I hope November is going well for you. I can't believe the end of 2018 is almost here, and what a year it's been.
October was an exciting month to connect with our new members. We began the month with our first-ever Onboarding Calls to get to know our new members. Our Membership Ambassadors did a wonderful job leading the conversation -- They shared why they joined ICF, talked about the benefits of joining, and led an engaging conversation that included Q&A. Thank you to all who joined. Our next Onboarding Calls will take place in January, so stay tuned for more information.
We then ended the month with our New Member Meet Up at Vella Wine Bar. It was a fantastic evening getting to know our new members and we are looking forward to seeing them at our upcoming events.
Ready to party? Then, join us on November 28th as we kick off the holidays at Cibar at The Inn at Irving Place Gramercy Park. We'll celebrate the spirit of coaching with wonderful colleagues, friends, food, and fun. Looking forward to seeing you there - it won't be the same without you!
