The International Chapter Officer Forum (ICOF)

The International Chapter Officer Forum (ICOF), formerly known as the Chapter Presidents' Meeting, is held annually. It is always held the day before the Alumni Association Board of Trustees meeting, so the chapter presidents can attend the next day. Every year there are approximately 75 or more chapter presidents or their representatives that attend the meeting in Alumni Hall. 

The ICOF meeting is the prime time for the chapter officers to get together in one location to discuss chapter best practices and get updated on Naval Academy activities, information that they can then take back to their chapters. Over the years, many Naval Academy speakers have presented at the event, including the Superintendent, Commandant, Dean of Admissions, Academic Dean, Athletic Director, selected varsity coaches and the Deputy Commandant, just to name a few.
