2019 New Year Black

What the new year brings to you
will depend a great deal on what you bring to the new year.
—Vern McLellan


Happy New Year!

As we say goodbye to 2018, I'd like to take a moment to say Thank You from the bottom of my heart to Coleen Chandler, our past president, and acknowledge her leadership that has set up this Chapter to move forward gracefully into 2019.  Together, the board of directors and members have been an integral part of our continued growth and success in 2018.  The dedication you all give is strengthening our profession as coaches, and our overall community. We welcome 2019 and all the possibilities it will bring, and I am excited to be your new President.  The continued success of the chapter and its board of directors is through a solid partnership between our members and board.  We welcome every member’s input and feedback as it is critical in ensuring we are meeting the needs of our members.

ICF Sacramento Charter Chapter Goals for 2019.

Grow our Chapter membership by 20 percent; and
Incorporate FUN events for our members through quarterly networking meetings and new membership celebrations.
