About CEO Referral Network
The CEO Referral Network consists of online and in-person opportunities to interact with fellow members and subject matter experts. Once you join, you’ll not only be able to connect with the CEO members in your roundtable group, but with hundreds of members across the state and beyond.
You will also have access to the many subject matter experts we know and have vetted that can provide the “just-in-time” problem solving CEOs need to grow their business.
