Our mission is creating, sustaining and enhancing Private Company value through the active use of Boards of Directors and Advisory Boards.  We advocate for excellent practices in board formation and governance. We provide a national network where executives and professionals interested in board service can find and meet with those interested in securing exceptional board members.


CEOs, Owners, and Board Members will share a forum to learn, discuss, and exchange insights with other CEOs, Owners, and Board Members on why and how to effectively use Advisory and other Boards.

CEOs, Owners, Board Members, and those seeking to be Board Members will be provided with experience based and other value-based educational content and networking opportunities in chapters located in cities around the globe as envisioned by our Founders.    

Widespread use of effective advisory boards by Private Companies' CEOs, Owners, and legal boards, as well as the strengthening of Private Company governance boards, will result in a vibrant sustainable plurality of Private Middle-Market Companies.
