2021 CEO Meeting Co-Chairs

Join Now for the 2021 CEO Meeting


Creating an Exclusively Designed Event for CEOs

"We are living in unprecedented times and making the time to stand back and reflect on the big picture is more important, but also more difficult than ever. This meeting is an investment in yourself as well as your organization as it will be a chance to do some horizon scanning as you are exposed to new perspectives and ideas from your colleagues and experts both inside and outside of the STEM societies."
