Customized CEO Symposiums

Are you a federation or a national organization looking for additional value to your state or affiliate organizations? Consider a customized CEO Symposium for the leadership teams at your next gathering. Extend the benefits of ASAE’s renowned CEO Symposium—tailored specifically to your needs. Engage your local, state, and regional CEO s with their elected leaders to create an alignment of unparalleled strength throughout your organization. Contact Mark Milroy for more information.

For more than two decades, the Symposium for Chief Executive & Chief Elected Officers has provided an opportunity for the staff executive to connect with his or her board chair to define annual priorities and determine how to work better together. The CEO Symposium provides insight into challenges facing association leaders and highlights the value of informed policy and strategy as primary tools of the leadership team. The result is a common understanding and commitment to the key components of successful governance, strategy, and organization.

CEOs and elected officers will...

  • Clarify issues
  • Build your relationship
  • Jump-start important initiatives
  • Gain insights into organization dynamics
  • Understand each other’s values, desires, and interests

Led by Glenn Tecker and faculty from Tecker International, LLC, every CEO Symposium provides fresh ideas and concrete concepts.

Who Should Attend

The CEO Symposium is exclusively for leadership teams from organizations rather than solo attendees. Exercises allow for substantive dialogue between staff and volunteer leadership and opportunities to establish a working relationship.

Hundreds of symposium alumni declare the CEO Symposium to be a critical success vehicle for every leadership team—whether you are a new executive, seasoned leader, or repeat attendee.

Your volunteer leader’s term is short, so make the most of it from the start. The CEO Symposium is the perfect opportunity to begin to build strong partnerships and establish a culture of trust.

Many have discovered the significant role the Symposium plays in creating mutual success and return year after year with their new, current, or incoming leaders. All attest to the uniqueness of each session, the constantly updated content, and the unparalleled value of the experience.


“We regularly attend the CEO Symposium and find it enormously beneficial in building the Chief Elected/Chief Executive Officer partnership, clarifying mutual roles and responsibilities, and reinforcing the essential nature of a disciplined, thoughtful and collaborative approach to strategic thinking and action. This program is a must for any organization that seeks to become more strategic and optimize the contributions of elected and staff leadership.”

The value of a custom CEO Symposium

“Associations and their board are extremely dynamic – what a difference a change in leadership makes. The value of attending the CEO Symposium with incoming chief elected officers has made my job of orienting leaders to the complexities of the association much easier. We spend quality time together, problem solve, and acquire the latest association trends and problem solving tools.”

—Peter Preziosi, PhD, CAE
Chief Executive Officer
Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity
