The CEO Dinner series is one of the organizations longest standing institutions. Each month our Professional Members have the opportunity to join a local company's CEO or Courageous Community leaders for a private dinner. These events are intentionally limited to 15 to 20 people, so everyone has a chance to listen, learn, share and grow together through honest discussion. The speakers represent a wide range of companies and industries, both big and small. Attendance costs $35 for professional members, which includes dinner and drinks at the Union Club. Members also make connections with other professional members in attendance.
