Guidance about Joining

Membership in the local ICF Charlotte Area Charter Chapter provides opportunities to connect with a diverse community of coaches, network, develop professionally, and commit to the ethics and standards of ICF Global.  We also are proud to have a Sub Chapter, Western Carolina Coaches, whose members are located near Asheville, NC.

To be a considered a Member of the Charlotte Area Charter Chapter, you must first be a member of ICF Global.  Review the Global ICF Membership Eligibility Requirements. If you are not eligible for membership, anyone interested in learning more and participating in local chapter events may join as an ICF Charlotte Area Charter Chapter Affiliate.  Membership at any level does NOT require you be ICF credentialed.

They are also eligible to serve on the board, lead a committee or special event, and represent the chapter at community events.
