SCORE Chapter Programs
CEO Forums & Business Roundtables

CEO Forums

SCORE chapters formed the CEO Forum to address strategic issues in a peer group setting. The members of the Forums are passionate about improving the performance of their businesses through shared experiences and knowledge. Each CEO Forum group comprises 10-12 executives from non-competing businesses who meet monthly as an ongoing team. 

Business Roundtables

Roundtable sessions provide a space for small business owners to present and receive advice from one another on short-term goals, strategic challenges and plans, and discussions of specific issues of interest to the group. Outside experts occasionally attend to add to the depth of the discussion. Experienced SCORE mentors facilitate all discussions.
