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

sitting in classrooms reading books and taking notes and

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.
Please read about our Presidential Advisory
Councils (PAC) where about a dozen members act as a
mutual Board of Advisors for one another.

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.

The Documentary “Making Jobs: A Case Study”…
This 70 minute film is enthralling as an entrepreneurial
case study. It’s a candid look at the behind-the-scenes
process of independent film and what it takes these days
to get your project onto the silver screen. The movie
details the efforts of Marc Hulme, a first-time producer
as he begins his adventure into the treacherous world of
the “business” of American cinema with his brainchild, the
feature film “JOBS”. At the time of the making of this
documentary, the movie was entitled “jOBS: Be
The producer had never made a movie before (he purchased a
book about filmmaking), but is a lifelong successful
entrepreneur. This documentary “making of” film was
created in a roundtable format with 18 other CEOs, three
months before the Kutcher film opened at Sundance.
The documentary is a testament to what happens when
entrepreneurship meets gumption.

any other country. But the combination of membership in
