One of the greatest benefits of being a member of The CMO Club is joining a community of experienced and successful marketing leaders who believe in the power of sharing their expertise, learning from the experience of others, and understanding that personal connections are key to your personal and professional growth. Our CMO Club’s mantra of “you need to give to get” is predicated on having an engaged community who embraces this mentality.

Therefore, as the Club has grown with more CMOs interested in benefiting from engaging with peers, we are excited to create a Member Engagement Leadership Group of CMO Club members working with CMO Club Chapter Presidents, who’s focus is on building, enabling, and encouraging the person to person connections within the Club. Whether it is helping to answer the questions of prospective members and sharing the value the Club brings; or welcoming new members and helping them integrate via introductions to people at a Summit or across the Chapters; or being a connector of people to help them use the power of our network to solve business problems and gain ideas on how to further their careers…it’s all about driving interpersonal engagement and community bonds.
