CEO Summit - Spring 2017 Charleston, SC

VisionServe Alliance hosts our 2nd Annual CEO Summit, "Adapting to Lead," May 7 - 10, 2017 in Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston was named as the top travel destination in 2016 by Travel + Leisure Magazine,    and is consistently named one of the best cities worldwide for its restaurants and cuisine.

Attendance is open to CEOs of member organizations. Attendees will participate in leadership training, networking sessions, discussion groups and more. This year's CEO Summit focus will be on Transformational Leadership, including a keynote address by Joseph Ripp, Chairman of Time, Inc., and an interactive learning session with our own Dr. Gidget Hopf. The second day will focus on needs assessments, WIOA, Baby Boomers, and more. Exciting networking opportunities will include carriage rides and walking tours to soak       in the history and atmosphere of Charleston, touring one of America’s most beautiful plantation gardens, and     a tasting tour of Southern cooking.

The setting is the beautiful Mills House Hotel, one of few AAA Four Diamond antebellum hotels in the state     of South Carolina. Opened in 1853, this authentic antebellum hotel has 216 guest rooms and flourishes of beautiful marble floors, crystal chandeliers and antique reproductions. Located in the heart of the historic dis- trict, the Mills House Hotel is the ideal place to take advantage of the countless shopping, dining, touring,      and sightseeing opportunities.
