CEO Update Peer Groups
The best advice for tackling your toughest problems often comes from peers who can offer fresh perspective, or who have overcome the same issue themselves. In the spirit of supporting these valuable connections, CEO Update created four peer groups for association executives.

CEO-level peer groups Staff-level peer groups
CEO Update Roundtable COO Forum

CCO Forum

To create peer groups with members who have a similar of challenges and a shared experience, each peer group has membership prerequisites.  And in order to foster meaningful exchange of ideas and solid, productive bonds among members, peer groups are limited in size.
