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

Margie Bieswanger

I have good news and bad news.

I won’t beat around the bush.

Here’s the good news: We have some great events happening between now and the end of the year. Please scroll down to read about them, mark your calendar, and join us.

Here’s the bad news: These might be the last events our chapter hosts.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Our chapter may no longer exist after this December.

Why, you ask? Well, it’s simple. Unfortunate. But simple.

We have no nominations for any ICF Indianapolis Chapter leadership role for 2017-2018.

If that doesn’t change within the next two weeks, our chapter will not be able to continue functioning.

This saddens me. And yet, I realize that the energy needed to sustain our chapter simply may not be available at this time. Perhaps a rest is needed. And then the chapter can regroup and come into existence again in the future.

The reality is that without a strong leadership team in place – a group of dedicated volunteers to organize events and keep a sense of community going – there cannot be an Indianapolis Chapter in 2017.

However, it’s not too late!

If you are a registered, dues-paying member of ICF and have been thinking of a leadership role in our chapter, NOW may be the time to act on that inspiration! You have until October 10th to contact the leadership team with your nomination.

Well, there’s much more to tell you about, so keep reading. 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!
