Important Announcement 
Renewal Date - Policy Change
January 2017

What is changing?

At present, our Members and Colleagues renew on an annual basis based on the day they joined the ICF Cleveland chapter.  We are moving all Subscribers to a common renewal date that aligns with the ICF Global renewal date.  Going forward, all Subscriptions will expire on March 31st.

Why the change?

A common renewal date will:
  • Ease tracking of changes to Subscriber levels.
  • Support Member and Colleague retention through concerted efforts to promote renewal.
  • Facilitate follow-up with individuals who do not renew.
  • Reduce fluctuations in revenue providing the Board of Directors with a more clarified financial picture.
What is staying the same: 
  • Base annual fee for joining our local chapter.
  • Free CCEs via monthly in-person chapter meetings.
  • Inclusive, collegial coach community network.
  • Maintain credibility and pride in our profession.

Current Subscription Fees:

ICF Cleveland Member:  $99/year
  • You must be a current ICF Global member in good standing to qualify for this Subscriber level.
  • Free profile on chapter website Hire-A-Coach Directory.
  • Eligible to serve on ICF Cleveland Board of Directors.
  • Display the ICF Cleveland logo on personal website, social media, and stationery.
  • (Note: You must have an ICF Global member number in order to qualify for this membership type).

ICF Cleveland Colleague:  $129/year
  • If you choose not to join ICF Global, you are eligible for this Subscriber level.
  • Colleagues at this Subscriber level are not listed in the chapter Hire-A-Coach Directory.

ICF Cleveland Colleague with Directory Listing:  $159/year
  • If you choose not to join ICF Global, you are eligible for this Subscriber level.
  • Opportunity to advertise your coaching practice with a biography listing on the chapter website Hire-A-Coach Directory.

Transition Process:

  • To get everyone on the same renewal cycle, we will pro-rate the subscription fee for renewing Members and Colleagues based on the number of months between their current renewal expiration date and the new renewal date of March 31.
  • New Subscribers will be pro-rated based on the month they join and their expiration date will be set at March 31 of the following year.


Why is it a value to be an ICF Global Member?

  • Members-only access to tips, tools, research and marketing collateral to help grow your business.
  • Discounts on ICF Credential and renewals.
  • Discounted registration at ICF Advance educational events and ICF Global Conferences.
  • The ability to connect and collaborate with coaches worldwide in an ICF Community of Practice.
  • Access to and discounts on goods and services offered by ICF Business and Media Partners.
  • Please note that you must become an ICF Global Member in order to display the ICF Cleveland logo on personal website, social media, and stationery.

The benefit of being an ICF Charter Chapter:

By adhering to ICF Global’s standards, we maintain our ICF Charter Chapter status.  Being part of the global organization provides us with the ability to:  (1) Leverage the ICF brand, which stands for quality coaching and high standards, to help advance the reach of professional coaching in our region; and, (2) Utilize ICF Core Competencies, Code of Ethics, and cutting-edge industry research to provide quality programs.

Thank you so much for your continued support,
