Executives’ Club Signature Programs

The Executives’ Club of Fargo-Moorhead Signature Programs are a series of specifically designed meetings, each with unique opportunity and intrinsic value for business leaders.

Individual programs are driven by collaborative efforts and commitment of our Members. These “Drivers” arrange the dates, schedule presenters, topics and, with assistance from other Members as “Contributors”, develop and nurture these Signature Programs:

Into each meeting, we strive to incorporate each of our Executives’ Club core values:

  • Be Upfront
  • Get To Know Each Other
  • Learn By Teaching
  • Create Big Moments
  • Live Intentionally
