Each roundtable consists of 8-12 peers with at least one employee in non-competing businesses. Meetings are held monthly, usually over breakfast, at a participant's business, private club, restaurant or other designated location decided by the member host of the meeting. Each facilitated roundtable prioritizes issues to be discussed and develops its own agenda. A typical meeting could include discussion on managing growth, finding and retaining top talent, enhancing compensation programs, health care costs or retirement plans.
