As ICF continues to evolve into a large, complex global association, it requires governance with an expanded set of knowledge, skills, abilities and personal attributes to continue leading the organization and the profession of coaching in the future.
The application window for the 2019 ICF Global Board of Directors is now closed.
The ICF Global Board of Directors is a body of elected members who govern the affairs of the organization. It is the responsibility of the Board of Directors to set the vision, mission and objectives of the organization. It is up to the Board to clearly define its expectations, goals and measures of success based on information and input from the staff.
The Chair is the chief elected officer of the International Coach Federation and shall serve as Chairman of the Board of Directors. The Chair shall also serve as an ex-officio member of all committees. The Chair shall address the membership at proper times to communicate matters and suggestions that may promote the welfare and increase the usefulness of ICF. The Chair shall perform other necessary duties, including duties prescribed by the Board of Directors.
The ICF Global Nominating Committee will conduct an initial review of completed applications to narrow the field of applicants based on criteria for Board membership and requirements for the 2019 Board.

Once candidates are selected for the ballot, all applicants will be notified of their status and we will hold the election. We will announce results of the election no later than November 30, 2018.
