The Chief Executive Officers Club International, Inc.
Joe feels CEOs should help one another grow their businesses by making money and having fun, while learning. Joe lives by a quote he made famous: “It’s OK to be independent, but there is no reason to be alone.”
Comprised of Chapters in the U.S., India, China, South Africa, Europe, Dubai, Korea and China (and soon to include Pakistan, Australia and the Philippines), CEO Clubs International is a 40-year-old nonprofit, by-invitation-only membership association. Members must be CEOs of businesses which have above $2,000,000 in annual sales. (The average club member has annual sales significantly greater). CEO Club Chapters typically meet eight times a year for a half-day luncheon program. A member of one chapter is a member of all chapters and names, biographies and photos are protected. The morning is often spent with roundtables and a speaker typically concludes the program. Other meetings may also be scheduled with no speaker and/or with site visits or with members from other countries.
Over the past three decades, CEO Clubs International has 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, Peter Peterson and Donald Trump, just to name a few who have addressed the Clubs. Many 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.
Many chapters frequently hold social sessions and events where we visit awesome venues like the NY Stock and NASDAQ Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, Universal Studios, Pebble Beach, and the Getty Museum. We also enjoy dinner parties, boat cruises and taking in Broadway plays. Joe frequently arranges 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.
