President’s Message

Charles Furman, PCC

Founding President


December 2018


With the holiday season upon us, I am reflecting on all that we as a Chapter have achieved this year. I hope you’ll join us at our Holiday Social and Networkshop, coming up on Monday, December 17th — we’re planning it to be a time when we can gather and celebrate together.

I also wanted to take a moment to thank all the members who took the time to complete our recent Member Survey. We were pleased with the response rate, and we appreciated all of your feedback about how we’re doing! We hear you, and you’ll see many of your suggestions in action in 2019 and beyond.

One project coming up in 2019 that we’re especially excited about is the establishment of a Coach Finder service on our website. With access limited exclusively to our members, this service will help us in our mission of promoting the importance and credibility of an ICF credential.

Lastly, I’m pleased to share that the results of the 2019 ICF San Diego Board of Directors election have been finalized. Voting was open from November 12th through November 30th to all active ICF San Diego Members. Below is the approved slate of Board of Directors for 2019:

  • President: Charles Furman
  • President-Elect: Lynn Levis
  • Secretary: Felicia Lyon
  • Treasurer: Robert Little
  • Director: Kristyn Doemling
  • Director: Kelby Kupersmid
  • Director: Arthur Schwartz

We thank all ICF San Diego members who were involved in the nomination and election process.

Enjoy a wonderful holiday season.

Charles Furman
President, ICF San Diego
