About Us

Greetings from Chapter President,
Lori Raggio

Welcome to 2020, a new decade and 10 years of ICFMD serving the coaching community in Maryland! I would like to thank Rayna Schroeder our Immediate Past President and the 2019 board of directors and volunteers for a very successful year. I am thrilled to be the President of this chapter during this momentous year and I look forward to the opportunity to serve you, our members. We have a theme for this 10th year and it is 2020: A New Decade of Coaching Impact and you will see and hear more about this as the year progresses and how you can get involved to support the coaching profession.

It was wonderful to see many of you at the holiday party and I encourage you to share your word(s) representing your focus and intention for 2020. I am sharing the words that the ICF MD board of directors submitted. We will be providing each other support and accountability so that our intentions come to fruition. How can we support you?

We are dedicated and committed to supporting the coaching community in the state of Maryland. We have moved to provide most of our programming via webinar so that more of our members can take advantage of the professional development offerings. I encourage you to get involved with the chapter and your coaching colleagues and to take advantage of everything ICF MD has to offer. We each bring a variety of skills, talents, and perspectives to our coaching and together we can transform our community and the world one coaching conversation at a time.

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.
