February 2021 Newsletter Print

A Message from Our president


It is gratifying to know that we have a strong and growing chapter, and we are grateful to all of you who are able to participate and take advantage of the webinars. This is where we are building our collective knowledge and expertise as well as joining the popular Coaches Corner events that are supporting connections between our members in addition to creating ongoing and meaningful relationships.

With the need for us to remain cautious and distanced, it is also vital to stay connected to our friends, family and community which serves as balm for our souls and sustains our wellbeing. To that end I want to take this opportunity to remind you that February is time for the ICF membership renewal. It is also when we begin our membership drive to support our members in maintaining connection to their peers and fellow coaches in SFBAC.

We hope you will continue to take advantage of what the chapter offers, bring your talents and your time as we look forward to your continued engagement in 2021.

Rosalind Franklin
SFBAC President 2021

Chapter News

California Conference for Women

The world has changed dramatically and women need our support more than ever. And as members of the SF Bay Area Coaches ICF Chapter, you’ve told us you want to help. Therefore, we invited our chapter to volunteer as a Career Coach in the new 2021 California Conference for Women, which is all-virtual and runs from March 4-12th.

For more information on the California Conference for Women, including their amazing keynote speaker lineup, please visit their website at https://www.caconferenceforwomen.org.

For those who volunteered, the conference offers each coach a complimentary ticket to the full-day Conference, and recognition in the Conference Program and on the Conference website.

If you missed this one, we will be organizing similar pro-bono coaching events several times a year, and we will send requests for volunteers in this newsletter and via e-mail. Don’t be a stranger if you have questions -- you can reach us at [email protected]!

Thank you,
Christy Brandt & Dave Story
