What our members say

“There are so many things you can take away from your Vistage experience that would take you an MBA or a PhD to get. But you get them, not in the context of a classroom, but in the context of real business people talking about having actually lived through this crisis or that situation.”

—Peter Ganahl, President & CEO, Ganahl Lumber
