Ritz Carlton Beach House, Naples, FL

The CEO Roundtable
"This is the Board of Directors You Always Wished You Had"

2022 | Ritz Carlton Beach House | Naples, Florida


"I stopped going to most bank CEO conferences - they're talking about things you taught us almost 20 years ago as if they are new ideas."

— P. Steele, CEO, First Volunteer Bank, Extraordinary Banking Hall of Fame Inductee

CEOs must surround themselves with people who ask tough, thought-provoking questions because the nature of the job requires it. Climbing the ranks, you didn't get to where you are by thinking you know everything. You got there --and you stay there-- by constantly challenging yourself.

What are the most results-oriented, revered and elite community bank CEOs doing right now?

As members of The Council™, the group of elite bank CEOs led by Roxanne Emmerich are meeting weekly--in addition to twice per year for deep-dive sessions-- to share timely intel, ambitious insights and transformative ideas for pulling ahead through challenging circumstances.

In 2022, you'd do well to bring your spouse along since you'll be in the #1 Healthiest-Happiest City in the U.S. Naples, Florida was voted best beach city in America this year.


Members of the roundtable are, quite frankly, high-jumping way ahead of their competitors. Their individual and collective innovation and wisdom about what really works now and will work in 2022 are creating enviable results and breakthroughs beyond what the rest can even begin to understand.

As CEO, you need this brain trust for yourself as much as for your bank. And we just might need you too: Your unique perspective, your specific expertise, and your camaraderie.

What if you could have some of the highest-performing bank CEOs serving as your informal board of directors?

What will it cost you and your bank to not have access to this respected brain trust of the top community bank CEOs in the country? Specifically, what will it cost your sales team? Your results? Will another year go by without achieving the bigger strides you know your bank is capable of while competitors advance?

This fall, due to covid variant restrictions, the members voted to keep this event virtual one more time in hopes that next year things will finally get back to normal. We look forward to seeing you at the virtual event this fall as well as in person in 2022!


"This is my Board of Advisors. My board doesn't push me enough, challenge my ideas enough...  I need to be around the real industry transformers. That's why I come."
