CEO & Management Roundtable Program

Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce / Events & Programs / CEO & Management Roundtable Program

CEO Roundtable

Connecting Executives…Creating Business Success

For 27 years, thousands of business owners, CEOs, top executives and managers have participated in various roundtables to discuss issues of vital interest to their businesses.

If you’re looking for a group that gives you feedback on some of the tough business issues you are facing and can speak from their own personal experience in similar business situations, then the CEO & Management Roundtable Program is for you.

The CEO & Management Roundtable program provides structured discussion groups of 10-13 business executives, CEO/owners, team leaders and management professionals. The same group of participants gather each month in a confidential setting to discuss issues affecting their businesses.

With a variety of professional tracks and industry-specific tables, the program is so rewarding that the majority of all participants rejoin year after year.
