Associate Board Members - ABMs

Our Leadership Team Switzerland is growing!  

Please let us introduce our latest team members who are helping us become more agile and more digital.   

We have two new Associate Board Members – ABMs!  

The reason we introduced the position of ABMs last year was to improve the capacity of ICF Switzerland to deliver quality work in key areas and add critical know-how which are needed to run the organization. ABMs typically commit to at least a one-year tenure and more working hours than other volunteers and are part of the ICF Switzerland Leadership Team together with the Board, Local Chapter and Co-Chapter Leaders.

Alessandra joined us in January 2021. She is a leadership and transition coach supporting passionate professionals taking their next step to feel confident and excited. 

She believes in the possibility to lead both our professional and personal lives successfully in a way that feels authentic to ourselves. She loves to support people in finding clarity and overcoming challenges by discovering a way to lead that is aligned to their values and feels authentic to who they are.
