Making Money And Having Fun While Learning
The Chief Executive Officers Club
International, Inc. (CEO Clubs International) is a nonprofit
501-c-3 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.,
Europe, Asia, and Australia, CEO Clubs International
is a 35-year-old nonprofit, 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.
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
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.
