forward to meeting and getting to know many of you at our events over the next many months.

We have a wonderful team serving our board this year. Your board is a group of amazing people who are deeply dedicated to ensure that your membership is worth your investment in time and money.

Have you considered getting involved in our Chapter? We are looking to fill vacant spaces on our committees. Committees members will work closely with the Chair to generate new ideas and bring existing ideas to life. We have committees to support Professional Development, Marking and Communications, Memberships and Community Outreach.

Joining is committee is a wonderful, easy way to connect with fellow coaches and help our chapter thrive.
