    Members’ comments on the Alliance’s Executive Summit…

    The Alliance held its Executive Summit – the annual gathering of member society CEOs and their selected top executive  – in Chicago last week.  This year, we revised the format for the meeting based on member feedback. We made it an “invitation-only” event and included more member-to-member networking and roundtable sessions, facilitated more conversation between members and featured speakers, and limited the number of sponsorships.

    Fifty-six executives, including 32 CEOS, from 39 of the Alliance’s 63 member societies participated in the event. Attendees represented a broad cross section of the membership, with large-, medium-, and small-sized societies represented. And based on the meeting evaluations, it looks like we hit on a winning formula.

    Here are a few comments we’d like to share with you…

    • Networking opportunities. (Attendees valued these opportunities the most.)
    • Keynote speakers addressing industry transformation needs. (Specifically mentioned most often.)
    • Great choice of speakers and topics.
    • Invitation-only format allows you to really engage with people.
    • Roundtable discussion was excellent – do more of those!
    • The roundtables allowed you to discuss strategic topics with colleagues from similar-sized societies.
    • Fabulous music!
    • Speaker topics were relevant and diverse.
    • Good mix of time in sessions and time to network.
    • Highly informative – “C” suite level topics and speakers.
    • Really enjoyed the keynote speakers, but the roundtables were the most helpful feature of the meeting.
    • The Alliance does a great job of maximizing the short amount of time we are together. Even the post-classroom time at this meeting provides an opportunity to learn.

    Thanks for attending and sharing your thoughts with us. That’s how we make future meetings better for everyone.

    CEOs – Don’t forget to mark your calendar for next year’s Executive Summit – April 23-25, 2018, in Washington, DC. We will be conducting a “Day on the Hill” event in conjunction with this meeting, and so will want to have the CEOs and Board Chairs from as many member societies as possible there to deliver the fraternal message to Members of Congress.
