2020 Recap

Hello everyone!

2020 has been one for the books! My focus at the beginning of this year was partner ENGAGEMENT.  I wanted to make sure our Board of Directors stayed connected to our members and met their professional development needs. When the Pandemic began, we were able to swiftly make our services virtual because of your dedication and engagement. Thank you for showing up, asking questions and volunteering your time!  As the year is winding down,  I wanted to highlight some chapter activities we rolled out this year with your support.  Here is a recap.

New Chapter Website
We launched our new website in January. The intent behind this change is to enhance our members' experience with us and market our chapter features such as online registration and registration for education programming. The new website includes a private login area for members and on-site registration for upcoming webinars and events.

Virtual Open House
We  held our first open house in March. It gave members or those who are thinking about becoming members the opportunity to learn more about our chapter as well as ask us any questions you have about the coaching profession.

All State Virtual Coaches Cafes  
We combined our in person coach cafes into one monthly virtual cafe hosted by chapter volunteers.

New Coaches Forum  
Our chapter added a new professional development for newer coaches who are looking to grow their coaching business and learn more about the profession.

ICF Coaching Week Partnership with Delta Theta Sigma
In May, we partnered with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated to offer pro-bono coaching to their members. Several of you willingly offered your time and showed up for our partnering communities.

As we close out 2020, I am confident that we will continue to work together, network with each other, and provide engaging professional development you need in 2021 to respond to any challenges ahead.

2020 ICF Michigan President
