ICF Conference

It was great to see so many of you at the 2011 International Coach Federation Annual Conference in Las Vegas.  We greeted old and new friends at a Monday evening reception and at our exhibit booth.  We’ve included a few conference photos.


New Credentials
We are proud of the Executive and Professional Coaching Program at UT Dallas and proud of all of our graduates. Recent graduates from our eleventh cohort are already joining the ranks of ICF credentialed coaches. Our earlier cohorts also continue an impressive record of professional development.  We want to congratulate the following coaches who have received a new ICF credential, and continue to be involved in the UT Dallas community:

Mary Anne Hoffman, PCC, Cohort 5A, October, 2011 [HR Manager and internal coach at Ford]

Steve Fawcett, ACC, Cohort 7A; September, 2011
Ross Woodstock, ACC, Cohort 7A; September, 2011
Tonja Laney, ACC, Cohort 7B; September, 2011
Carolyn Baana, ACC, Cohort 8A; October, 2011

Next Information Session for Spring Cohort and Master’s Program

The Executive and Professional Coaching Program is thriving at UT Dallas and we continue to look toward the future.  The Master’s Degree Program is in its second year and is open for new student applications. Cohort 9A began classes in September and we are now accepting applications for Cohort 9B, to begin in March, 2012.

You are invited to join an interactive group Information Session with an overview and Q&A on both programs, including options for each.  Our next information session is scheduled for Thursday, November 10th at 5:30 p.m. U.S. Central time. It will be conducted on a group teleconference line so you can call from anywhere in the world. If you are interested in attending, send an e-mail to with "Information Session" in the subject line.
