Guidance about Joining

The ICF Charlotte Area Chapter (CAC) has two types of membership offerings based on whether or not you are a member of ICF Global.

ICF-CAC Member

ICF-CAC Members are required to be a member in good standing with Global ICF. Choose this membership option if you are currently a member of ICF Global. Additionally, if you have completed or are enrolled in an ICF approved training program, you may want to consider joining ICF Global prior to joining ICF-CAC. This provides lower cost membership dues for you and access to more benefits. 

ICF-CAC Affiliate

Choose this option if you are not a member of Global ICF. We welcome and maintain an active group of Affiliates who benefit from the development and networking activities offered by our chapter.

Join / Renew
