About the Group

The best advice for tackling your toughest problems often comes from peers who can offer a fresh perspective, or who have overcome the same issue themselves. In the spirit of supporting these valuable connections, CEO Update created this new platform for senior executives.

The CCO Forum, short for Chief Communications Officer Forum, is a peer group for senior communications executives that is designed to create an environment in which association executives can learn from one another, share information and best practices and acquire position-specific professional development to achieve their organization’s mission and goals. CCO Forum members meet quarterly via Zoom.

The CCO Forum is designed to be a small networking group in order to foster a meaningful exchange of ideas and solid, productive bonds among members. To that end, membership will be capped at 50 members.
