On average, RiseSmart career coaches have 12 or more years of experience in HR and recruiting. A large percentage of RiseSmart's coaches have master's degrees, PhDs and have authored at least one book on human resources, coaching, employment or related topics. ICF accreditation ensures that RiseSmart coaches continue to build on their educational foundation. "A great coach can make all the difference in a job search," said RiseSmart President and CEO, Sanjay Sathé. "Coaches help job seekers decide on a direction for their job search and future career path, develop network and interviewing skills, provide emotional support, and help create the right behavioral changes. That's why hiring and developing the industry's best coaching team has always been a top priority for us. Our reputation for delivering results, our high standards, and our strong emphasis on continuing education allows us to attract the industry's most talented HR experts." As part of RiseSmart's ICF-accredited training program, its career coaches can receive dozens of core competency and resource development credits for the training they undergo during RiseSmart's proprietary coaching certification and professional development. These continuing education credits allow RiseSmart coaches to keep abreast of the most recent trends and best practices, and to remain in good standing with their individual coaching accreditations. "At RiseSmart, we strive to invest in the professional development of each and every coach," said Kimberly Schneiderman, career strategist and practice development manager at RiseSmart. "We pursued ICF accreditation to continue attracting and growing the very best in the business and we believe to be the only outplacement firm to be accredited for internally-developed coaching programs." A RiseSmart study found that within one year of being laid off, only 28 percent of all 7,400 job seekers surveyed landed a new role without career coaching. This suggests that a coach can make a large difference in employees' chances of landing a new role. ICF is the leading global organization dedicated to advancing professional coaching by setting high standards, providing independent certification and building a worldwide network of trained coaching professionals.

ICF "is a type of permanent concrete formwork that creates the external wall envelope of a building." Typically, it is standard reinforced concrete sandwiched between two faces of low absorptive, foam plastic insulating material. Its unique, lightweight structure allows crews to construct buildings more quickly and easily than conventional methods, without compromising the integrity of the structure. "ICF is faster than building with wood, [and] concrete doesn't combust as wood does, that's the truth," said Eric Coleman, a developer with EYC Companies in a video released in August. "When you stack foam against concrete, it's the most insulated envelope… it's a far better product for an exterior envelope of a building than any wood wall." Wednesday's roundtable and tour was organized in part to serve as an information opportunity for developers interested in learning about the benefits of building multi-family residential buildings with ICFs. The conversation went on to include a discussion of emerging trends in housing and development, innovations in concrete construction, and a white paper and case study examples that showcase the benefits of concrete to design structures. The benefits of ICF are obvious. In addition to being easy to work with due to its simple design, ICF can be constructed in the winter at lower temperatures without the need for insulating blankets or a heating source. It is also highly energy-efficient thanks to insulating properties within the wall structure, and it is inherently resistant to tornados, hurricanes, fire, rot and rusting. It also has noise-cancelling properties, it costs the same as other materials, and it has a proven history around the world. "Concrete has proven itself time and again as a vastly superior building material when it comes to strength and durability," said Kevin Lawlor, a spokesperson for Build With Strength. "When you factor in the speed and ease of use of Insulated Concrete Forms, the advantages are more clear."

