Out of the vast number of International Coach Federation affiliated global chapters, the Gulf Coast Chapter is one of the truly unique virtual coalitions.
Spanning an east-west territory of some 600 miles the chapter roughly includes members within 200 miles of the Gulf Coast from Southwest Louisiana to the Central Florida Panhandle. In addition other ICF members often remotely join us from areas where either no other chapters exist or virtual gatherings are preferable.
Besides geographical proximity and the ability to participate as an active member from the comfort of your home office or work space here are some other benefits of membership:
