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, get “unstuck,” and think differently about their business.

Since 2000 we have evolved from an initial membership of 25 to nearly 200 CEOs today who participate in monthly roundtable discussions, quarterly luncheons, Knowledge Network meetings, and annual retreats.
