President's Message


Dear ICFLA Community,

Happy Anniversary! This month marks our 20-year anniversary as a chapter. As an organization of over 400 members strong, we have come a long way from our first meeting of 11 members in the back of a police station.  This growth and sustainability have happened because of the dedication and commitment of our volunteers over the last two decades. Members like you who chose to invest back in the coaching community generously and consistently. 

May 16-20 is International Coaching Week (ICW) and we have an amazing, educational series of events scheduled –  including our first in-person event in over 2 years! On Wednesday, May 18, we will host Reimagining Leadership for the Future, a panel of leaders from across Los Angeles taking place on the USC campus.

As a special gift, if you register by the end of the day on May 7th this event is FREE for you and anyone else who wants to come (members and non-members)! Bring a colleague, bring a friend, bring a partner or spouse. It is a great opportunity to meet new people, learn about the future of leadership, and introduce someone new to ICFLA. Please note, if you would like to order the box dinner there will still be a charge for this. If you have already registered and paid, we will refund the ticket portion of your charge.

We also have three other free events and a teleclass during ICW. Check them out below, register, and share the events with friends, colleagues and clients. In particular:

  • Reimagining the Coach-Client Relationship on Monday, May 16 is designed for coaches and clients, or individuals considering becoming coaching clients. 
  • Reimagining Teams for the Future on Tuesday, May 17 is great for coaches or people who lead teams.
  • Reimagining Engagement and Impact: Attracting Top-Tier Talent and Clients Friday is great for coaches, HR professionals, and anyone involved in recruiting, hiring, or client acquisition.

On Monday, May 4 we also have our first Learning Lunchbox, which are learning opportunities presented by our sponsors. Our inaugural Lunchbox is presented by Krista Martin, PCC of Make Your Mark, who will share The Key Components of a Thriving Coaching Business. This event is free for members.

As you can see, we have a lot happening in May, so we hope to see your shining faces at these events. After all, YOU are the reason we make all of this happen.


In Service,

Carrie Williams, PCC

At The 360 Report, we have 15 years of experience writing the reports for you. We take your interview notes, create a thematic summary, and deliver a professional, well-written report ready for your final tweaks. We do the mental heavy lifting so you can spend your day any way you want.
