DFWAE Association CEO Forum

DFWAE has established the CEO Forum for area association Chief Executive Officers, Executive Directors, or other Chief Staff Executives to engage on issues and share effective practices that they encounter regularly. This forum is run by the Chief Staff Executive (CSE) Engagement Committee. The committee work includes establishing regular meetings on relevant topics, supporting CEO content at A-day, and assisting DFWAE in other ways as necessary. We look forward to having CEOs participate in upcoming events!

If you have a topic you would like to be considered for a future event, interested in learning more, or want to be involved in the committee; please contact [email protected].
