Vision and Values

Our Vision

We bring together the world-wide community of Chief Operating Officers and other Second-in-Command Executives striving for superior leadership.

Our Mission

COO Forum’s Mission is professional development for Second-in-Command Executives through peer-to-peer collaboration, education, forums, networks, employing a local, regional, national, and global approach.

Our Values

Peers Learning

COO Forum Members learn, grow, and become more effective as a result of their peers.  They ask for guidance, exchange knowledge, share ideas and develop Best Practices – all within a community of peers that is safe and supportive. 


We strive for the highest integrity throughout all activities and events.  Our Member expectations are to ensure this same high standard within their COO Forum involvement.


Respect is a cornerstone of peer-to-peer collaboration.  Respect for our companies and our CEOs is paramount at the COO Forum.


Information learned from involvement at the COO Forum falls into the doctrine of confidential information and is to be treated accordingly.


Each Member chooses the right approach for them as to time, activity, and collaboration.


We strive to support the needs of fellow members and the willingness to help and encouraged.


At the COO Forum we do not sell or prospect for business to and from fellow Members.
