ICF MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL
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!

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.
