Spring 2023 – Chicago (20th Anniversary Meeting)

This April we celebrate *20* years since our first in-person council meeting!

When we started, there were *no* peer-to-peer councils/forums in the digital world, and there were almost *none* for non-CEOs anywhere.

Today, there are many such organizations.

We have been true pioneers inspiring many.

And, most importantly, we have together helped generations of our peers – customer-centered leaders – build better businesses (and careers) and, along the way, learn the transformative art of asking for help.

So, together we have a lot to celebrate.

For this 20th anniversary meeting, we have the following schedule.

  • Sun, Apr 23
    4:00pm: Party at Farmer’s Fridge – longtime member, Mike Brennan’s company –RSVP here
