Membership Engagement

What we do

As Membership Engagement committee members, we nurture and strengthen the connection within our community in the ICF NYC Chapter. Our committee is an essential part of coming up with ideas and implementing actions for member engagement for sustained growth. We make sure our members feel welcomed, as well as informing them about the benefits of being an ICF member in our community.

"I am a solopreneur and do virtually all of my coaching online; it can be lonely at times. Volunteering on the Membership Engagement Committee for ICF New York City helped me to address a major challenge that I was facing. How do I avoid being isolated and create a community of peers to ensure that I routinely interact with, and learn from, other coaches? Over the past two years I have had the opportunity to help shape the way in which we onboard new Chapter members; to work with our Chapter President; to personally talk with close to a hundred coaches as they joined our Chapter; and to form a community of coaches that I can call on and refer others to as appropriate. And I’ve been able to do so in a way that fits my schedule!"Brian Gorman
