How do I know I’ll get value (ROI)? What results are members getting?

The value of peer groups is a time-tested principle. When people who desire to improve themselves come together in a small, focused group to problem solve, the resulting sense of connection and accountability creates positive, forward thinking outcomes. Our national members are proven examples of the value of peer groups.

Our brand guarantees your money back if you don’t make a 10X return on the amount of money you paid to attend the event, in a decision, or change you plan to implement upon your return to the office.

How can I justify the additional time commitment?
(This is more work!)

Taking 6 days out of the entire year to be strategic is absolutely crucial to growing the skills you need to evolve with your company, and maintain positive business outcomes.

How long does the membership last?

Membership is annual and renews once per year.

Should I be in the City Forum (regional program) or in the
national program? My company’s revenue is $3 million and
I think City Forum is too small.

It really depends on what you’re able to pay – that typically has to do with the size of your company. You may also want to consider your location and ability to travel for national events. If travel is not an option, City Forum is a great local alternative. If you’re still unsure about which is right for you, contact us.

Do you also provide 1:1 executive coaching? Why? Why not?

Our founder does provide 1:1 executive coaching – To learn more, email Meridith Kuba. Depending on your region and company size, the local chair in your area may be a more viable option.

Where do you find your chairs?

All chairs apply and are heavily vetted. They all have in-depth experience and are expert facilitators of company and people growth. Many of our chairs are also executive consultants and/or have executive roles in their own companies.

How do I get started?

Fill out your application to start the application process. Once you submit your application, you’ll have the opportunity to book a call with Cameron Herold.

Can I contact my local chair?
