About the Council

The Council was founded in 2000 by a small group of CEOs seeking to connect and learn from their peers in the area. The goal was to find a forum to comfortably test new ideas, learn from other CEOs, and think differently about their businesses.

Since 2000 we have evolved from an initial membership of 25 to more than 200 CEOs today who participate in monthly roundtable discussions, quarterly speaker luncheons, lunch and learns, and annual retreats.
