CEO Forum Registration



Due to the forecasted path of Hurricane Florence and the likely impact across our three states, we have decided to postpone the CEO Forum to November 8-9, with a welcome reception the evening of November 7th.

If you are able to attend on the new dates, The Greenbrier will simply transfer your current hotel reservation.  If you are NOT able to attend on the new dates, The Greenbrier has agreed to cancel your reservation and provide a full refund.  We will be in touch very soon with more information about how to cancel or adjust your hotel reservation once we receive specific instructions from The Greenbrier.  Please stay tuned…

We will keep you all registered for the event unless we hear from you that you are not able to attend on the new dates, at which point we will process a full refund of your registration fees.  Please contact Melissa McLeod at or (804) 819-4749 to process any registration adjustments.
