We’re writing to check in on how you’re doing. The situation around the world with regards to COVID 19 continues to evolve. CEOs are navigating their personal and professional lives through a variety of offline and online resources. Friends and family are stepping up to help arrange celebrations like virtual baby showers, weddings and birthdays. These celebrations have provided CEOs some respite from today’s challenges such as adhering to new policies, securing funding from the CARES Act, and keeping their employees safe and morale high.

During the pandemic, Atlanta CEO Council has tripled programming through virtual gatherings offering CEOs and C-suite to connect to capital, customers, talent and each other. Our gatherings are not recorded, instead, they are produced into articles and published on social media. Past topics include office reopening, COVID 19 the virus, and the CARES Act. Our CFO virtual gatherings are attended by CFOs with over a 100 years of collective experience. Also, we will continue to offer Deal Talk to our members!
