January 22, 2021 2:32 PM | Yennie Rautenberg-Loya (Administrator)

Hello everyone,

The Board of ICF San Diego hopes your year is off to a great start. As the new president of ICF San Diego, I am pleased to share some great news.

This is the first year in ICF San Diego’s history (we launched in 2017) that we have a full board. Lynn Levis will continue supporting us as Past-President and Gaby Alvarez-Pollack is President-Elect for 2022. We have two new board members, Membership Director Jennifer Guillaumin and Communications Director Sylvia Zepeda. You can get learn more about our board here. A big thank you to Lynn and the board members who created learning and connecting experiences in 2020.

In the year ahead, we have amazing educational webinars planned for the year as well as “Networkshops” where you will have a chance to grow your relationships with local coaches and share your thoughts on current issues as well as ways to support your clients’ growth.

As a country, we are in a state of transition and healing while we continue to battle Covid-19. Many of you have expressed the stress all of this has brought to your clients. If we are to best serve our clients, we need to also focus on self-care and self-expression and I intend to make our ICF San Diego Chapter a community where you can all have a safe space to talk about the topics that are important to you. My hope is you leave each interaction, whether a webinar or networkshop, not only learning new skills, but also feeling that you have expanded hope, energy and resilience. Wellness, inclusion and how to thrive in business and personally, will be recurring themes in our work.

We are 224 members strong and growing. We look forward to serving you. Should you have any suggestions or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Here’s to your health, wellness and success in 2021.
