These professional membership organisations aim to define, create and promote best practice for their members working in the field of coaching. Some examples are the Association for Coaching, European Mentoring and Coaching Council and International Coach Federation. They provide a reference point for key elements such as standards, ethics and professional coach development. They also disseminate original coaching knowledge and research through conferences, member events and their own journals and research reports.
