President's Message





Dear ICFLA Community,

This past month, we completed our Annual Chapter Activity Report for ICF global. Which provides a comprehensive snapshot of everything we have achieved over the last 12 months.

I know I am biased, but as a chapter we have been nothing short of AMAZING this year:

  • Our membership (those who identify with our chapter through ICF global) surpassed 900! This is our largest total ever.
  • We have also hosted 81 events worth a total of 117 CCEs.
  • We have created a series of onboarding videos for new members, a new renewal reminder strategy for ongoing members
  • We re-branded our chapter meetings to C³ Chapter Events
  • We hosted our first in-person events since early 2020.
  • We created and deepened alliances and partnerships with USC, Professionals In Human Resources Association (PIHRA), and multiple coaching schools and businesses in the Los Angeles area.
  • We established a DEI committee and created a DEI mission and strategy.
  • We added new SIGs, updated our communication strategies, added videos to the President’s message, and updated our Find A Coach tool.

I am so impressed with our chapter members, our team of volunteers, and our board. Thank you for all you have done, and for all you do to make our chapter one to be admired, respected and inspirational.

Find a Coach

In our annual survey, a consistently stated need from members is help getting more clients and work. To help, we have updated and expanded our Find A Coach tool. The goal is to make the tool helpful to a client or company searching to find a coach who is a good fit for their needs. You can now identify your top industries of experience, your top coaching themes, and include a direct link to your calendar to schedule a chat with a prospective client. Take a moment to go to your member dashboard, and update your profile so that you can be easily found in all of the categories!

New Member Referral Program

Between now and our December C³ Chapter Event, we are running our Referral Rewards Program. If you refer five  new members to ICFLA (they must state in their registration form that you referred them) you will get a year of free ICFLA membership.

DEI Climate Questionnaire

Our DEI committee released a DEI Climate Questionnaire for our members via email on October 23rd. We strive to be a chapter that is inclusive and equitable to all, and we value your input so please take a few moments to respond.

Volunteers wanted and needed

Our President-Elect Diana Ideus is hard at work putting together the board and our team of volunteers for 2023. If you are considering joining the leadership team, now is the time to raise your hand. Fill out our volunteer interest form, and our Director of Volunteers Tiffany Dedeaux will connect with you.


In Service,
Carrie Williams, PCC
ICFLA President 2022
