MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Hello Members and Friends of ICF San Antonio,

November is a time for gratitude and reflection as we count our blessings and give thanks for the gifts that life gives us. 

As we look back to 2021, I am especially grateful for the advancements in technology and medicine that have made testing and vaccines possible, and have granted us the opportunity to continue to work and stay connected in the midst of uncertainty. These same advances made it possible for my family and me to reunite with the rest of our family in Italy and the Netherlands where we had a wonderful time together this past October. 

Additionally, I am extremely grateful of the talented and committed ICF San Antonio Board of Directors and volunteers, and this year’s accomplishments: 

  • In recent months we were able to fill the Secretary and Director of Membership  positions, and welcome Dr. Melissa Mahan and Phil Bohlender to the board.

  • 24 members joined the chapter since January 1st bringing a diversity of backgrounds and niches

  • A quality professional development calendar of events has spanned a wide breadth of diverse topics and speakers from the US and abroad, as well as participants from our community and ICF communities across the globe, especially during International Coaching Week.

  • Additional connecting opportunities like the Women Coaches SIG and the monthly Coach Caf├ęs are allowing members to socialize and discuss common interest topics.

  • A growing virtual content library is now available on YouTube, Vimeo, and SoundCloud as a resource for members who were unable to attend live events.

  • Followers, shares, and comments of ICF San Antonio on social media are on the rise.

  • Partnerships and sponsorships have helped strengthen relationships with the community.

  • Conversations have taken place with ICF Houston and ICF Austin to envision an ICF South Texas Chapter that would help maximize resources and efficiency, and provide added membership benefits, while maintaining a local presence. 

  • On November 8 another fabulous ICF Mexico-USA Get Together allowed members from multiple chapters on both sides of the border to connect and build personal and professional relationships, learn from each other, and engage in meaningful conversations. 


I sincerely hope your experience as an ICF San Antonio member is one to be thankful for. Please reach out with any comments or questions you might have. 


All the best, 

~Susanna
