Our Chapter has many strengths, our greatest is the volunteers who found us, ground us and surround us.

The most recent addition to our powerful team is Janet Davie who joined the ICF Vancouver Board Leadership team this month in the role of Membership Director.

PhotographerA recent graduate to our coaching community, Janet answered a resounding ‘yes!’ when asked to volunteer at our Chapter meeting in November. She didn’t miss a beat (or a name) and took her place at the registration table, under the supportive guidance of Donna Howes, VP/Membership Director.

Janet’s enthusiasm, diligence and commitment to her new volunteer role, along with her knowledge, experience and skill set were the inspiration and qualifications the Board Membership position was hoping to find. When asked about the possibility of taking on a bigger role with our Chapter, Janet said ‘yes’…again!

Janet, on behalf of the leadership team, our volunteer team, and the ICF Vancouver Charter Chapter members, welcome to the Board of Directors!

And to you, our members and affiliates, in closing please enjoy this ‘bouquet of quotes’, along with my invitation to consider adding your ‘yes’ and joining our team of volunteers. Bouquet of quotes

If you want to touch the present – touch a rose.
