Joining the Charlotte Area Chapter of International Coach Federation (ICF-CAC) establishes your professional commitment to the field of coaching. Members experience a variety of benefits, including:
ICF-CAC monthly meetings are held the fourth Thursday of the month from January through October (with special meeting dates in November and December). There is no charge for guests during their first visit and as a member, there is no charge to attend these meetings.
Our monthly meetings feature knowledgeable and engaging speakers who will address a range of topics pertinent to the coaching profession. Offering high caliber programs that will enhance your professional development is one of our top priorities. The majority of our programs also offer ICF Continuing Education Credits (CCEs).
One of the greatest benefits of membership is the opportunity to network with other professional coaches who share a common mission. Learn about current trends in the field of coaching, enlist help with your current projects or collaborate with others, and share ideas and inspiration with supportive colleagues.
Increased Profile Through Our Website
Membership entitles you to a listing in the coach directory on the Find a Coach section of our website. As a member, you are also eligible to purchase a full page listing which includes your picture and a detailed description of your coaching services. Our Find A Coach search engine helps match up prospective clients with coaches who meet their needs.
Membership in our chapter will also give you the opportunity to participate in group-sponsored events designed to promote the field of coaching and to raise the profiles of member coaches. Past events have included our successful Coach Live workshop and the Human Capital & Innovation Summit.
Develop Your Leadership Skills
ICF-CAC welcomes member involvement! Share or develop your leadership skills and other talents by becoming a board member, participating on a committee or leading a special event.
Professional Credibility and Public Awareness
Affiliation with ICF-CAC establishes your credibility as a serious professional coach committed to the highest ethical standards and business practices. ICF-CAC promotes public awareness of the coaching profession and every member of the chapter benefits when the public has a greater understanding and appreciation of our profession.
Note: Please note that while membership in the global ICF is not a requirement for joining the Charlotte Area Chapter, as a charter chapter of the ICF, we support the ICF Global Minimum Eligibility Requirements policy. We strongly encourage all ICF-CAC members who are practicing coaches to support and join the ICF Global organization.
