April 4 Hybrid Chapter Meeting
MCC Coaching Demonstrations

Sara Smith, MCC – Teresa Pool, MCC – Jay Harris, MCC

ICF North Texas members have asked for returning to in-person meetings, but with a virtual option. Whether attending in-person or virtual, our goal is to offer a hybrid meeting that provides the best possible experience and value for all.

There is more complexity and expense to offering hybrid/streaming meetings compared to Zoom-only meetings. We hired an experienced professional producer to help facilitate this hybrid meeting, which is an added expense for our chapter.

The 2022 plan is to hold one hybrid meeting per quarter, with virtual Zoom-only meetings between that will remain $10.

Covid-19 Precautions For Face-to-Face Gatherings:

To provide the most comfortable in-person lunch meeting experience on January 14, here are some health precautions and arrangements we are taking:
  • Social distancing – extra space between seats at the lunch table
  • Lunch will be either individual box lunches or plated/served (instead of self-service buffet)
  • Hand sanitizer will be available
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, please wear a mask except when eating
  • Masks are welcome, regardless of vaccination status
  • Everyone is encouraged to be respectful of others’ space
  • Always ask before physical contact (tip: an elbow-bump or fist-bump instead of handshake)

Program Description:

Over the past five years, one of the most popular programs we have had was the MCC coaching demos. ICF-North Texas is blessed with several MCC coaches with several more coming soon. This month we are bringing back the MCC coaching demos. Sara Smith, Teresa Pool, and Jay Harris will provide some laser coaching demonstrations for those in attendance and those participating virtually. All participants will have the opportunity to experience two demonstrations, ask questions, and be inspired by these exceptional coaches.
