Conference Policies:

 

It makes a difference if you are an ICF Global member or not, and there are a options for registration; Full Registration, or Specific Event Registration.

 

Please read the following policies before you register.

 

ICF Global Member Discount 

ICF Global members are eligible for the “ICF Global Members” pricing for full registration only. In order to be eligible for this pricing, please note the following: 

Registrants must be a member of ICF Global at the time of registration (note: a membership with a local ICF chapter does not mean an individual is a member of ICF Global).  Please direct questions regarding membership with ICF Global to 
headquarters@coachfederation.org

Registrants must enter their ICF Global membership number in the appropriate field on the registration form at the time of registration. Membership numbers may be obtained at www.coachfederation.org


All ICF Global memberships expire on March 31, 2018. To remain eligible for the ICF Global member discount, memberships must be renewed by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 1, 2018. Conference registrations for lapsed ICF Global memberships will remain in place; however, the difference between the discounted ICF Global member rate and the non-discounted rate will be required. The difference paid will correspond with the rate paid at time of registration (e.g. those who registered for the discounted ICF Global Member Early-Bird rate - $497.00 – will have to pay the difference between it and the Non ICF Global member Early-Bird rate - $627.00).


ICF Global membership renewals for the discounted rate will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 1, 2018 and you are encouraged to renew your membership regardless.


Conference leadership will verify your eligibility for the ICF Global member rate with ICF Global after June 4, 2018.
