“This recognition reflects the hard work of the ICF communications and marketing team and points to the high quality of the marketing materials that ICF Members and Chapters enjoy,” Bodkin said. “Just as ICF coaches represent the best in the profession, we strive to create materials that are marked by excellence, which is what the APEX Awards are all about.”

“We are very proud that our staff’s efforts to make Coaching World magazine into a go-to digital resource for ICF Members were recognized with an APEX Award,” added ICF CEO and Executive Director Magda Mook. “It is also an honor to earn recognition for our series of professional coaching fliers, particularly because these pieces are often used by ICF Members in their own marketing efforts. Winning an award for providing members with outstanding benefits is a dream come true for any association staff.”
