ANC Board Chair &

President Forum

There is tremendous value to be gained in learning from others.


Joining the ANC Board Chair/President Forum provides an opportunity to explore critical leadership issues and to develop and share ideas, solutions and experiences in a trusting and confidential setting.  Forum members find the opportunity to confidentially exchange ideas, discover creative solutions, avoid missteps and gain insight into coping with the challenges they encounter invaluable. Past and current members of our forums have found their time, investment and participation highly beneficial.


Forum membership excludes direct competitors while building a diverse group to support an ongoing engaging and productive dialogue. Bi-annual Forum Meetings are planned at destination locations to allow focus and full engagement of the group, and create an environment for peer mentorship, camaraderie and learning.

Groups are small and meet twice per year for 1.5 days to engage in confidential, peer-to-peer workshops lead by highly skilled facilitators who are experts in their fields.
