Hello Coaches, Cindy here, touching base with you.

In January 2017, the ICF SA Board of Directors and Invited Board Members met for its very first face to face Strategic planning meeting in Cape Town. During the two-day meeting the Board discussed a variety of focus areas, Strategizing and Goal planning for 2017. We have some exciting Events, strategic Engagements and New Developments lined-up to help cultivate and grow both Professional and in Business.

The Board also continued its conversations around engaging and recognizing the contributions of individual coach-members towards the advancement of the coaching profession in South Africa. I personally want to thank all ICF SA Board of Directors and Invited Board Members who graciously gave off their time, energy and commitment to advancing the Coaching Profession.
