About Us

Mary Ellen Waltemire, PCCGreetings from Chapter President,
Rayna Schroeder, PCC

Thank you for joining us and welcome to the ICF Maryland Chapter website. I am grateful to be President and have the opportunity to lead such an amazing chapter.

After nine years as a chapter (we celebrate ten years in 2020), we are off to a strong start in 2019. Based on your participation in our member survey late last year, we heard you and thank you for your feedback. As requested, one area of focus for 2019 will be to provide you tools and resources on recertification so you can plan for and reach the level of certification you desire. We also heard that you appreciate webinars since traffic can be difficult, so we are offering many of our Professional Development events virtually in 2019 with most of them being recorded so you won’t miss a thing if you cannot attend the live event.  

Whether you are new to the coaching community or a veteran, now is the time to think about, "How can I get the most out of my chapter membership for myself and my business?" Maryland Chapter members agree that the benefits of ICF membership are many…

  • Cutting edge programming through both in-person and virtual events that offer CEUs to support ICF credential renewal.

  • Support of other coaches through regional meetings and networking events.

  • Business development ideas through monthly educational sessions.

  • Connection to the Global Coach Community which offers research, resources, and discounts for business services and products.

We have a great Board in place to support you, our members, and we would like to hear from you. I invite you to share your questions, suggestions, and offers of help to [email protected]. Getting more involved in the Chapter is a way to connect to your passion for coaching, grow your business and make a difference in the world through coaching.

All the best,

Our Mission

We are a local/state chapter of the world’s largest international non-profit coaching association. ICF-MD was formed in 2010 to meet the growing need of coaches throughout the state of Maryland to connect, learn, and promote the profession of coaching. We co-exist and collaborate with other local chapters on the east coast, including Metro DC. We provide regular networking and professional development opportunities for members and non-members in a variety of ways. By participating in chapter events, or events co-sponsored with collaborating chapters, you can earn CCEU’s toward and ICF credential or membership renewal.
