What Our Members Say
"The CAO/COO Council is a tremendously valuable resource for me. Building connections with people who’ve struggled with the issues I’m facing at the in-person meetings and augmenting that through our Council’s listserv has been a great help to me. There is a true sense of comraderie within the council, I value the professional and personal network that has resulted from my involvement. It’s a group you really have to be a part of."
