CORE Peer Groups



Exclusive for CHHMA Members
The CHHMA is looking for additional members to join our successful CORE program.  See why this program offers one of the most valuable benefits of CHHMA membership!

What is CORE?

CORE stands for “Chief Officers Reaching Excellence”

How Does it Work?

Senior executives from non-competing companies (we have multiple groups set up to avoid conflicts) meet four times a year over breakfast to discuss industry/corporate issues and best practices.

Agendas are determined by the group (8 to 10 members) on the day of the meeting and sessions are facilitated by a CHHMA representative to keep them focused, candid, productive,efficient and finished on time.

On occasion, outside experts can be brought in to present or provide information on a specific topic or issue.

We currently run several groups in the Toronto area and recently have set up a new group that will meet in the Montreal area.

We also conduct similar programs for sales/account managers called SMART (Sales Managers Achieving Results Together) and HR managers.

What are the Benefits to You?
  • Attack critical problems in a friendly forum
  • Find out how others may be dealing with a similar problem or issue and alternative approaches
  • Obtain insight on industry/customer news you may have missed
  • Benchmark your company with others in the industry
  • Strengthen your bottom-line
Cost to Join:

The annual cost for four meetings is $350 + HST/GST. The fee helps to pay for the meeting facility, food and any facilitator expenses.

Introductory Meeting - No Charge:

CHHMA members can attend an initial meeting at no charge before determining whether they would like to join on a permanent basis.
