A Word from the President, Nathalie Ducrot, MCC

I have been very impressed by the extraordinary commitment every volunteer supporting the ICF in Switzerland has demonstrated, from the ICF Board to the chapters in the regions. With passion we, the ICF Switzerland Team, managed to accomplish  a lot already, and there are still many opportunities to grow and projects to pursue. In order to support this, I would like to encourage you to elect 4 candidates to complete the Board for 2017. It is our mission to ensure continuity, but also to bring in new and ambitious initiatives. One team, complete and complementing each other, will be the force to make it happen. Thank you very much in advance for your vote - you contribute to our activities and to the influence of professional coaching!

It's time to elect your Board

As per the bylaws of ICF Switzerland, the Swiss ICF Board consists of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 7 members, elected for a two-year term, which can be renewed once.

In 2017, the following Board Members will start their 2nd year of mandate: Esther Goette, Celine Chatti and myself as President.

Martine Corthésy, Françoise Depéry, Sonja Robinson and Peter Wolf will finish their two-year term by the end of 2016, hence it is now time to elect up to 4 Board Members for the period of 2017/18:

Françoise, Sonja and Peter would like to continue their involvement and have submitted their candidature for a 2nd two-year term. Martine has decided to move on, and we thank her wholeheartedly for the many contributions she made while serving ICF.

Two new candidates have stepped forward, and I am pleased to introduce you to Marcos Val and Francisco Baptista. Please take a look at their profiles and find out more about them.

I started to engage actively with ICF back in 2009, regularly attending the sessions in the West Switzerland chapter. That allowed me to become an internal coach within my corporate organization and eventually get my accreditation in 2015. I strive to keep developing me as coach and part of it is engaging further with ICFS, offering my professional know-how in leadership, communication and entrepreneurship.
