Dear <<First Name>>,

We are pleased to send to you ICF Hong Kong's first newsletter for 2019.  In this issue, we shine the spotlight on the Chapter’s VISION for 2019. 

Please click on the titles below to jump to the relevant section.

  Renewal season is upon us!  March is the time all ICF members renew their membership with ICF.  We remind you of the benefits and resources available through membership.

With a new Board and a new President, we want to share our vision and mission for  ICF Hong in 2019.  We hope this vision resonates and inspires you to be active within the Chapter.

We highlight some upcoming events to look forward to in the coming months.  More events are being planned and will be announced in due course.

Our membership base voted for them in 2018 - we introduce our new Chapter Leaders and share their vision on what they would like to see at ICF Hong Kong this year.  

We hope you find this newsletter informative.  We wish all our members a successful and fruitful year ahead!


The ICF Hong Kong Charter Chapter Board
Your ICF membership automatically expires on 31 March and your renewal is important to us.  By renewing, not only will you be part of the largest professional coaching body in the world, you also get access to the best available resources to help you develop as a coach.  Furthermore, you also empower us, your local Chapter, by enabling us to receive membership rebates from ICF Global of which 100% goes to sustaining the Chapter and helping us fund events and activities.  

For every renewal made by 31 March, we get allocated the largest rebate for the year.  The later you renew, the smaller our rebate.  So in many ways, we are relying on your membership to keep us sustainable and active!

Our Vision for 2019 
Every organisation needs to have a vision.  The ICF Hong Kong Board took time to speak to some members of our Chapter and asked them a simple question - "what value are you looking for as a member of ICF Hong Kong?"

The feedback we received helped us formulate a vision for 2019.  We hope it encapsulates what our members expect and hope to see through their membership in the Chapter.  Along with being part of a diverse community, we want to our members grow in their coaching and through ICF, find credibility, and validation for their work.  
We hope this vision resonates and inspires you to connect with us.

ICF Hong Kong’s goal for 2019 is to be:

"A leader in advancing the excellence of the coaching profession in Hong Kong and helping it reach the highest standards and values as defined by ICF Global."

We want to support our members in the following ways:
