CEO Roundtable Program

Connecting Executives...Creating Success


For over 25 years, thousands of business owners, CEOs and top executives and managers have participated in various roundtables to discuss issues of vital interest to their businesses. Participants build on the tremendous knowledge base that already exists in the West Michigan business community and are able to tap into the knowledge and experience of their peers. The program is so rewarding that the majority of all participants rejoin year after year.

The CEO Roundtable program provides structured discussion groups of 10-13 business executives. The same group of participants gather each month in a confidential setting to discuss issues affecting their businesses.

If are you interested in participating in the program or have questions, please contact Noelle Frost at 616.771.0344 or mailto:frostn@grandrapids.org
