Meet the ICF Prairie Chapter Board Members 2021-2022

Our Priorities

Our Priorities

In 2014 the Board created a strategic plan.

Our mission is to lead the advancement of professional coaching in Saskatchewan.

Our vision, long-term outcomes, measures and strategic priorities are shown below.

Some of the ways we’re working on the Strategic Priorities…

Since the top reason coaches in our area join is to access education and professional development, that’s key to retaining and growing our membership. We also want to help members continuously grow their coaching proficiency. So these two priorities have us focused on offering you learning and networking opportunities.

We’re a provincial chapter, and most of our members are located in Regina (56%) and Saskatoon (25%) other (19%).

Recognizing that it’s not convenient to go to a Regina event if you’re in Saskatoon, we offer some events in Saskatoon, including the 2017 PRISM awards which were held last year, which celebrate organizations that have successfully embedded coaching in how they operate.

ICF Saskatchewan also has members located in other parts of the province: Estevan; Kindersley; Prince Albert; Swift Current; Weyburn; Yorkton as well as members from Winnipeg, Manitoba. That’s one of the reasons why we experimented with an online event and are looking at other creative ways to host events virtually. If you have any ideas about this, please contact Program Directors Roland Legge (Regina), Melissa Pylypchuk (Saskatoon) and Sandra Woloschuk (Manitoba).

ICF Saskatchewan also has a private Members Only Facebook page. To be added to this page, please contact Kellie Garrett.

No matter where you’re located, ICF International has added an event calendar to its website. There are many virtual events that you can take advantage of, as well as listings of conferences/in-person learning events.

ICF International also has communities of practice that you can join. These include executive coaching, internal coaching and team/group coaching. Find out more here.

Raising awareness of the coaching profession is another priority.

The more people hear about coaching and know what it is, the more likely they’ll be to call one of our ICF Saskatchewan members for … coaching! Events are one of the ways we can promote awareness, but we also have a Twitter handle and Facebook page.

  • Follow our Twitter handle @ICFSask and we’ll follow you back.
  • Like our public Facebook Page so you can see what we post, and you can repost on your own page.

We’re exploring other ways to raise awareness and welcome your ideas

The Prairie Professional Coaches Association was established in 2010.

Meet our Chapter Members

Join Today!

I became an ICF Sk member because after taking the training, I really needed a community. I was all by myself in rural Saskatchewan, very disconnected from other coaches. Being a member has helped me stay connected and the events give me an opportunity to meet other coaches from throughout the province. I highly recommend becoming a ICF SK member – especially if you are self-employed.

Tracy Schira-Parker, CPA, CMA, ACC

I joined ICF Sask when I was new to the business of coaching. As a result, I have built lifelong relationships with colleagues interested and curious to learn and grow professionally and personally. Having worked solo for most of my career, these connections have been invaluable and inspiring. This, in addition to training and events, advertising benefits and opportunities to volunteer are why I continue my membership with ICF Sask.
