The Center/SBDC PEER Group

About this PEER  Group


About the CEO Peer Group:

The CEO Peer Group will consist of 10-12 dedicated business owners and leaders with the biggest requirement being an entrepreneurial spirit.

  • The Peer Group will meet monthly for a full day (10 times per year) for the purpose of sharing, learning and helping each other.
  • CEO Peer Group members come from diverse businesses—family-owned, private and
    public—and various industries of varying sizes and scope.
  • Each group’s members are chosen to complement each other in order to work well together.
  • Only non-competitive businesses will be brought into each peer group.
  • The group serves as an informal "advisory board" to its members, giving all members
    an opportunity to get feedback on ideas and issues important to them.

Member Principles

CEO Peer Group members agree to:

  • active and open participation, including business operations, case studies, challenges and acquired leadership tactics.
  • total confidentiality, and non-competitive nature and operations.
  • willingness to give, and take, feedback on all ideas and issues.
  • host at least one meeting, supplying meeting place and refreshments.
  • a commitment to strive for 80% attendance.
  • recognize and adhere to the fact that this is not a leads-generating networking group.
