Chapter News

Membership Update


We have great news regarding our membership! Despite this unprecedented pandemic year, and the many circumstances related to it, our Calgary Chapter has been recognized by ICF Global for the growth of our membership from 2019 to 2020. Our membership total is 346.  Congratulations to all of you who make up this amazing local coaching community!

Whether you are a member of ICF, thinking about becoming a member of ICF, a member of our Calgary Chapter, or out there doing amazing coaching work in the community, we are all in this together.  Without each one of you, we wouldn’t be able to create high quality programming, offer rich learning experiences, or come together to connect with our peers in such meaningful ways.

Membership Renewal Season is quickly approaching.  Each membership expires March 31st and we want to encourage you to maintain your ICF membership and Calgary Chapter affiliation.  Your engagement and support makes a real difference! 

Please reach out if you have any questions or feedback – we want to hear from you!

Susan McGuire, Membership Director, ICF Calgary
