Presidential Advisory Council (PAC)


"A Powerful Tool in the CEO’s Toolbox!"

The PAC is like a wolf-PAC(k), where all the wolves work together to bring down their prey. No single wolf can survive alone in the woods, but as part of a wolf-PAC(k) working together, they can bring down an animal many times their size and dominate the forest! Similarly, CEOs working together with other CEOs is the heart of the PAC and this mutual cooperation is a very powerful mechanism. The PAC is made up of the CEOs of the larger companies of the CEO Club. Under the guidance of an experienced facilitator, 8 to 10 CEO Club Members meet six times a year in the even numbered months at a different PAC Member’s business location and agree to serve as a mutual board of advisors/councilors for one another. An added benefit of the PAC is the CEOs develop close relationships with each other and the facilitator.

PAC Members take turns hosting each meeting by providing a meeting place for the group. The facilitator sends out an agenda and literature, if appropriate for the Host’s issue, to the PAC Members prior to the meeting. The early morning session begins with recaps and current developments by the PAC Members who introduce an issue and receive feedback from the other PAC Members. The Host then focuses on his or her single, biggest problem or opportunity and the other PAC Members share their thoughts on the Host’s issue. We call this segment “The MasterMind”. (It is similar to Napoleon Hill’s description of Andrew Carnegie’s “Power of the MasterMind” in his classic book, Think and Grow Rich when entrepreneurs began using MasterMinds with astonishing results. Carnegie describes the MasterMind as, “An alliance of two or more minds, working together in the spirit of perfect harmony, for the attainment of a definite purpose.”)

As the facilitator for the PAC, Fred Green has 40 years experience as a leader including over 20 years as a CEO. He has been elected to the Board of Directors of over 30 organizations, serving as vice chairman, chairman, president or CEO of 18 of them.

As is often the case, a single idea at one of the six PAC meetings held each year could pay back many times more than the annual dues. We will not charge for the first meeting, as it will serve as an introduction of the PAC concept.


Each PAC Member must:

1. Be a CEO Club Member and be invited to attend, 2. Be accepted by a unanimous vote of the current PAC Members, 3. Pay the quarterly dues of $1000, 4. Sign a mutual confidentiality agreement and 4. Agree to share financial and operational information pertaining to their issue.

From discussions with some of our CEO Club PAC Members, the PAC is the best part of the CEO Club.It's a time when a small group of people, with the same responsibilities, similar needs and motivations, get together to share their issues - whether those issues are opportunities or problems. The PAC Members then work together in a non-threatening and supportive environment to either offer ideas to expand their opportunities or suggest solutions to help solve their problems.
