Now is the time to reserve your place at the 2020 ICF All-Texas Coaches Retreat and Conference at the Canyon of the Eagles in Burnet, Texas, April 2 – 5, 2020.
Register now. Don’t be left out. Time is ticking!
As of today, there are nine spaces for people who want to register. It will then be sold out—which is expected to happen this month, based on our data. (We would love to have nine more North Texas coaches in attendance.)
Two documents will be added to our Facebook group to assist you in identifying a roommate, for those wanting to cut their costs or for those wanting to room with someone who already has a reservation at Canon of the Eagles. There are also rooms available at Painted Sky Inn.
Be sure to join the ICFTX Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ICFTXconference/). We will update the Facebook group with all the information you'll need. Emails are not being sent out so watch the Facebook group for updates.

ICF North Texas 2019 Holiday Party - A Good Time Was Had By All!
The 2019 ICF North Texas Holiday Party was hosted at Noah’s Event Venue in Irving and had a fun ugly sweater theme (and contest!). With a buffet dinner provided by Blue Mesa, drink tickets and a holiday themed photo booth, there was something for everyone.
As a part of the festivities, games were played and prizes were awarded. Although we know everyone in our chapter is a winner, here are the winners of the games and raffle prizes.

What's a LINC?
Laugh Interact Nurture and Contribute—an acronym that represents how our larger chapter gets smaller and more effectively connects our members to each other. LINCs are member-only small groups that are formed around a common interest. Our chapter has had LINCs formed to help members achieve their credentials or level up their credentials, to share in the discussion of a book that everyone has read, and to learn about digital marketing tools.
All that you need to do to launch a LINC group is identify an area of interest, put a little description around it and identify a place to meet (it can be virtual). Contact Jim Cooper or Cheryl Close, our members who launched the LINC concept and help us maintain the “loose” structure around it. They will assist, along with our Board leadership, to help you promote it to our chapter.
One of the currently active LINCs is the Digital Marketing LINC that meets on the first Friday of the month. The next meeting is February 7 at 9:30 AM CST. Click here to register.
