Knowledge <> Inspiration <> Networking
The Elite Speaker Series (ESS) brings the nation’s top business speakers to St. Louis to present various topics relevant to any business leader. The engaging, interactive and content-rich programming is open to all ACG members and their executive teams. Gain knowledge, inspiration and actionable takeaways by attending the quarterly ESS events.
Success Stories <> Market Intelligence <> Networking
ACG Breakfast Meetings bring together ACG members and guests for networking and presentations delivered in an efficient and professional format. The presentations showcase business owners and executives telling their corporate growth stories or subject matter experts providing timely economic or market updates. The nine breakfast meetings per year give members ample opportunities to stay connected with old acquaintances and regularly meet new contacts in the business community.
Network Hard <> Play Hard
ACG thrives by giving members the appropriate balance of valuable content, rich networking opportunities and FUN. The latter is exemplified throughout the year with various Special Events that give ACG members a chance to connect socially, personally and professionally. The Wine Tasting Event, Golf Outing and Holiday Party bring out the best in ACG and its members.
Exclusive <> Confidential <> Best Practices
ACG Corporate Peer Group is exclusive to c-level executives who have as a primary responsibility in their professional roles to grow their companies via acquisition. The Peer Group provides a confidential forum allowing peer-to-peer exchange among our corporate members who share similar responsibilities. This is an exclusive, confidential group where members get to know their peers, are able to exchange ideas and perspectives, and learn from the experiences of others.
Career Development <> Exclusive Access <> Premier Networking
