The CEO Peer Advisory Program provide members with access to their own confidential board of advisors who gather monthly to exchange best practices, past experiences, thoughts, ideas and overall general guidance regarding growth, health and overall success in their business. Each group is comprised of 8-10 C-Level executives from non-competing industries who assist one another with business problems, solutions and opportunities. The groups meet monthly with the determination on date/time established by each group.
