Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in my CEN membership?

Peer Meetings (In-Person and Online)

Each CEN meeting is structured into four distinct sections to provide maximum value in the shortest possible time:

  • Executive Briefings — Learn from other members and experts what successes they have had in your problem areas.
  • Roundtable Sessions — Fast-paced discussion on critical issues CEOs in your industry face, resulting in a number of usable best practices.
  • Ex Officio Board© — The opportunity to discuss your key issue with peers in a confidential setting.
  • Debrief and Take-Aways — What ideas and advice will you take back to your office and what changes will you make. Meetings are extremely time efficient and offer a great return on your time invested.

Leadership Conference

The Chief Executive Leadership Conference is a must attend event each year. Learn from world experts like Jim Collins, Patrick Lencioni and Verne Harnish the keys to growing your business and team.
