VSA Will Hold a CEO Summit in March 2023

We’re excited to announce that VisionServe Alliance is planning a CEO Summit in March 2023. Begun in 2016 with an inaugural event in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the VSA CEO Summit is specifically geared for CEOs and Executive Directors of organizations serving the blind and visually impaired. This event focuses on facilitating connections, time for reflection, and strategic planning for executive leaders in our field.

Chief Executives are welcome to bring leadership team staff and members of their board to attend the Summit if they wish.

Here are some of the exciting things to look forward to at the CEO Summit:

  • Group discussion on key issues with other leaders in the field of blindness and vision impairment
  • Networking with your peers throughout the day during breaks, lunches, and a Dine Around at local top restaurants
  • An agenda built around executive connection and high-level training
  • Beautiful accommodations for you and your guest, should you choose to bring one.

Our full agenda for this 3-day conference will be posted later in August, but here are some of the key networking activities that will be offered:

  • Day One: Guest arrival and check-in followed by our Welcome Reception
  • Days Two and Three: Networking lunches, a Dine-Around, and a final night dinner event
  • Day Four: A morning session and Summit wrap-up

The dates for next year’s CEO Summit have not been announced but are being planned for the last week in March 2023. The dates and location will be announced in August. More information about the topics, keynote speakers, and sponsorship opportunities will also be posted at that time, so please check this page again.
