CEO forums

Open to full members, our monthly CEO Leadership forums are ideal for meeting fellow members from your locality in an informal lunchtime setting. During these two hour forums, you will hear from inspiring leadership speakers, industry professionals and have the opportunity to discuss challenges and developments from across the sector with your peers.


ACEVO has been part of my life as a CEO for the last 10 years. I have regularly taken part in the North East CEO’s forum, made good friends and been able to share in the highs and occasional lows of my role with people who are on the same journey

Open to ACEVO Senior Leader members, our forums are designed to offer you opportunities to connect and exchange with senior leaders across the

As a senior leader aspiring to become a CEO, I was really pleased to be able to join ACEVO. From where I am now, becoming a charity CEO is a tough and daunting challenge. Membership of ACEVO is helping me to shape and develop my skills.
