Primary Benefits of CEO CLUB Membership
The three basic benefits are
The CEO CLUBS International, Inc. (CEO Clubs International) is organization which creates a nurturing environment for CEOs dedicated to improving the quality and profitability of their enterprises through shared experience and personal growth. They were founded by Dr. Joseph Mancuso in 1977 as he left the chairmanship of the management Department of WPI in Worcester, Ma. Joe believed there should be a better way to learn than sitting in classrooms reading books and taking notes and exams..
We say we help one another grow our businesses by "Making money and having fun, while we are learning."
"It's ok to be independent, but there is no reason to be alone."
Comprised of chapters in the U.S., India, Korea, Romania, Greece, and China, CEO Clubs International is a 40-year-old by-invitation-only membership association. Members must be CEOs of businesses which have above $2,000,000 in annual sales. Our average club member has $20,000,000 in annual sales or about 100 employees.
The clubs chapters each meet eight times a year for a half-day luncheon program. A member of one chapter is a member of all chapters and their bio and photo are password protected on the website. The morning is spent in roundtables and a speaker usually concludes the program. Other meetings are also scheduled with no speaker, or with site visits or with members from other countries.
Over the past three decades, CEO Clubs International have attracted many national figures such as: Ted Turner, Herb Kelleher, Peter Grace, T. Boone Pickens, Wally Amos, Zig Ziglar, Fred Smith, Richard DeVos, Royal Little, Edson De Castro, Steve Forbes, Victor Kiam, David Neeleman, Pat McGovern, Michael Bloomberg, and Donald Trump, Peter Peterson, just to name a few who have addressed the Clubs. All of these past luncheon talks are free to download in our TALKS section. Be sure to listen to the talks by Frank "The Conman" Abagnale and Bill "The Unknown Billionaire" Bartmann. They are tied with the better known, Ted Turner, as most popular.
We also count among our lifetime members the founders of America Online, Jim Kimsey and Steve Case.
Each chapter also holds social sessions where we visit the NY Stock and NASDAQ exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, Universal Studios and the Getty Museum, or enjoy dinner parties or boat cruises. We frequently arrange business trips between our members in different countries, especially China. Membership is by invitation and prospective members are encouraged to attend a CEO Club meeting as a guest.

Presidential Advisory Councils or Inner Circles
PAC AND SUPER PAC (Presidential Advisory Councils)
A PAC (Presidential Advisory Council) is a group of about a dozen CEO members who serve as a board of advisors for one another - A "mastermind" group.
About 400 CEO Club members participate in a PAC. PAC members must be members of the CEO Club. PAC members must sign mutual confidentiality agreements, agree to share detailed financial information, and agree not to miss more than two consecutive meetings. They also must be in control of their company and need to have a minimum of 25 employees with at least $2 million in annual sales.
Sounding out issues or decisions with a knowledgeable, yet not directly involved, peer group can significantly improve the odds of success.
The group focuses on the host company's biggest problem or opportunities. The council then offers solutions and advice. A mastermind occurs at the end of each session as each member shares their ideas to aid the host. This is audio-taped for the host to utilize as a reference. Confidentiality agreements are signed due to the sharing of financial information. Meetings include recaps and current developments by the council members present.
A PAC meets eight times annually, at each member's business. Each meeting usually goes from 10am to 5pm.
The Super PAC is for larger companies and operates on an international basis. Minimum company size is $10 million in annual sales. Super PACs meet for three-day weekends three times a year. Annual fees are $10,000 for two people. All Super PAC members receive all the benefits of a full CEO Club member.
