Where does the meetings take place?
Because of the close and collaborative nature of a Chapter, meetings are always held at a member's facility. This allows the host to showcase their facility while affording other members the opportunity to experience a different perspective and benchmark. It also allows others in your office the unique opportunity to attend and broaden their view on Learning issues with no need for travel.

Membership is open to people in charge of a corporate university, corporate academy, institute or similar educational structure.
Each company may assign two individual members as representatives of their GlobalCCU Chapter.

Note: Members may not be substituted or replaced by new or returning Members.
We specifically exclude consultants and other learning providers for avoiding pressures of the market on chapter members. However, the meeting task force and the chapter leader may, at their discretion, invite outside experts to participate in meetings,
in order to provide both knowledge and inspiration.
