Letter from the President | ICF Indy Chapter News | February 2016

Margie BieswangerAnd so another year of outstanding ICF Indy programming has begun. Wow!

We had 20 people attend the January chapter meeting and the feedback received has been overwhelmingly positive. Thank you for attending!

If you’ve been thinking about attending a program or becoming active with the chapter, this is the year to do it. We have a lot in store for you. I’m sure that something will appeal to you. :-)

In fact, we’ve got a Coffee Chat coming up next Thursday, February 11th. I hope to see you there. We already have 13 people RSVPed and we want YOU to join us. (Register here.)

I'm AttendingThe last thing I want to be sure you’re aware of – and it’s a really BIG thing to be aware of – is that Early Bird registration is OPEN for the Midwest Regional Conference. You remember … the conference that is taking place right here in Indianapolis, Indiana, this June?!

Be sure to read Julia Mattern’s column. She is keeping us updated on the conference planning (thank you, Julia). And get yourself registered. I’m already registered and cannot wait to see you there!

Stay connected. Be an active part of this community. And definitely plan to attend chapter events this year.

I can’t wait to see you again or meet you for the first time!

Margie
