Who can’t participate:
Membership is not appropriate for all roles and situations. These individuals are not allowed to participate:
- Front-line staff: This is a group for established leaders in decision-making positions. We don’t accept membership from front-line staffers focused on day-to-day execution.
- Trainees (regardless of seniority): We’re not a training organization, and we’re not a place for people to get up to speed who are new hires, future leaders, or experienced people who are entering this field for the first time.
- Niche roles: Members are expected to contribute to the broad, function-wide leadership conversation. People who are focused on a narrow roles don’t get value from the group and aren’t strong contributors.
