The leaders of growing small and mid-sized companies confront the constant challenge of “doing more” with constrained resources in the face of increasing competition. The CEO Forum was formed by SCORE Orange County to address these strategic issues in a peer group setting. The members of the Forums are passionate about improving the performance of their businesses through shared experiences and knowledge. Each CEO Forum group is comprised of 10 - 12 executives from non-competing businesses who meet monthly as an ongoing team.

What do Current Members Say about the FORUMS?
Surrounding myself with top-notch and considerate CEOs from a wide spectrum of businesses through the SCORE CEO FORUM has been one of the most enjoyable and productive business tools of my entire career. I can depend on my forum to support and guide me through difficult times caused by many factors including but not limited to the recent pandemic. In addition, I receive an abundance of satisfaction reciprocating with that support and guidance anytime I can. I recommend anyone who is too busy working in their business to join SCORE CEO FORUM and spend valuable time working on their business.
