PRIMARY BENEFITS OF CEO CLUB MEMBERSHIP
The three basic benefits are
- Meetings And Roundtables
For Entire Chapter
Or Inner Circles
- International Trips
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.
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
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"
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
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
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 Inspired”.
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

The eventual movie with Ashton Kutcher,
broke even in the USA but made close
to $100,000,000 in China.
This is where members of one chapter
come to visit members in other chapters.
Because Joe Mancuso spent his first
25 years building the CEO CLUBS in the
USA, there are more USA members than
in any other country. But the combination
of membership in other countries will
soon surpass the USA. To lean about
