How does it work?
As a member, you join a community of health and wellness professionals that meet monthly for networking meetings and practice-building training sessions. Our members develop long-term relationships, exchange referrals, share resources and best practices, and provide peer support. Membership is an affordable and powerful way to market your practice and receive critical business skills.
How is the Integrative Change Network different than other networking or professional organizations?
Like-Minded Professionals. One of the most common, and exhausting, struggles for health professionals in attending local business networking organizations is the lack of education, understanding and even resistance people can have to receiving health services. Integrative Change is an instant community of like-minded health practitioners who already understand the value of your services; this makes it much easier to build lasting relationships and therefore give and receive referrals. Many of our members belong to other networking groups which we encourage, however we believe that membership to Integrative Change is critical if you are a health and wellness professional.
Business Coaching & Training. In addition to the monthly networking meetings, IC provides individual Business Coaching, a 360 Business Assessment and monthly practice-building training sessions to help you run a more successful practice.

Am I required to attend all the meetings?
We do not require that you attend all meetings, however it is strongly encouraged to have consistency and visibility to other members. If you cannot attend, you are expected to send a substitute (a colleague, office manager, etc.).
What is “Helper’s Reward”?
This is the concept that the more you give you the more you receive. This is true in all of life and is a Core Value of Integrative Change. You may benefit in ways that you never expected. “Helper’s Reward” is a long-term strategy of cultivating trusting professional relationships and a way of life, not a way to make a “quick buck”.
What can I expect at the meetings?
IC meetings are facilitated via Zoom and include a combination of: open networking, facilitated member “commercials” in which you discuss your services, in-depth member presentations and practice-building education.
Can I visit a meeting before I apply ?
Visitors are allowed to visit one meeting before applying for membership. If you are planning to be a “Taker”–i.e. you are planning to attend the meeting, promote yourself and take contacts without a genuine interest in membership–then please do not attend our meetings. Our Network is built on Helpers Reward and professionalism, so please do not attend if you do not hold these values.
