"The value to me is being in a group exclusively with other manufacturers. The group members come from a variety of industries, but we are all facing a lot of the same issues unique to manufacturing."
Lori Tapani – Co-President
"There is a real value in sitting in a room with people who have an outsider perspective on your business and come from different types of enterprises, but still face many similar issues. We learn from each other about the right way to do things and the wrong way to do things, the peer council helps me keep my business on the right track."
Tom Murphy – President
"The [CEO Council] group provides an opportunity to collaborate with owners who deal with similar situations. The discussion makes you think about things you might not think of otherwise. There’s openness in the sharing, so it makes you consider all angles.”
