All ICF Charter Chapters and Chapters are required to submit a Chapter Activity Report annually in order to comply with their Charter Chapter or Chapter Agreement. The reporting process is an opportunity to reflect on your Chapter’s successes and challenges throughout this calendar year.
As you prepare your report, you may find it helpful to consider these markers for high-performing Chapters and how your Chapter has demonstrated them over the last year:
The 2018 Chapter Activity Reporting window will open in September. In order to prepare for the process and understand the questions that will be asked, you may download the worksheet from last year’s reporting process below.
Please contact your Regional Support Team with any questions.

And they are delivering what members want—including the expansion of their popular “Cutting Edge Conversations” program.
