Why the 2022 CEO Meeting is a "Don't Miss Event"

Nan Broadbent“If you want to forge new connections with your peers, share best practices, and learn how to be a better leader, the CESSE CEO Meeting is a don’t miss event.”
- Nan Broadbent, Executive Director at Seismological Society of America

The 2022 CESSE CEO Meeting is a unique opportunity to gather with the only people who truly understand the daily realities of your jobs. Because of this shared experience, there is a genuine camaraderie in these gatherings and a generous exchange of advice and ideas. Through case studies, presentations, and group discussions, we will explore a wide range of issues, including governance, strategic planning, reserves, and membership. 

CEO Meeting Co-Chair Nan Broadbent shares, “You can expect to leave this meeting with a renewed commitment to your role, new ideas to help your members, and some new connections—people you can call on to discuss a new idea or overcome a challenge.”
