Benefits of Membership


What would you give for the ability to tap into a group of 7-10 fellow business owners who can offer you direction based on their experiences? Your Forum acts as your personal board of advisors on the situations you choose to discuss. Monthly Forum meetings allow you to explore the deepest decisions you face in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

Moderator-trained EO members guide the sessions, which emphasize confidentiality, personal responsibility and lessons learned. Members don’t give advice; they speak from prior experience, letting you draw your own conclusions on how to best proceed. Upon joining EO, your chapter’s Forum Chair will work to get you in a Forum, and will ensure you are placed with the right number and mix of business owners to avoid sharing the room with competitors.

Global Events

EO Global events combine provocative learning programs with unique resources and memorable social venues. Our biggest events, called Universities, bring hundreds of members together for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at exciting locations around the world each year. Universities, as well as smaller events like our EO Colleges, enable you to learn from business experts, experience other cultures and build relationships with members outside of your chapter.

EO | Executive Education

EO is proud to offer members the opportunity to learn at a higher, more intense level through executive education programming. Our programs strive to bring members to new levels of leadership, as well as growth and success in their business, community and family lives. Through a variety of partnerships, EO challenges members’ assumptions, tests their ways of doing business, and introduces

them to new and unexpected ways of thinking. Most important, members return to their business with fresh ideas, new skills, a toolkit of resources and a greater capacity for addressing the challenges they and their company will face.
