Guild Membership Qualifications
The candidate approval process is designed to increase the value of each member’s participation by bringing together only those chief executives who have a strong desire to both clarify and achieve their professional and personal visions and goals and help their peers do the same.
Candidate Job Title
The candidate must hold one of the following titles: President, Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, Executive Director, Managing Director, Managing Partner, or be the local chief executive of a division of a major corporation.
Membership is limited to those at the top of their organization because the buck-stops-here leadership issues discussed in our roundtables are unique to chief executives and different from the issues faced by COOs, CFOs, CIOs, and other senior executives.
Candidate Organization Size
Membership in the Chief Executives Guild is exclusively for chief executives who lead medium to large (multi-million to multi-billion dollar) organizations, manage a senior-executive team, and are responsible for a sizable workforce.
Candidate Organization Type
The candidate’s corporation may be a public, private or closely-held corporation, limited liability corporation, partnership, academic institution, not-for-profit organization, or government entity. The corporations must be operating as a business not primarily generating passive income.
