Bev Lutz ICF membership provides incredible professional networking opportunities, professional and personal growth, and opportunities to explore my strengths as I volunteer in service of my profession.  My chapter really helps me stay current with coaching, thought leadership, and learn-n-earn (CEU’s) from professional development events.  But it’s the supportive coach-friends and collaborators who have made membership for me priceless. //s3.amazonaws.com/ClubExpressClubFiles/907122/graphics/BevLutz1_669008720.jpg

The 2018 Gaston Award

Each year ICF Minnesota recognizes a member who has exhibited distinguished service to the coaching profession and to the chapter.

The evening was a beautiful tribute to the distinguished service of coaching and Jennie Antolak, the Gaston Award Recipient for 2018. We celebrated an evening with coaches, family and friends through heartfelt stories that took us on an inspiring journey. Mantras of “trust the process” and “surrendering to your purpose” were ever present and a great reminder to get out of our own way.
