Vistage Expands Offerings with the Launch of Networking Groups

San Diego (Jan. 26, 2015) – Vistage International, a global organization which assembles and facilitates private advisory boards for CEOs, senior executives and business owners, today announced the launch of its first four networks: Corporate Social Responsibility, Deal, Golf and Manufacturing.

“Networks were created to provide more opportunities for peer to peer connection among the 27,000 leaders who are engaged within the Vistage global community,” said Steve Dobbins, senior vice president of Member Engagement. “The networks will give members, Chairs and speakers access to deep subject matter expertise and connections that might not be found through a traditional geographic-based Vistage peer advisory group. The networks will allow everyone within the Vistage community to further enhance their knowledge base and become even better leaders.”

Network members will have access to dynamic in-person events; monthly webinars; and an online network, which will include thought leadership, expert resources, discussion boards, and network directories with deep profile information, among other benefits.

Corporate Social Responsibility
The Corporate Social Responsibility Network will serve those who are committed to creating a better world through business by providing best practices for implementation, action plans for company integration, opportunities for community engagement, as well as exploring CSR trends.

Deal
The Deal Network, with the support of its founding sponsor Axial, will provide education, resources and connections for those in the Vistage community who are interested in pursuing transactional and business opportunities for their companies in general and with other Vistage peers.

Golf
The Golf Network will provide the Vistage community with recreational and educational golf events at leading courses around the world, exclusive skill building events, best practices for leveraging golf as a business tool and access to other Vistage golfers through the Vistage Golf Exchange.

Manufacturing
The Manufacturing Network will provide opportunities for its members to grow their expertise, the health of their companies and their industry connections with targeted education and peer-to-peer best practice sharing.

New networking groups will be added throughout 2015, with even more to come in 2016.
