Roundtable discussion

"The Council connects people in an exclusive atmosphere that is CEO-only. It’s a place to relax, and know that the person across the table or across the room walks in your shoes."

— Scot McRoberts, VA Council of CEOs, Executive Director


Virginia Council of CEOs (VACEOs) is a non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating business leaders’ growth, professional and personal. Our members include top executives from across the state who commit to helping each other succeed.

The Council fosters a confidential, non-competitive, “no sell” environment in which members explore challenges and opportunities and garner insights from peers and thought leaders. Offering a unique sounding board for ideas and solutions, we help executives navigate today’s increasingly complex business landscape and gain confidence in their direction.  

The VACEOs model is based on story sharing. Peers don’t tell each other what they “should” do; members relate their most relevant experiences to benefit the participants in their roundtable groups. 

By nurturing such a safe haven culture, our community promotes camaraderie and cultivates deep, supportive relationships that contribute to rapid leadership development.


The Virginia Council of CEOs connects executives for learning and growth.


The Virginia Council of CEOs will be acknowledged by its members as the most valuable business association to which they belong.


We seek members who are comfortable within peer roundtable settings characterized by:

  • Confidentiality
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Accountability
  • A Willingness to Share Experiences


From monthly roundtables and regular social events to the annual CEO Spring Retreat and our Fall Leaders Conference, VACEOs offers a wealth of opportunities to connect, learn, and grow.
