Dear ICF Vancouver Members and Affiliates,



We hope you are all enjoying the sunshine and our glorious city the past month as we transition into even hotter days.

Our Board has been in full swing and we have hosted two successful events so far, including the launch of Coaches Engage where we experienced a remarkable outpouring of energy and enthusiasm.

It was a great step to re-engaging with our community and we look forward to seeing many more of you at our next Coaches Engage event, Tuesday, June 12th. An overview of what’s coming up for the rest of 2018 is enclosed and I personally appeal to you to participate in as many events as you can to support other coaches, and to lend your expertise and perhaps become a leader in our group activities.

Coaches Engage Launch

This is our newest signature program to bring coaches from all areas of practice together. Launched during International Coaching Week in May, we welcomed seasoned and new members alike and enjoyed an evening of networking, learning, collaboration, and coaching!







shared interests

Shared interests, challenges, and expectations were discussed and we have our next event planned for 12th June to include core competency and current trend topics to keep our community of coaches vitalized.








We are still keen to hear from you as we hope to gather more leaders to facilitate core groups across Metro Vancouver and across the Valley to reach everyone in our Chapter.

Contact Charlene Roberts or Mark Winter for more details.

Are you published or would you like to find out more about writing? We are calling all authors in our community to step forward and support each other.

We will plan an event and engage a speaker to share tips on how to successfully complete your book and find the best ways to explore publishing.

Authors in our midst will also share their experience with our Chapter members. Interested authors/writers/editors/wordsmiths please contact Karen Flynn for more details.

Time off during July and August


As summer approaches, we would like to inform our members that the Board will take time to be with their families during July and August.

Programs will not be active during these months and there will be delays in responses to emails.







Coaching Changes the World…Begining with You!