Caroline Lahrmann, a member of the DAA, objects to the DRO class action on behalf of her twins, who have profound intellectual and developmental disabilities. "The Americans with Disabilities Act is about protecting their rights as individuals and enabling them to make choices to best accommodate their unique disabilities and circumstances," says Lahrmann. "Without a range of choices, individuals with disabilities will be forced into a one-size-fits-all service model. Ultimately, people will be harmed and their opportunities diminished." DAA members disagree with the DRO's assertion that Intermediate Care Facilities (ICFs) and sheltered workshop environments are not as favorable as community living and working arrangements. While community homes benefit some individuals with disabilities, they are not appropriate for everyone. The parents, siblings and guardians who filed the motion know their loved ones need more intensive services and supports that are not available in a small community setting. Currently, the state of Ohio's Developmental Disabilities budget is heavily weighted toward community settings, with $1.9 billion directed toward community waiver services. In contrast, only $770 million is directed toward state-operated and privately-run ICFs. The DRO's class action seeks to widen this funding gap by taking money away from ICFs and sheltered workshops, which will likely force closures of many facilities. For Lahrmann and the parents and guardians who joined in the motion, closing important care options reduces choice, a basic tenet of the Americans with Disabilities Act. ICFs provide services such as licensed nursing, therapy and behavioral supports, personal care and 24-hour supervision. These are vital to addressing the requirements of those with complex needs such as severe and profound intellectual disabilities, quadriplegia, autism, epilepsy, maladaptive behaviors, non-verbal and requiring all nutrition through a gastrointestinal tube. Families opposing the DRO's action also say that ICF residents will be torn from the communities of friends and caregivers to which they have grown accustomed and formed attachments. Because they cannot afford legal counsel to fight lengthy litigation, the parents, siblings and guardians are representing the interests of their family members before the court. "The DRO is charged to protect and advocate the rights of all individuals with I/DD and serve as their publicly funded legal counsel," says Lahrmann. "By bringing this suit as a class action, however, DRO has marginalized a significant portion of its constituency from its services – those who cannot handle and benefit from community settings." The motion may be viewed here: http://nebula.wsimg.com/e3a89eb2227eb9d599c5b6a32897b98a?AccessKeyId=3AA4F2DE7107738E8E2F&disposition=0&alloworigin=1. About the Disability Advocacy Alliance The Disability Advocacy Alliance (DAA) is a volunteer organization which was formed in January 2015 by parents and family members to protect the rights of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Ohio. DAA's mission is faithful to the U.S. Supreme Court's Olmstead decision and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Olmstead clearly states that an individual's choices are paramount in determining residential placement. It is with this legal foundation that DAA asserts that the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities must offer a range of residential, habilitation, and employment options to meet the diverse needs of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a consulting and technology services provider to government and commercial clients around the world, reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. “Revenue growth of 4.5 percent in the first quarter represented a solid start to 2017, with each of our key client categories posting positive year-over-year revenue comparisons. Commercial revenue increased 9.4 percent from last year’s first quarter, and revenue from government clients in the aggregate increased 1.9 percent. ICF’s balanced business model, which gives us both the benefits of a large government backlog and the upside potential of a growing commercial client base, enables continued growth in both revenue and earnings,” said Sudhakar Kesavan, ICF’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Business activity progressed as expected in the first quarter. Contract awards totaled $250 million, over 80 percent of which represented new business wins. Proposal and award activity in the government arena increased progressively throughout the quarter, and we continued to experience strong demand for commercial energy efficiency work. At the end of the first quarter, ICF had a record business development pipeline of $4.7 billion, setting the stage for future growth. “We continue to actively manage our cost structure to optimize returns. In the first quarter, we incurred special charges related to facility consolidations equivalent to $0.07 per share, net of tax, which will result in occupancy cost savings over the next several years. The effect of the special charges was partially offset by a lower first quarter tax rate. Exclusive of the net effect of these two adjustments, growth in diluted EPS outpaced revenue growth,” Mr. Kesavan noted. First quarter 2017 total revenue was $296.3 million, a 4.5 percent increase from $283.6 million in the first quarter of 2016. Service revenue1 was up 3.5 percent at $219.8 million, compared to $212.4 million. Net income was $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2017, or $0.52 per diluted share; inclusive of $0.07 per share, net of tax, of special charges related to facility consolidation activities. Partially offsetting these charges was a lower effective tax rate due to tax benefits from the vesting and exercise of equity-based compensation. This compares to net income of $9.9 million, or $0.51 per diluted share in the same period of the prior year. Non-GAAP EPS1 increased 11 percent to $0.69 per share in the first quarter of 2017 compared to $0.62 in the prior year. EBITDA1 was $23.9 million, down 3.8 percent from $24.8 million in the first quarter of 2016. First quarter 2017 EBITDA margin was 8.1 percent, a 70 basis point decrease from the 8.8 percent reported in the comparable period last year. Adjusted EBITDA1, which excludes $1.7 million in special charges related to facility consolidations, was $25.6 million, representing 8.6 percent of revenue and up 3 percent year-over-year. Total backlog was $2.0 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2017. Funded backlog was $1.0 billion, or approximately 50 percent of the total backlog. The total value of contracts awarded in the 2017 first quarter was $250 million, bringing the trailing twelve month book-to-bill ratio to 1.19. Key Government Contracts Awarded in the First Quarter ICF was awarded more than 70 U.S. federal government contracts and task orders and more than 250 additional contracts from state and local and international governments. The largest awards included: Other contract wins with a value of at least $2 million included: facilitation support services to the U.S. Department of Defense Commander Navy Installations Command; engineering services for renewable projects for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy; and ongoing enterprise strategy and management services to the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs. Key Commercial Contracts Awarded in the First Quarter Commercial sales were $159.5 million in the first quarter of 2017, and ICF was awarded more than 750 commercial projects globally during the period. The largest awards were: Other commercial contract wins with accounts totaling at least $1 million included: environmental services for a wind project developer; program support services for a number of U.S. utilities; communications and digital solutions services for two major health insurers; merger and integration support and digital listening services for an industrial manufacturer; creative services for a global fast food company; impact assessment of a product offering for a social media company; business strategy and analytical services for a provider of industrial aviation services; public relations and marketing support for two food manufacturers; communications strategy for a financial services company; and ongoing marketing support for a floor care product manufacturer. “Our first quarter results support the assumptions underpinning our full year 2017 guidance. The federal budget agreement announced earlier this week, which maintained funding levels across the civilian agencies, lends further support to our assumptions. “Based on our current visibility, we re-affirm our expectation of revenue ranging from $1.20 to $1.24 billion, diluted earnings per share of $2.50 to $2.75 and Non GAAP EPS of $2.84 to $3.09 for full year 2017. Additionally, we continue to expect 2017 operating cash flow to be in the range of $90 million to $100 million. “ICF is well positioned for continued revenue and earnings growth due to our balanced portfolio. We have a diversified roster of U.S. federal, state and local, and international government clients. Additionally, we are recognized leaders across key commercial markets, including energy and aviation consulting, energy efficiency programs, and in marketing and communications services, which we are leveraging to build customer and stakeholder engagement across our entire client base,” Mr. Kesavan concluded.

"Already, reliable access to energy has helped drive down utility, product and other energy-related costs providing a $1337 boost to the average American household in 2015. U.S. industrial electricity costs are 30-50 percent lower than those of our foreign competitors, giving manufacturers – including producers of steel, chemicals, refined fuels, plastics, fertilizers and numerous other products – a major competitive advantage." "The United States leads the world in carbon reductions thanks primarily to greater use of natural gas," said Robin Rorick, API midstream and industry operations group director. "Carbon emissions from power generation have plunged to nearly 30-year lows, and more than 60 percent of those reductions from 2005 to 2016 have been the result of switching to generation from clean-burning natural gas. By moving forward with private investments in U.S. natural gas and oil infrastructure we can ensure that the United States has the critical framework to sustain America's energy leadership." API contracted with ICF to investigate the scope of the economic opportunity and the amount of oil and natural gas infrastructure development likely in the U.S. over the next two decades. According to the study: Isakower and Rorick's opening remarks from Wednesday's call and the full study are available on API's website. API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, which supports 9.8 million U.S. jobs and 8 percent of the U.S. economy. API's more than 625 members include large integrated companies, as well as exploration and production, refining, marketing, pipeline, and marine businesses, and service and supply firms.
