Member News

news from east tennessee subchapter

East TN

The East Tennessee Subchapter has kicked off 2020 by regrouping and identifying what the group would like to gain by being a member of ICF Tennessee. Our initial objective is to build a cohesive and vibrant coaching community in our part of the state. We have had one face to face meeting (January 9) and one zoom meeting (January 24). We will be participating in Coaching Week by holding open sessions on May 6th at the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center. In order to get things started we will participate in a series of zoom meetings in order to build relationships and new networks as well as share our learnings and challenges. If you are interested in joining us please contact Laurie Macnair at [email protected].
