We hope this invitation finds you healthy and safe during this global pandemic. ICF LA normally has an onsite Chapter Meeting that services about 60 of our members 6 times a year at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles. Due to the stay at home measures put in place to help flatten the curve of this pandemic, our May Meeting has been moved online.

Like so many situations in this new context, there are some silver linings we find. We have an unprecedented opportunity to share this Chapter Meeting with all our members. We are excited and honored to offer the May Chapter meeting to our entire membership and friends as a way to connect and recharge our hearts and minds. Come celebrate the International Coaches Week with ICF-LA on a Virtual Chapter Meeting zoom call on May 13, 4:00 PM Pacific.

The good news is it’s virtual, and you don’t have to get in your car to get to the meeting. In fact, you don’t even have to be in LA or in the United States.  So join us on Wednesday, May 13, for a panel discussion celebrating International Coach Week.

Come participate with our three distinguished panelists from the Humans First Club (humansfirst.club) as they discuss different approaches to Leadership, placing humans first. Our speakers are Mike Vacanti, Kimberly Davis, and Heather Younger, who will share their insights around this inflection point for us as coaches and leaders.

In this unprecedented time, leave with specific takeaways to serve your clients and yourselves as we look at Leadership and Coaching in the midst of this crisis: Registration will be coming this week. We hope to see all 400+ members and friends!
