Chamber re-launches CEO Roundtable

It's lonely at the top! Are you a CEO looking to connect with other company leaders about business issues and challenges? Are you craving a small network of peers that you can turn to for on-going, confidential advice on increasing profitability, succession planning, leadership, employee management, marketing, and the many other issues that you deal with on a daily basis?

With input from chamber members, we've improved and re-launched the Nashoba Valley CEO Roundtable.

This group meets monthly to facilitate valuable, confidential, peer-to-peer advice and networking among local CEOs that will help them grow their businesses.

Group members choose a night to serve as host/hostess and provide a meal. During the business portion of the meeting, the host presents the group with an issue and solicits advice about how to address the challenge. Time will also be set aside for members to discuss time-sensitive issues, and for the previous month's host to report back.

CEOs interested in joining the roundtable should fill out an application on our website at http://www.nvcoc.com/form/view/10429.
