Organizational Excellence Roundtable

S5 logo bg

Brainstorm and share ideas with peers regarding how to optimize your association’s impact on your members and key stakeholders, with organizational alignment that enhances the health of your association.  

Formed in 2010, this forum is designed for Executive Team Members who report to an association CEO in the DC Metro area.


This forum is by-invitation-only and members make an annual commitment to each other to actively participate.  No vendors other than the facilitators from Vertical Leap Consulting.  There is a one-year membership term that involves a nominal annual fee and members take turns hosting the meetings and providing a simple lunch for the group.

Timing & Location

This forum meets 3 times during the year for approximately 3 hours per meeting; generally beginning at noon.  These meetings are scheduled at the start of each year, attempting to avoid members’ annual meetings, etc.  Forum members rotate hosting the meeting and providing a simple lunch for the group.


Peer dialogue format.  Based upon member feedback, the facilitator selects 2 topics in advance of each meeting to have drill-down dialogue; each being a key component to impacting members’ outcome objectives while positioning the association for continued organizational alignment and health.  We also try to reserve some time for “got to have it for tomorrow” advice from the group.
