Published on 5/13/2019

Hello Coaches & Friends,

We have one more in-person meeting for this year: May 31 at 8:30 am at the Courtyard Marriott in Shelton. The program, What to Do When Strong Emotions Come Up in a Coaching Session, presented by Grace Flannery, is now available for registration. Please remember to also register for our Annual Luncheon! The new chapter board will be announced then. Come meet old friends and make new ones! More information can be found at

International Coaching Week from April 29-May 5 was a wonderful success, with our coaches meeting and joining communities in Hartford, Milford, Wilton, Stamford and in an online live webinar. It was an engaging experience for all! A big thank you to our volunteers for their dedicated effort to lead and host the programs. Our chapter seems to really enjoy Coach Cafes, and we hope you will join us at one. Our next scheduled Coach Café is at the Tusk and Cup in Wilton on May 15th at 12 pm. If you would like to host a Coach Café in your area please reach out to Monica Leggett at

We have more exciting professional development coming up for you! ICF-CT has partnered with WBECS to provide you with opportunities, discounts and CCEUs when you attend their renowned, annual online summit. Mark your calendars for May 28-June 19, for their initial, free summit, which will include 40 speaker programs. Stay tuned for special emails that will announce more on how you can access a great opportunity to participate in WBECS’ annual summit in September.

Our technology team has done an excellent job launching and running our new Club Express website and association management system. You have received tutorials in your ICF CT weekly emails and, if you haven’t already, please log in and fill out your profile. We continue to work on how we can serve you best through this system.

If you have experience, or interest in technology, marketing, meeting management, membership or program management we welcome your participation on these committees. Our board is an excellent team, working to continue our great accomplishments. Please contact me at It would be my pleasure to talk with you about how you can contribute to our amazing team!
