ICF Vision: To represent the highest quality in professional coaching.
And it works thanks to the volunteers who believe in the power of coaching.
ICF is a professional association not a club. It is a specialized body of knowledge,and consists of a repertoire of behaviors and skills. ICF’s mandate is to maintain the integrity of our profession, and it helps us grow our businesses by providing standards of practice, certification and educational accreditation; by expanding coaching awareness with research and marketing; and by creating events for our community to come together for learning, inspiration and connection. We promote the understanding of the coaching profession and the visibility and credibility of our duly trained and accredited members.We build trust with our clients by adhering to the ethical standards, supporting the certification process, and committing to the promises we make in our contracts. Both your success and the success of ICF move the profession forward all over the world and here in Switzerland.
And ICF is shaped by you!
Being an ICFS Board member is an honor for me. I started my volunteering commitment for ICF in 2014 as a Co-Chapter Leader for Suisse Romande; eventually I became the Chapter Leader before I joined the Board as a member in 2016. Now having been President for a year,I can honestly say that co-creating with my coaching community is a wonderful experience. I enjoy the collaboration with other committed and passionate volunteers and consider myself lucky to support the mission of ICF.
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 2019, the following Board Members will start their 2nd year of mandate: Christine Billy; Karin Meerhoff. Françoise Depéry and Peter Wolf will finish their two-year terms by the end of 2018, and Louise Penrice will be moving to Asia next year. I and the whole Board would like thank them wholeheartedly for the many contributions they made while serving ICF throughout many years. Francisco Babtista had already left the Board during mid term.
Hence it is now time to elect up to 4 Board Members for the period of 2019/2020!
I encourage you to participate in the vote for the Board members of your ICF Switzerland. Please take a look at their profiles and find out more about them, their motivation and energy.
